The Latest Drying Equipment 

Using modern drying technology, building materials can be restored completely and don’t need to be replaced. The reduced drying times allow for lower restoration costs with minimal disruption. Some options are:

  • Desiccant dehumidifiers release dry, warm air (110 degrees F and 5% relative humidity) in high humidity conditions to eliminate the moisture from the air. Using silica gel to absorb the water particles in the air, they are very effective and even operate in temperatures set below freezing.
  • Intra-wall drying dries the insides of walls without removing the drywall itself. Baseboards are first removed, then small holes are drilled through the drywall at the base. Air is then pushed into the cavity behind the wall, allowing for a faster drying time, sometimes even half that of other drying techniques.  
  • LGR Dehumidifiers can lower relative humidity to as low as 10%. This equipment allows for up to 16 gallons of water to be removed from the air each day. Years ago, simple dehumidifiers could only achieve 40%.  Innovations in technology over time have allowed for significant improvements in drying time and prevention of mold.
  • Rescue mat extraction equipment are far more effective and efficient in lowering humidity than vacuum units. Rescue mat systems can efficiently mitigate water from a number of flooring materials, leaving the subfloors and pads slightly moist but not wet. It saves time, and therefore money.

Antimicrobial Application

In some water damage situations, fungal and mold growth may be a concern. Under the right circumstances, it can take as little as 24 hours for mold to begin growing, so a restoration company may apply commercial antimicrobials to prevent mold growth or destroy existing mold spores. 

Contents Management

In many cases, it is necessary to remove furniture and other contents from the area to minimize the loss of irreplaceable personal items and other possessions. Though any type of property damage has the potential to ruin certain belongings, contents restoration technologies have advanced to a point today where many items are also salvageable. The restoration company will remove savable contents such as textiles, clothes, hard goods, photos, electronics and more, and store them off site to restore.

All belongings will be cleaned thoroughly, inventoried and further analyzed for damage. Crossroads has the ability to restore valuable art, family photos, electronics, and nearly anything of sentimental or monetary value.

Special Situations

After a tragedy, the biohazard technicians will carefully and compassionately remove hazardous contamination including chemicals, blood, and other bodily fluids and do any necessary repair work to restore your property back to its previous state.

Asbestos contamination requires that special procedures are followed to contain or remove the materials compliant with local and federal laws and regulations.   While the use of asbestos-containing materials has significantly decreased since the 1980s, it may still be found in current projects. Asbestos typically doesn’t pose any threat as long as the asbestos-containing material is managed.
