The Science of Structural Drying

Psychrometrics and The Vortex Drying Method

As the science of structural drying has evolved, FIRESTORM CONSTRUCTION, LLC has learned how to be more effective and efficient in our applications of equipment and energies in order to reduce the moisture content inside any structure in the Dallas Metroplex.  The study of Psychrometry and its applications using the Vortex Drying Method has opened up our understanding of the interaction of moisture, air and building materials to the extent that we can work at manipulating the environment in such a way that it encourages the affected area to yield its moisture quickly and in many cases, with less intrusive means than has been utilized in the past.

In the past a trial and error approach had lead us to conclusions and approaches that were okay for the time, but we realize now that we were overlooking some areas, and focusing too much on others.  The traditional approach of tearing up the carpet pad in Category One (See Side Bar) water damage mitigations and floating the carpet to dry it down is a thing of the past.  Previously, the focus was on the carpet and carpet pad and not on the walls and structure, or an "inside out" approach to drying.  Now with the application of Vortex Drying, and because our focus is on the walls and structure (Outside) and we dry from the "outside in", the carpet and carpet pad (In) are one of the first building materials to dry in the Dallas structural drying process.

Simply stated, the science of structural drying is the application of Psychrometry and The Vortex Drying Method to any given Dallas water damage cleanup / mitigation to ascertain how best to bring the specific humidity of the ambient air inside the drying chamber down as quickly and efficiently as possible.  While also effectively reducing the moisture content levels in the structural and finished building materials and/or personal contents, using the most cost effective applications and technology. 


Drying Wet Building Materials

We are a Restoration Company.  Not a Demolition Company.

There are many media hyped myths about what you have to do with building materials that get saturated due to a water intrusion.  When it comes to any Dallas water damage cleanup /mitigation, it is our goal to get your structure dry as fast and as inexpensive as possible.  Most building materials can and will return to their original or stronger condition, if dried quickly and professionally.

Salvaging and drying as much of the wet affected building materials as possible will:

  1. Minimize the overall cost of the claim

  2. Minimizes loss of business interruption

  3. Minimizes the time the structure's occupants are inconvenienced

  4. Closes claims faster

  5. Increases client satisfaction


Drying Chambers: We Only Dry What Is Wet

Wet Always Goes to Dry...When It Can.

Setting up a "Drying Chamber" refers to the process of isolating the wet affected area of a structure, placing in the chamber ONLY the structural drying equipment it takes to dry, while manipulating the ambient temperature to maximize the efficiency of the dehumidifier to reduce the specific humidity and moisture content levels in the building materials in that area lower than the levels of the unaffected areas around the Drying Chamber. 

Simply stated, if the air inside the affected area is drier, the moisture inside the structure will have to come to it.  If we are drying a 2000 square foot house where only 800 square foot of the basement is wet, it makes sense to block off the wet area from the other 1200 square feet of living space that is dry.  It might be as simple as putting up plastic or closing a door, but by isolating the wet area you are able to place (within the Drying Chamber) the equipment it takes to dry only the wet 800 square feet, instead of 2000 square feet. 

Not only does this expedite the Dallas structural drying process, it reduces noise from the drying equipment if someone is still occupying the unaffected area of the structure.  And it also means less equipment, which in turn lowers the cost of the structural drying process and reduces the necessary energy consumption.
