Most companies think that if they simply put equipment on a job, that it has to dry. While this is true that wet will always go to dry if it can, taking this approach may take a while. The VDS will completely dry structure...PERIOD. No matter what kind of damage it is: Black, Gray, or Clean; regardless of how much there is: Class 1,2,3, or 4 the system will be utilized on every drying job to completely dry the structure.
The fact is that most companies pull their equipment off the job with the structure still wet. Whether it is because of lack of training, or an inability to do the job correctly. These companies are jeopardizing the health of the homeowner and business. The reason we have a mold problem today is because most companies in our industry have a drying problem. Companies that employ the VDS have been trained to inspect all components of a structure to check for moisture, and have been educated in the best ways on how to dry them. Whether it is sheetrock, flooring, sub-floorig, plaster, structural wood or crawlspaces; when we pull our equipment off the job, it will be dry.
There is a lot of talk today about “rapidly drying” structures in the restoration industry...and for some great reasons. Companies are starting to wake up to the fact that we don’t have a “mold problem”, but rather a “drying problem”. The fact is, the faster a structure is completely dried, the better off both parties will be. By utilizing the Vortex Drying System (VDS) it should be possible to dry any structure within 72 hours. However, some material take in water slower than others, and release it slower as well.
