Yes. DryMaster Restoration uses the best equipment available. Our employees will quickly determine the type of equipment needed to dry the materials as quickly as they can safely be dried. We use directed heat drying. Specialty equipment is used to direct heat to the affected area whenever possible. Heat, along with air movement and removal of moisture laden air through the de-humidification or exhausting to the outside will result in:
> Faster drying
> Less expense
> Less inconvenience for the homeowners or occupant.
Our goal is to maximize evaporation of trapped moisture from structural materials using direct heat and other equipment.
