Top-Down, Vortex Drying - The New Way to Dry, PRIME Restoration’s Way to Dry

For broken pipes, flooded basements, or storm damage, we begin the drying process as soon as possible. Quick and complete drying prevents mold and reduces the likelihood of further damage. We protect and/or clean your belongings instilling comfort and confidence that your home/business will be back to normal soon.  We monitor your home on a daily basis using moisture meters and FLIR cameras to determine moisture content readings.  Detailed psychrometric reports are taken each day, with data loggers electronically recording the drying process. Equipment is removed from affected areas as equilibrium moisture content (EMC) is reached.  The moisture content of water absorbent materials varies depending upon both relative humidity and temperature in the surrounding air.  When these materials are neither gaining nor losing moisture, the EMC has been reached.  PRIME determines this EMC by taking moisture content readings in unaffected areas of the building, both on interior and exterior walls.  It is important to note that drying/water damage is a progressive condition, drying times vary depending on the types of materials, quantity of water, degree of saturation, air flow volume and velocity, temperature.  Projects are handled in a discreet, professional manner.
