What is Applied Structural Drying?

Structural Drying after Flooding - ProCare RestorationCall ProCare Restoration Services to take advantage of the most advance techniques to mitigate water and flood damage. We are certified in Applied Structural Drying (ASD). ASD is a strategy for drying building materials that promotes decision-making based on real data. More specifically, ASD incorporates psychrometry-“the science of drying”-to track moisture content, drying progress, and verify job completion.

In most cases, this method uses more equipment to dry a structure faster while reducing the costs, time, and inconvenience related to replacements and repairs. ProCare Restoration’s structural drying strategies are based on the solid foundation of proven drying principles.

  • We provide verifiable documentation and data to help close the claim for good.

Structural Drying Techniques for Water Damage Restoration

What is “in-place drying”?

Structural Drying lays the foundation for In-Place Drying. On a Category 1 “clean” water loss, the carpet, pad and contents can be dried “in-place” with minimal disturbance.

Advantages of In-place Drying:

  • Saves money by drying the carpet, pad, subfloors, etc. “in-place” instead of paying for replacement.
  • Returns our clients to their home sooner.
  • Closes claims faster. We provide documentation and data that measures drying progress, confirms job completion and closes the claim for good.
  • Reduces the risk of mold growth when done properly. This is supported by the Structural Drying records!
