If insulation layers and/or composite materials have become wet, we use specific techniques and specific construction driers depending on the situation. Often floor constructions are flooded by water. In this case the water enters into the insulation layers and significantly changes their insulating properties. If this has happened we apply the vacuum method and use a vacuum system to suction the free water off via boreholes. At the same time we can clean the process air from microbial contamination by using suitable filter systems.
The overpressure method consists in blowing warm drying air into the floor construction via our drying unit after the vacuum method has been applied. This air absorbs the moisture which is bound in the material and thus dries the construction. Under special utilization conditions we also use both methods at the same time and save a lot of time.
We continuously check and document the drying process using moisture measurements – online, everywhere and at any place via telemetry. This saves costs and trips to the site and thus contributes to protecting the environment.
At the end of the drying process we perform additional moisture measurements (CM measurement) of all mineral materials and enter the values into the damage log. The boreholes can then be filled with mortar and the floor covering can be added.
