The Challenges

High winds and rain from a summer storm damaged the roof of an office building, allowing rain water to soak multiple floors of a suburban Chicago office. Once restoration contractors responded and gauged the extent of the damage, DRYCO was called to deliver a large rental desiccant dehumidifier, rather than attempt to employ dozens of smaller pieces of drying equipment. The desiccant unit was placed near an entry point of the building, with temporary ducting used inside to distribute a positive pressure of dry air inside the building. The restoration company placed their own air movers throughout the floors and hallways to aid in the drying process.
