Water and moisture can be removed from wet walls to help prevent expensive mold and structural damage.
Northeast Power Dry uses specialized equipment to dry building materials after standing water has been removed. Many building materials are porous and retain water, causing swelling, warping and mold damage. We will safely and effectively dry walls, carpets, hardwood flooring, kitchen cabinets and other building materials in your home that might still be wet after flooding or water damage.
Homeowners who experience even a small amount of water seeping into their homes either from flooding or a broken pipe should be concerned about mold.

During any water emergency, water naturally can seep into your carpet, carpet padding and subfloors. One of the most carpet damage problems caused by water and moisture is carpet delamination. Moisture can weaken the glue and cause the secondary backing to separate from the primary backing, causing the carpet to wrinkle or pucker. Flooding and water damage can also lead to harmful mold growth on and under carpets. To help prevent these problems, we have powerful vacuums and pumps to extract water from the carpet and padding. We then use dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture and speed up drying time. Finally, we use a powerful steam cleaner to sanitize and deodorize.
Drying hardwood floors that have been damaged by water requires special knowledge. Water damage or too much moisture can cause hardwood floors to cup. Cupping is when the sides of the wood floor swell, creating an uneven surface. Mold can also grow between floorboards and in the subfloor. Wood floors can typically be saved with proper water removal and drying. Improper drying techniques can cause a wood floor to crack and using the wrong equipment can leave scratches or damage the finish, adding to the cost of the restoration. Our technicians are highly-trained and use state-of-the-art equipment to safely dry your hardwood flooring and subflooring.
Cabinets made from plywood or particle board are likely to swell and crack when exposed to water or moisture and often need to be replaced. Whether you have hardwood or plywood cabinets, Northeast Power Dry can inspect the water damage and determine if it's worth drying the cabinets. We use special air movers and drying systems that allow us to safely dry hard-to-reach areas, such as behind cabinets. Our technicians take every step necessary to make sure that you're cabinets are protected from further damage.
Water damage caused by flooding or burst pipes can result in trapped moisture within wall cavities. This moisture can cause mildew and mold growth, as well as compromise the structural integrity. Different wall materials require different drying techniques. Our technicians are trained and experienced in a wide range of wall drying solutions and can determine the best option for your situation.
The goal of structural drying is to restore your property as quickly as possible using the most effective techniques to prevent further repair costs. Structural drying includes using air movers and dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture and prevent wood rot and mold following water damage. Our technicians are trained in the latest structural drying techniques and equipment, such as in-place drying systems, to help ensure that your property can be restored to pre-water damage condition.
