Professional Construction Drying Services

Here at Vinci Response, we provide various drying solutions for domestic and commercial clients, including construction drying.

New construction properties frequently experience moisture retention and water damage.

Whether that’s through flooding or seasonal weather changes, care must be taken with the overall moisture and humidity levels. If materials are saturated, it can impede construction work, costing you more money and time.

Find out below how Vinci Response can help with your construction drying needs.

Arrange Your Construction Drying In 3 Simple Steps

  1. Call us today to arrange a convenient date and time for one of our senior surveyors to conduct a free site survey.
  2. During the site survey, we’ll also produce a detailed proposal.
  3. Once the proposal is agreed upon and the necessary paperwork is completed, our technicians can commence cleaning.

For a free, no-obligation estimate and to arrange your construction drying site survey, call us on 03335 772 996.

Why is Construction Drying Important?

It is simple to understand how rain, snow, and frost could raise the moisture content of structures. Due to their high moisture retention, some building materials, like concrete, take a long time to dry out.

As mentioned above, leaving construction in a damp or saturated state can lead to several issues that lead to additional costs.

But in addition to preventing delays to your project, construction drying can also help prevent mould and fungus infestations.

Not only could this damage the structural integrity of the build, but it could also pose serious health risks for on-site workers.

Mould spores can cause respiratory issues for anyone who inhales them. It is really important, therefore, to use professional construction drying services.

How Do We Remove Excess Moisture?

One of the most common ways to remove moisture effectively and controllably from an area is to use a dehumidifier.

Dehumidification is the process of eliminating water vapour, or humidity, from the air.

Dehumidifiers can speed up the drying process for wet materials like plaster and concrete floors during construction.

Not only will this enable building work to move along more quickly, but it will also ensure that drying won’t promote cracking and deformation. Dehumidifier-dried concrete flooring will always settle to the right moisture level.

Dehumidification can be done by either chilling the air or by employing desiccants.

You can read more about the processes in our blog ‘Desiccant Dehumidifiers vs Refrigerant (Compressor) Dehumidifiers‘.

Construction Drying Using Refrigerant Dehumidification

In refrigerant dehumidification, the air is cooled below the dew point temperature using a refrigerant.

The dehumidifier’s coil surface is where airborne water vapour condenses and drains away.

In essence, condensation is how the machinery removes humidity. This is a typical example of an air conditioner that struggles to regulate the humidity at a building site.

Construction Drying Using Desiccant Crystals

Dehumidifiers with desiccant crystals work well on building sites.

They contain hygroscopic components that draw and retain moisture from the air that circulates through the machinery.

The moisture is subsequently released from the apparatus through an exhaust airstream. It is quite efficient to reduce the vapour pressure in an area by using desiccant dehumidification. The final product is arid air, which can dry even the most saturated materials.

Professional Construction Drying with Vinci Response

Once we have conducted a free site survey and you have approved for work to go ahead, our team will begin the process of installing a dehumidifier.

They will ensure all the correct health and safety precautions have been set in place before getting to work.

Our technicians will then closely monitor the temperature and humidity levels of the room to ensure a safe environment.

Once complete, you will be notified, and the necessary paperwork to confirm completion will be sent over.
