Top Down Drying
In the event of over wet carpets or flooded carpets from fresh water or grey water when sewerage is not a factor, top down drying can be used to recover excess moisture from carpets, hard floors and timbers.
Top down drying is a non-invasive method. Excess water is extracted using powerful extraction machines and tools to salvage moisture trapped deep inside carpets underlay and under timber flooring.
Professional drying machine are used to extract remaining moisture from the textiles. This can involve the use of professional low grain dehumidifiers, air movement machines such as blowers, air injection machines to add air flow to closed cavities such as wall cavities and under hard floor timber floors, Air filtering machines etc.
Top down drying is generally more convenient for the customer or residents inside the building. It does not require lifting carpets or hard flooring.
