College Gymnasium Damaged by Storm
Large Desiccant Dehumidifier in use by SERVPRO of Ocala
SERVPRO of Ocala responded to a large storm damage when water poured in through the roof of this college gym. This size and type of water damage called for a trailer mounted Desiccant Dehumidifier.
Desiccants are commonly used to dry dense materials (hardwood floors, plaster and lath walls, etc.) due to the large vapor pressure differentials they can create between the surface and the air. Desiccants excel at large loss drying, because they can be made in virtually any size.
Large desiccants are often self-contained dehumidification systems, utilizing onboard generators and running on propane or diesel fuel.( as shown in photo) When large catastrophic events occur, such as hurricanes, large desiccants can provide a means of dehumidification when little or no power is available.
