Flood is one of the most occurring natural disasters in the world. Torrential rain and floodwater can have disastrous effects on the building infrastructures as well as other infrastructure. Once the flood goes away people have to deal with other problems it leaves behind. Moisture and humidity are some of the challenges that need to be dealt with in the aftermath of a flood. They must be removed as instantly as possible to minimize their long-term effect.

What are the effects of the moisture left behind by the flood?

  • The humidity causes various damages to the structure before any balanced humidity can be obtained. 
  • The glues, laminates and other settings stuck together with adhesives can suffer considerably.
  • If the building structures are left wet for too long then fungus and mold start to develop.
  • Many valuable things are difficult to protect in a wet environment.
  • The cost of refurbishment and rebuilding becomes expensive.

Dehumidification is very important during floods

The buildings and their components are directly hampered by the flood. But the damage that occurs indirectly can be more significant before the establishment of balanced humidity which is not noticed in the beginning. During the flood water can seep through small spaces in various hidden spots and corners where it may be absorbed like a sponge. The things that suffer the most due to the presence of moisture are the laminates, glues, and glued-together items. when the humidity in the air is exceptionally high it helps the molds and fungi to flourish on the walls and ceilings. These developments can also be seen on various fixtures in the buildings. Leaving the building structure, ceilings, and walls wet for a long time is very dangerous. 

There are also instances when some structures, interior fittings, and building elements need quick drying to eliminate any kind of long-term damage while other materials and components may not need instant drying and require very slow and careful drying. Some materials may get damaged due to fast drying so they need slow and carefully controlled drying. This is the reason why controlled dehumidification is very important. Waiting for the buildings to dry naturally may simply be not enough.
