If not controlled by a professional, dramatic fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity can lead to issues like warping and accelerated deterioration. Temperature and humidity control help your building get back to peak performance after a poor building environment causes mold or destruction. Our team specializes in both commercial and residential temperature and humidity control.
Not all drying strategies are effective for all locations. When assessing your building, we factor in the location, weather, age, and structure to determine the best course of dehumidification, ensuring the right tools are brought in to get the job done. ATI has more than 30 years of experience in helping businesses restore their buildings to an ideal environment.
ATI’s professional dehumidification services may include an evaluation of the building’s moisture using moisture meters. Once the team has evaluated moisture levels, a customized dehumidification plan is established. The dehumidification process may include various tools during multiple phases, including negative air machines, industrial dehumidifiers, air movers, fans, etc. As the building dries, the team measures moisture to ensure a completely dry environment. Following dehumidification, the team works with you in implementing best practices that prevent moisture in the future.
If you notice issues like a musty odor, condensation inside windows, walls, and ceilings, or signs that parts of your structure may be warping such as new creaks in the floor, or a door frame that is swollen and making shutting a door tricky, your building may need temperature and humidity control to help address the problem.
This will depend on factors such as the severity of the problem and the environment surrounding the building. Humid parts of the country, like the Southeast or the Midwest, may take longer to have full results as compared to arid climates like those found in Colorado, Nevada, or Arizona.
Implementing temperature and humidity control protects the contents and the structure of your building. Humidity control means that items and documents will be less prone to mold, as will humidity-vulnerable spaces like bathrooms or kitchens. Temperature control helps ensure that the structure of your building remains stable, preventing warping of building materials like wood or drywall.
Dehumidification happens in phases that depend on the extent of the water damage in your building. First, if necessary, water extraction removes the bulk of the water from flooded areas. Once the water is removed from a facility, a custom plan is created by ATI to address the specific needs of the building. Various tools can be used depending on what is needed, such as industrial dehumidifiers, air movers, negative air machines, and more. Dehumidification is considered complete when test results show that the environment is completely dry according to the drying goals appropriate for the building and region.
