Dehumidification is a critical step in restoring a property after it has sustained water damage. ATI Restoration uses industrial-grade dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture from the air and surfaces. Our goal is to achieve optimal humidity levels to prevent mold growth and further damage.
ATI Restoration has extensive experience performing water damage mitigation for a host of commercial clients. We have remediated and restored a wide range of properties, including:
With unparalleled experience and top-of-the-line equipment, our dehumidification services enable commercial property owners, engineering heads, facilities directors, and other decision makers to feel confident that the property will be restored to its pre-loss condition—if not better—quickly and efficiently. ATI Restoration provides a 24-Hour Emergency Response from 60+ regional offices.
Floods, leaks, burst pipes, and other forms of water damage don’t happen according to anyone’s schedule. They occur suddenly and often cause significant disruption to operations.
Dehumidification must be performed promptly to limit losses from excess moisture, including structural damage and loss of contents and documents. In addition, mold is less likely to grow when the indoor environment has a lower relative humidity.
ATI Restoration springs into action right away when we receive reports of water damage. Our phones are answered 24/7/365, and we will dispatch a crew to your property as soon as possible. Technicians will inspect the damages and develop a plan for removing the water and dehumidifying the structure.
The responsiveness of the vendor in addressing the water damage is important, but commercial property owners and their teams need to be ready as well. ATI Restoration offers an Emergency Response Agreement (ERA) that allows clients to plan ahead and create a vendor relationship for all of their properties before a disaster hits.
ATI Restoration’s ERA is an optimal component in the disaster recovery plan for any business, facility, or institution. Whether your property is damaged by a tropical storm or hurricane or a plumbing accident, an ERA ensures that your water extraction, dehumidification, and restoration needs are met immediately.
Dehumidification is a cornerstone of mitigating and remediating commercial water damage. ATI Restoration offers commercial dehumidification services for businesses and facilities across a wide range of industries.
ATI Restoration is distinguished not only by the high quality of our work but by our intimate knowledge of the insurance claims process. 9 out of 10 insurance carriers recommend us because we are committed to providing accurate estimates upfront, working closely with the insurer, and doing everything possible to keep each project running smoothly.
Before dehumidifying the structure, our technicians will perform complete diagnostics. Water leak detection and moisture mapping allow us to identify the source of water damage and the areas affected. Once the extent and degree of damage is assessed, water removal and dehumidification can get underway.
Before dehumidification can begin, any standing water is first removed from the affected area using pumps, wet/dry vacuums, and other water extraction equipment. This initial step helps eliminate the most immediate and visible sources of excess moisture.
Dehumidifiers are then strategically positioned within the structure to lower the humidity levels. These machines work by drawing in moist air and passing it over cooling coils, causing the moisture to condense into water droplets. The collected water is then drained or removed from the dehumidifier, leaving behind drier air.
Throughout the dehumidification process, technicians monitor the humidity levels and adjust the dehumidifiers as needed to maintain the desired humidity range. The goal is to achieve and maintain an environment with relative humidity below 50%.
As the dehumidification process continues, the dry air produced by the dehumidifiers helps promote the evaporation of moisture from saturated materials like walls, ceilings, flooring, and furnishings. This accelerates the drying of these materials, reducing the risk of structural damage and mold growth.
Adequate air circulation is important during the dehumidification process to ensure that the dry air reaches all affected areas. This is often facilitated using fans or air movers.

Dehumidification is generally performed as part of comprehensive water damage restoration. Inspection of the commercial property will enable our team to fully evaluate the damage and provide an accurate cost estimate for the project as a whole.
The cost of commercial dehumidification depends on your exact needs. ATI Restoration will take into account multiple factors when determining the services necessary to bring the moisture levels inside the structure under control, remove excess water, and restore the property.
Contact ATI Restoration if your commercial property has been impacted by water losses. We pick up the phone 24/7/365 and will send a crew of experts to your business or facility right away to conduct a thorough assessment, scope out repairs, and estimate the cost using the industry’s most advanced software solutions.
A vendor relationship or ERA with ATI Restoration can also help manage costs in the event of a catastrophe. Call or fill out our convenient online form to inquire about these offerings.
Porous materials like drywall, insulation, carpets, and wood can retain moisture. Water intrusion can also cause moisture to build up in the air. These issues can result in secondary damage to the structure and its contents, encourage mold growth, and lead to other issues.
Dehumidification promotes complete drying of the structure following water damage. Experts at ATI Restoration have the training and experience to restore your property quickly, minimizing downtime, disruptions, and financial losses.
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.
Dehumidification times vary but typically range from 1-5 days. More time may be needed depending on the level of damage, environmental humidity levels, and whether the building requires extensive water extraction. The timeline can also depend on the building’s location and the season.
Contact your disaster recovery firm immediately to begin water extraction. The longer water sits, the more damage it will cause and the more likely you’ll experience excess moisture in your building long-term.
Yes, but it will depend on your building’s geographic location and whether the humidity in your building has access to the outside. Evaporation is possible if you are in a warm, dry climate and your building’s indoor air is easily conditioned by outside air via windows, doors and other openings. This method tends to be significantly longer, and not a very reliable, drying process.
