Direct Heat Drying - A New & Faster Way to Dry!
TES stands for Thermal Energy System and represents a practical way to implement a new understanding
of the Science of Drying that wll allow restorers to dry awet structures at least twice as fast as ever before! TES
will completely dry Class 1 and 2 water damamge involving uo to 1500 sq. ft. in 30 hours or less! Class 3 and 4 damage will
take longer to dry but will still dry dramatically faster than conventional drying systems.
How It Works
Imagine a pot of water sitting on a stove. Our goal is to "dry out" the pot.
Traditional drying methods tell us that we need to increase airflow across the pot, set uo some dehumidifiers to start
depressing the grain load in the room and WAIT for the water to be evaporated.
you could turn on the burner under the pot! Which do you think will dry faster?
There is no waiting with TES. In fact, TES dries water damage two to three times faster.
A New Understanding
The more energy/ heat that can be transferred
directly to the water, the more vapor pressure will build in the water. As the vapor pressure in the heated water builds,
it rockets past the vapor pressure of the ambient air; the greater the separation of the vapor pressures in the water and
air, the faster the water will turn into vapor (humidity).
The Dramatic Benefits of Heat Drying
- Faster Drying Reduces Cost
There are two phases to restoring any water damage; mitigation and reconstruction (remove and repair). Mitigating
water damage costs a fraction of the cost of replacing expensive structural materials like carpet, walls, insulation, flooring,cabinets,
Damage that is not mitgated quickly will result in huge increase in the cost to restore the property to a pre-loss
- Faster Drying Prevents Secondary Damage
If not mitigated quickly and thoroughly, water losses will continue to get worse, a condition known as secondary
damage. The most important secondary damage is mold growth with its attendant health hazards and increased liability
for property owners.
Other secondary damage
includes swelling of wood structural materials, warping and cupping of hardwood floors, damage to other materials and contents
as they are continuously exposed to moisture. And, in gray and black water floods a whole host of disease causing viruses,
bacteria and protozoa can flourish and cause very serious illness.
- Closes Claims Files Faster
Overloaded adjussters want to close claim files as fast as possible. By drying faster, less replacement
is required, (replacement can prolong the job for days, weeks, and even months!). By drying faster, policyholders are
bac to normal in the shortest possible time and claim files are closed!
