indoor water-damage dehumidifier drying guide

StayDrySydney

Sydney has copped a serious amount of rain today with flooding in many areas. It can be heartbreaking for anyone to wake up to some form of flooding, even smaller amounts of water damage in your home can really get you down. If you've experienced non-major water damage to floors, carpet or even in your car then we're happy to offer some handy tips to dry it right out.

IndoorWaterDamage DehumidifierDryingGuide

Indoor Water-Damage Dehumidifier Drying Guide

A quality dehumidifier is an excellent aid in actively removing moisture from a room (up to 50 litres per day). Dehumidifiers are especially great at drying deep, embedded moisture. For example, in addition to being excellent at drying carpets, if you have water-logged wooden floors or skirting boards, a dehumidifier can pull that moisture right out of the wood.

Here are some handy tips to dry those damp or water-logged areas most effectively with your dehumidifier.

Timing: Time can be of the essence in these situations, as mould can start to grow within 48 to 72 hours in moist or water-logged materials. So try to act as fast as possible, (while keeping safe).

Quick Tips:
1. Use towels to soak up any excess water. If the carpet is damp, then fold the towel over a few times and stand on it to draw the water up (preferably use a white towel as you don’t want the dye from a new coloured towel to 'bleed' into the carpet). Keep doing this until you can't get any more water out. You will be surprised even how dry the top of the carpet feels after doing this.

2. Place your dehumidifier into the room, close all windows and doors and turn the dehumidifier on to the lowest humidity setting (30% is preferable). If you have any fans, make sure to turn these on too. Air circulating in the room with the dehumidifier running will speed up the drying process.

3. Depending on the situation, it may take anywhere from 24 hours to a matter of days running your dehumidifier continuously to dry everything properly. (Remember to keep your doors and windows closed during this drying process.)

Important note: this guide is intended for minor water damage only, (not major flooding). If in doubt call a professional.

Ausclimate at the Environmental Health Conference/Expo 2018 Wrap Up

Expo-Wrap-Up-Comp-Image

With this years' ASBB Environmental Health Expo & Conference done and dusted, we wanted to reflect on just what a great event it was all-round.

Ausclimate's Pete Higgins was there for the full day and was extremely impressed. Ausclimate was proud to be an official exhibitor for the Expo, spreading the word about just how important high quality dehumidifiers and air purifiers can be to creating a healthy home. Pete had the following to say about the event:

"What a fantastic time we had at the Expo and Conference last Saturday. It was a great chance to catch-up with so many of our Building Biologist friends who provide such an outstanding and valuable service in helping people make their homes a healthier place.

Some very interesting talks from some outstanding speakers took place at the conference. Some highlights included Allergies and the House Microbiome/Mould and Electromagnetic Fields, Taming Your Toxic Load, Your Health and Your Home and many more. Nicole Bijlsma and Eco Health Solutions - Building Biology's Lucinda Curran were especially excellent!

We exhibited beside some other wonderfully eco and health friendly companies like The Natural Bedding Company, Livos Australia (non-toxic wood stains), EMR Australia and Hemp Gallery Australia. Just an amazing amount of other non-toxic and allergy-friendly products out there if you take the time to look! I recommend taking a look on the Chemical Free Community web directory - Jillian Exton does an excellent job. Thanks guys!"

Thanks Pete!

Thanks so much for having us ASBB! A great event indeed.

Ausclimate is a proud member of the Australasian Society of Building Biology. The ASBB continues Ausclimate’s mission of creating healthier indoor environments for Australians & their families’. A list of all current Practitioner Members of the ASBB Australia wide for both residential and commercial audits can be found on the ASBB official web-site

Another Sydney Home Show Wrapped Up

Costa-at-Sydney-Homeshow

Phew! All done after another big one at the Sydney Home Show over the weekend.

As always, it was wonderful to see so many happy faces, one of which was none other than ABC Gardening Australia's Costa Georgiadis posing here for a snap with Chris! A very nice 'furry' fellow indeed. 😉 That beard really is something to see in person!

As always, it was great to see many customers of years gone by, many of whom assured us that given the rainy weather, they had their Ausclimate dehumidifiers hard at work back home while they were at the show. We were also chuffed to hear that they've also been regularly checking & cleaning their filters! Great stuff!! It really was an excellent weekend all round. Thank you so much to everyone that stopped by - new & old friends alike.
