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.

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.

Of all of the uses for a Dehumidifier, guitars might not be the first on your list, but you may be surprised. We've had quite a bit of interest for our Dehumidifiers from the guitar community of late, looking to protect their pride & joy.

Luke Kallquist of Kallquist Guitars in Indooroopilly, QLD is a traditional Guitar Maker & "Luthier" & is very passionate about the craft. Luke uses his Ausclimate Dehumidifier in the manufacture & followup protection & upkeep of his top-quality guitars.

"Just wanted to say what a great asset to my workshop the Ausclimate NWT medium Dehumidifier is! I am a Luthier and need to keep the workshop at a steady 40-50% RH to be able to keep the timber at it's most stable and to give the finished instruments the best chance at survival once out in the real world and it's fluctuating RH. Thank you to Russell and the Team for all the expertise, I would highly recommend Ausclimate and it's Products to anyone. Thanks again, Happy Pickin"

Boiling one day, buckets of rain the next!

Erina Crazy Summer

See us in-person:

15th to 28th of Feb – (Erina Fair Shopping Centre, Erina NSW)
15th to 21st of Feb – (Top Ryde City Shopping Centre, Sydney NSW)

Australia is certainly experiencing a crazy summer - boiling summer heat one day, buckets of rain the next! (As you can see here today outside on-location at the Erina Fair Shopping Centre) During this time with these hot & clammy conditions we can really feel the humidity in our homes.

So here’s a timely reminder to get yourself ready for some serious home drying. Stop the mould, stop the dust-mites and protect your clothing, footwear, furnishings and other valuables. There is no better time than now to start up your Ausclimate Dehumidifier to keep everything dry, just remember a few of these moisture issues and maintenance tips:

  • Humidity: above 55%-60% means ideal conditions for mould & dust-mites
  • Do some serious structural drying: set the humidistat at 30% for ‘deep-down drying’ - run the Dehumidifier long enough to get those humidity levels really low!
  • Then make sure to do a follow-up 1-2 weeks later of drying at 30% to remove the surface dampness that accumulates
  • Keep the room/s closed up during the dehumidifying process Open up your wardrobes and cupboards to ensure everything dries out
  • Let the mattresses dry out too – (dust-mites can’t breed in a dry mattress)
  • AND don’t forget to keep your air filter clean too – it’s easy, just vacuum or run under water.

Survive this crazy summer, feel better & get a better night’s sleep; dry out your entire home now. There has never been a better time!

P.S. (Don’t forget your boat, caravan and storage areas, particularly before the winter weather arrives!)

We'll be at Erina till next Sunday with our full range of Dehumidifiers & Air-Purifiers. Come by & say hello!
