SERVPRO's Drying Equipment In Action To Dry Ceramic Tile

An overflowing wash machine caused this laundry room to flood.  The water migrated through the ceramic tile floor and into the den below.  

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County was called in to dry out the structure and do as little demo as possible.  We knew that it would be a challenge to dry out the ceramic tile floor, but with the proper equipment, we had a chance of success.  

This photo shows our heatable mat system and dehumidifier in place.  This equipment works by placing a standard air mover with the air blowing into a heater to warm up the air.  This heated air is then blown into an inflatable mat that has tiny holes on the bottom where the hot air can escape.  The hot air comes in contact with the ceramic tile heating it up while removing the moisture at the same time.  The average drying time for this type of work takes about 3 days, but this one took 4 days.  It was one extra day of drying but it prevented the entire floor from having to be removed and replaced, saving the insurance company a significant amount of money.
