Tornados, hurricanes, tropical storms, tsunamis, floods, huge winter blizzards, nor’easters, all leave ongoing moisture problems in their wake.
After the severe weather event has passed, your problems are not necessarily over. One of the lasting consequences may be ongoing dampness, humidity and moisture as things slowly dry out and return to normal.
Your first order of business following severe weather is to extract as much water as possible from the area. Your next order of business is to support the drying out process as quickly as possible. Do not leave wet things in boxes or piles. Spread them out to dry. Pull up any wet carpet or flooring.
There are many ways to control moisture after extracting water following storms and flooding – the important thing is that you do it. You can:
- Open doors and windows to dry out your home once the bad weather has passed.
- Use fans and heaters to speed up the drying process.
- Use dehumidifiers to absorb moisture and lower humidity.
DampRid Moisture Absorber is one of your best friends in the war against moisture problems following severe weather or flooding. This non-electric dehumidifier absorbs excess moisture, which in turn can help dry out surfaces and materials like carpet, furniture, books, papers, clothing, flooring, wood, etc.
Unlike electric dehumidifiers, DampRid doesn’t require any power, which is often either lacking or unsafe after a major storm or flood, particularly if there is any standing water remaining. DampRid requires no maintenance. DampRid quickly and effectively absorbs excess moisture from the air following water intrusion. DampRid is your most effective weapon at preventing moisture problems and musty odors from excess humidity following bad weather and storms.
