What Is Structural Drying Exactly?

Structural drying involves eliminating excess moisture from building materials. The process usually includes physical extraction, evaporation, and dehumidification. Water that is pooled on surfaces or trapped in semi-porous material (like carpet) is physically extracted first. Next, air movement is used to evaporate moisture through blowers and fans. Lastly, water vapor in the air needs to be captured through dehumidification equipment.
