Master Clean proudly introduces TES, The Worlds Fastest Drying System, to Northern Wyoming. TES is a unique, patent-pending water damage restoration system that utilizes Direct Heat Drying and the "Reets Evaporation Method" combining controlled heat and air flow to produce high-speed evaporation, dramatically improving the drying process for the fastest drying ever! Designed for all applications of water damage, it allows restorers to rescue wet building materials before permanent damage is caused. Master Clean is certified in applying this Thermal Energy System (TES) in every situation, from saturated carpet and sheetrock to muddy crawl spaces and cupped hardwood floors. Our Master Clean technicians will perform an extensive inspection of your home or building with our stateof-the-art Thermal Imaging Cameras, to narrow down the source of the damage and to create a scope of work So while other restoration contractors are gutting the interior of your home, causing weeks if not months of down time and outrageous expenses, Master Clean has you back to normal with only a fraction of the repairs and costs of the other guys.
The Master Clean Difference.
At Master Clean we understand to be successful and lead the market as a contractor we have to be different and better. But what makes us different? After all, we have vans, our competitors have vans. We have air movers, our competitors have air movers. We have dehumidifiers, our competitors have dehumidifiers. BUT WE HAVE TES, and our competitors only have vans, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Without TES, restoration contractors are prolonging the remediation process, increasing expenses, damages, and down time. TES allows us to dry water damaged structures twice as fast as our competitors, which makes us the most resourceful and powerful restoration company in town.
THE DRAMATIC BENEFITS OF DIRECTED HEAT DRYING.
Faster Drying Reduces Cost
There are two phases to restoring any water loss; mitigation and reconstruction (remove and replace or repair). Mitigating a water loss costs a fraction of the cost of replacing expensive structural materials like carpet, walls, insulation, flooring, cabinets, etc. A loss that is not mitigated quickly will result in a huge increase in the cost to restore the property to a pre-loss condition.
Faster Drying Prevents Secondary Damage
If not mitigated quickly and thoroughly, water losses will continue to get worse, a condition known as secondary damage. The most important secondary damage is mold growth with its attendant health hazards and increased liability for property owners.
Other secondary damage includes swelling of wood structural materials, warping and cupping of hardwood floors, damage to other materials and contents as they are continuously exposed to moisture.
And, in gray and black water floods a whole host of disease causing viruses, bacteria and protozoa can flourish and cause very serious illnesses.
Faster Drying Means Happier Policyholders
A loss is a traumatic and often a once in a lifetime event. It is highly disruptive and results in a wide variety of negative experiences and emotions. Whether the insured is a home owner or a business owner, everyone wants to get life back to normal as quickly as possible.
A water loss can be devastating to busy homeowners, and businesses may be losing thousands of dollars per day in lost revenues.
The faster a loss is restored, the faster the homeowner or business is back to normal; furthermore, the faster you get life back to normal, the happier they'll be with your services!
Faster Drying Closes Claims Files Faster
Overloaded adjusters want to close claim files as fast as possible. By drying faster, less replacement is required, (replacement which can prolong the job for days, weeks and even months!) By drying faster, policyholders are back to normal in the shortest possible time and claim files are closed!
A New Understanding of Drying Science.
Water exists in three different phases- solid, liquid, & vapor. Energy (heat) and air flow applied directly to water (liquid) will speed the phase change to a vapor rapidly evaporating the moisture.
You have experienced this all your life. For example, when you step out of the shower in a steamy bathroom with condensation on all surfaces including the mirror, attempting to wipe the mirror down with a dry towel provides a temporary solution. Due to the high level of humidity still present in the atmosphere the moisture continues to accumulate on the surfaces. However if you were to direct a blow dryer at the mirror it instantly dissipates. The energy from the heat of the blow dryer raises the pressure of the water molecules allowing the molecules to transform from a liquid to a vapor.
Another simple example would be a pot of water on a hot stove vs. a pot of water on a cold stove. Sure the cold pot of water will eventually evaporate, but it will takes days if not weeks. The hot pot of water however, will obviously only take minutes, which is a fraction of the time of the cold pot. Although the application of heat while drying a wet structure is not as simple as the listed two examples, the general characteristics justify how much faster evaporation occurs while directly applying heat.
How It Works.
Evaporation is the key to drying wet homes or buildings. Master Clean knows from proven studies that up to 97% of the water can be removed by a thorough extraction, leaving a stubborn 3% to be removed by drying equipment. Most restoration contractors report on average 3-5 day dry times using conventional drying methods such as air movement and dehumidification, rapidly increasing expenses and repairs. At Master Clean that is entirely unacceptable. Using TES we report 1-2 day averages on drying times and minor repairs if any at all, eliminating a massive mitigation other contractors commonly instigate. After the extraction of primary 97% of water we continue by strategically placing our Heat Exchangers in the designated positioned determined earlier on by the initial inspection. We then calculate the cubic feet of each area, and the amount of moisture currently present in the air to determining the amount and position of high velocity professional air exchangers (Dryers.) Because we raise the indoor temperature dramatically, we eliminate the need for dehumidifiers, but we still need to remove the moisture from the air somehow. Therefore we determine a safe and secure place for evacuating the saturated air, normally out a window, using a specially designed moisture withdraw system (Evac-system). The Evac System combines a ducting tube, a temperature controller, and a air exchanger. Based off our calculations and the application of the "Reets Drying Method" we determine the proper settings for the Evac system, as far as the differential we need to maintain the proper temperature for the highest rate of evaporation. With consistent Monitoring and adjustments we are only hours away from being "Desert Dry in Record Time."
Thermal Imaging Inspections.
Our Master Clean technicians will perform an extensive inspection of your home or building with our state-of-the-art Thermal Imaging Cameras, to narrow down the source of the water (if undetermined) and to evaluate the extent of the damage. This technology allows us to visually see the path in which the water took and any hidden cavities of water behind walls or other difficult spaces most commonly missed by other restoration contractors.
Thermal Imaging vs. Traditional Inspections
Thermal Imaging allows us to detect moisture presence in area's most restoration contractors fail to locate. Traditional inspections performed by other Gillette and Sheridan Restoration Contractors are based off of suspicion and normally require extensive investigation, prolonging the process while damages may still be occurring. Most commonly abrasive, tradition inspections are inaccurate and often timely. When time is critical with water damage it is crucial a thorough inspection be implemented with accurate results, guaranteeing nothing is overlooked-Thermal Imaging does just that. Allowing us to visually see the extent of the damage through the digital camera screen, gives us insight on the direction in which to go. So while other contractors would be mapping out a scope of effected areas, Master Clean is already attending to the damage correcting the problems and mitigating the restoration, saving you time and money.
Common Drying Applications.
Drying Carpet Carpet is normally dried in place, and is most commonly done so by simply lifting a corner of the carpet and pad an placing a heat exchange underneath thus creating a float in the carpet. By applying this float technique, the heat is directed to the carpet, the pad, the subfloor, and even the walls. Applying the heat to that combination increases efficiency and alleviates down time.
Drying Hardwood Floors Using plastic sheeting and our specially designed sandbags, we are able to construct a tent over the affected area and apply the heat directly to the moisture. Focusing the heat to the problem areas, allows us to salvage hardwood floors, a feat restorers, agents, and adjusters never thought possible 10 years ago. Pairing our TES system with other equipment designed for hardwood floors, such as Rescue Mats, our success rate is unmatched by any other restorer in town.
Drying Walls & Substrates Drying wet wall assemblies and insulation without removing drywall is made simpler than ever with TES. We begin by removing the baseboard in the affected areas, drill small holes between the framing of the walls, and force dry heated air into the cavities. We use specialized forced-airsystems paired with TES to administer the heat to the wet areas. Forcing heated-dry air into the crevices drastically reduces drying times, repairs, and ultimately expenses.
As Simple as pointing and drying
With E-TES Smart Dry we are able to utilize our large inventory of traditional drying equipment with the powerful addition of Directed Heat Drying. E-TES SD is the electric version of the propane-fired full TES system, and is much more practical for smaller applications or specialty situations. Because all jobs will not require the large trailer mounted TES system, we have E-TES which is more versatile and applicable on nearly all jobs. We use E-TES on our more challenging job such as attics, crawl spaces, saturated concrete or stone, and much much more. Furnace failure? E-TES is also a great source of temporary heating.
