Wet plasters. How to speed up renovation works?
Construction and renovation works are not easy, particularly in autumn and winter when the weather is changeable. Low temperatures, rain and wind are not favourable conditions for building structures, and particularly for drying after construction works. The reason is that the basic ingredient of concrete, mortar, adhesives and paints is water. When the weather is unfavourable, the excess moisture in walls and floor slabs is hard to remove, making further works difficult. Then, in order not to delay the project and finish successive stages on time you need to heat and ventilate the rooms intensively so that the walls and ceilings can release the accumulated moisture.
Condensation dryers can ensure a quick drying of wet interiors as they very effectively eliminate any moisture and, in addition, can run at low ambient temperatures, even around 5 degrees Celsius. During the dryer operation, the air is cooled to dew point, that is point of condensation, and the precipitated water flows to the tank, and the dried air is blown back to the room. The dryers are a more effective and cost-effective method than heating and ventilation and prevents discoloration and wall cracking.
When using efficient air dryers make sure the rooms are tightly closed and isolate from any sources of humid air. Preferably, place a dryer in the middle of the room to extend the operation range, and if this is not possible, place it at least half a metre from the wall. In terms of capacity, it is hard to determine the time a dryer would take to dry all surfaces totally, as this depends on the model and the degree of moistness. However, usually it takes from a few hours to a few days.
