Wall and Floor Drying System


The Drymatic Wall and Floor System is a patented system that dramatically improves drying rates compared with conventional methods.

Half the drying time...

Because the mat concentrates the air where it is needed the drying effect is doubled. The drying time for a saturated surface down to 70% ERH can be halved compared to previous methods and be even faster if you use the mats to apply controlled heat via the Drymatic Boost system. The combination of target and controlled heat drying enables the user to increase job throughput using one standard Drymatic System - Drymatic, Drymatic Boost and the Drymatic Wall and Floor System.

• Reduce drying times

Insurance Claims

If you have experienced a water, fire or accidental damage at home or business premises that is covered by your insurance policy, you should inform your insurer as soon as possible. They can then contact us and make arrangements for our cleaning and restoration specialists to attend to the problem. By contacting your insurance company, you get the same great service from Chem-Dry, and we sort out all the administration and billing direct with your insurer.



Water Damage

Following the shock and disruption caused by major water damage or flooding, a fast and effective response is required to minimise loss. Our fully trained staff at I&S Chem-Dry, can swiftly assist with water extraction, sanitation and the initial clean up.

If the building requires a drying regime, the structure/age of the property, and the extent of water damage will determine the type of drying equipment we will need to install to ensure the building is returned to its pre-loss condition.

This equipment could be a mixture of the examples show. Following the completion of the drying programme a drying certificate will be issued. This is a requirement on all insurance claims. If it is required, we can undertake any removal or storage of your contents to facilitate the building restoration.

Regular monitoring using moisture meters and/or hygrometers will provide you with a record of the drying progress. It is extremly difficult to estimate the length of time a drying regime may take. Many factors have to be taken into account. For example, the lenght of time the building was submerged or the type of structural material used.

We can undertake any of the above privately, or through an Insurance Company.

We also hire De-Humidifiers and Air Movers on a daily basis, or as a monitored service.
