The drying process

The PROsystem device works through all walls and overhangs in the given radius, except for large metal obstacles such as steel tanks, metal garage doors, and the like.

If the factors influencing the course of drying are favorable, changes to the object are possible and visible after a few days. The unpleasant smell of moisture and mold also disappears very quickly. However, in rare, extremely unfavorable conditions, the drying process can take longer, which depends on the percentage of water inside the walls, the thickness of the walls, the construction material, the water permeability of the soil, the temperature and humidity of the air and other factors.

During drying, the surface parts of the walls are first dried, then the drying penetrates deeper into the wall. When the surface parts of the walls begin to dry, then the damaged materials, paint and plaster from the walls begin to fall off and fall off, this is also one of the indicators of changes due to the drying
of the object.

The factors that affect the drying process of the building are as follows:
– the percentage of moisture inside the walls
– the thickness of the walls
– the type of building material, i.e. their porosity
– the architectural characteristics of the building
– the water permeability of the soil
– previous interventions on the building in terms of capillary moisture (cutting, injection)

Salts and nitrates that have been deposited for years after the evaporation of water in the walls and roofs can come to the surface if the porosity of the soil is not large enough, so they appear in the form of dry foam.

And if there was wet sticky saltpeter on the surface, it can become petrified after installing the system.

After the installation of PROsystem and the gradual disappearance of moisture from the walls, the material can be shed because the moisture does not bind it. And thicker parts of paint and plaster harden like an eggshell and break under pressure.

This is a consequence of delamination, which can occur while applying new plaster if it is not remedied beforehand (capillary moisture), especially with concrete plasters that do not allow water to evaporate during setting, so the applied materials begin to separate and delaminate in summer days. and also in winter due to liquid freezing (from capillary moisture) if the walls are exposed to cold temperatures below zero.

RECOMMENDATION: Company KAZ d.o.o. recommends that if you have decided to carry out construction work on your property, install the PROsystem system before the mentioned works, so that the salts and nitrates that have been deposited in the walls for years can flow back into the ground and so that they are not transferred to new materials.

Capillary damp constantly maintains the moisture level in the walls, and the new materials that are applied contain more concrete and are poorly vapor permeable. The mentioned materials themselves are wet when applied. Because of the moisture inside the wall, high steam pressures are created, which can be expected on summer days, because the walls are not completely dry and are poorly vapor permeable, so the moisture constantly evaporates inside the wall. This is why the material delaminates immediately after application.
