Drying as a Science
Although simple in theory, there is actually a science behind the process of drying. When restoring a water-damaged structure to its preloss condition, it is essential to have knowledge of psychrometrics. That being, the study of various properties of air and methods of controlling its temperature and moisture content or humidity. We at SERVPRO are trained in the science of drying and follow strict industry-approved standards to help lower any chances of incurring secondary damage. Should your property sustain damage, our SERVPRO professionals will:
- Inspect the structure to identify every wet component to help prevent secondary damage from occurring
- Measure the amount of moisture in wet materials and monitor whether they are drying properly
- Place professional drying equipment to speed up drying and prevent further damage
With time, a wet building will dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. However, nature often takes too long, causing secondary damages as the property dries. It is the expertise of our professionals, the state-of-the-art equipment in place, and top-of-the-line technology that allows us to resolve water damage “Like it never even happened.”
