Dehumidification After Water Damage Cleanup

2/2/2016 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Technician Measuring Humidity Things look dry long before they are safely dry.

Removing water isn’t enough. After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.

Need To Get Rid Of Moisture? Call Us Today – (860) 216-2785

SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield will manipulate temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. We use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water and other moisture retained by building materials. Our professionals will carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials in your home or business return to acceptable drying goals.

Drying Takes Time
SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield can dry your carpets in 24 hours. Moderately wet drywall dries in 1-3 days. Other materials like hardwood flooring, plaster, concrete, and wood may require 7-10 days to dry.  Contractors and claims professionals that promise to dry buildings in three days are ignoring basic scientific principles.
Structural drying is a scientific process that requires professional water damage training and the use of specialized instruments.  Your property’s damage is very site-specific. One solution does not fit all cases. SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield water damage technicians are highly trained in psychrometrics, the science of drying, and always use IICRC S500 industry standards for professional water damage restoration.
