Did you know there is actually a science behind the process of drying?  Having the knowledge of pyschrometrics is essential to restoring a water damaged structure to its preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Grand Traverse Area is trained in the sciene of drying and follow strict industry-approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages.  If you suffer from water damage our crews will:

  • Inspect the property to detect every component that is wet to help prevent secondary damage from happening.
  • Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.
  • Speed up Mother Nature by using professional drying equipment.

What exactly does it mean to help "speed up Mother Nature"?  A wet building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium.  When materials are wet, moisture will naturally move to drier air at the surface of the material-but only if the air is drier.  The only problem is, nature often takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is drying out.

SERVPRO of Grand Traverse Area has the tools and equipment to help Mother Nature along, including equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough-to-reach spaces inside walls, and much more.  We also use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and a proven scientific process to help speed the drying of your home or business.

It's not only the equipment but the technology too!  SERVPRO has developed DryBook™, a proprietary tool that provides real-time documentation and updates on the drying process and helps ensure industry drying requirements are met.

The bottom line?  SERVPRO of Grand Traverse Are has the professional training and equipment to help make water damage "Like it never even happened."
