Science of Drying

8/18/2023 (Permalink)

Did you know there is actually a science behind the process of drying? Having the knowledge of psychrometrics is essential to restoring a water-damaged structure to its preloss condition. While your initial reaction may be to grab a few towels to mop up the mess and place a fan or two around the damaged area, SERVPRO is trained in the science of drying and follow strict industry-approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages. If your home or business suffers a water damage, your local SERVPRO team will:

• Inspect the building 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, indeed, drier. The only problem is, nature often takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is in the process of drying out. SERVPRO 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.

SERVPRO also uses state-oft he-art monitoring equipment and a proven scientific process to help speed up the drying of your home or business.
