Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Once the water has been extracted, the next critical step is to dry the materials in your home or business. This is done by setting up a drying system, monitoring materials, and monitoring the water in the atmosphere through a fancy process called psychometrics. Psychometrics is just a big word that refers to the measuring of relative humidity, absolute humidity, and temperature to ensure proper drying conditions are met.
To make certain that proper drying conditions are met, we will use air movers and dehumidifiers to ensure that water damage is properly handled. We will ten use moisture meters and other various monitoring equipment to track the progress of drying the water damage. We will thoroughly check floors and walls to make sure no water has spread or can cause secondary damage.
Regardless of what materials are wet, SERVPRO of Chaska/Chanhassen has the proper tools and equipment to appropriately dry water damage. At our 19,000 square foot facility, we have over 400 air movers and 85 commercial grade dehumidifiers. In addition, we have specialty drying equipment like a magnificent wood floor rescue mat system that allows us to dry hardwood floor so that we don’t have to rip it up and replace it.
For any of your drying questions, concerns, or needs, call SERVPRO of Chaska/Chanhassen at 952-999-2435!
Drying / Dehumidification
Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
- Use Dehumidification Equipment
- Use Monitoring Equipment to Track Progress
Monitor Floor and Walls
We check the moisture levels to monitor the drying process.
- Monitor Floors
- Monitor Walls
- Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
- High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
