Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
One 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 and monitoring materials and the atmosphere through a process called psychometrics- a fancy word that refers to the measuring of relative humidity, absolute humidity and temperature to ensure proper drying conditions.
Regardless of what is wet, SERVPRO of Chaska/Chanhassen has the proper tools and equipment to properly dry it. At our 19,000 square foot headquarters we have over 400 air movers and 85 commercial class dehumidifiers. We also have specialty drying equipment like wood floor rescue mat systems to properly dry almost anything!
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.
