Repair measures taken by experts
Following water infiltration, the SERVPRO crews help identify the source of moisture and take measures to prevent further intrusion. We conduct an assessment and document all damaged areas, including building materials and furnishings. We can determine the best way to repair the damage by thoroughly assessing the situation. Also, we are keen to identify moisture under cabinets and other furnishings.
Drying a structure and its contents involves dehumidifiers and air movers to remove moisture from your home walls, floors, and hidden spaces. Air movers circulate large volumes of air, ensuring evaporation is much faster. Dehumidifiers remove moist, humid air from the structure to the unit and discharge dry, warm air from the unit back to the affected areas. Dry air acts as a sponge absorbing moisture from wet materials. Therefore, moisture-deficient air exhausted from the dehumidifier is blown back into the room.
Factors affecting the usage of a dehumidifier
- The extent of damage
- Level of humidity
