SERVPRO of Mandarin Explains Drying and Dehumidification

The presence of excess water in your home can lead to various types of harm, ranging from distorted floors to stained paint, and the dampness can promote the growth of mold and mildew. The water damage may arise due to severe weather, obstructed gutters, leaky pipes, congested drains, or condensation in your plumbing or air conditioning systems. If you have encountered the unfortunate incident of water damage in your home, it is crucial to ensure that all the moisture has been effectively eradicated, allowing you and your loved ones to resume your routine without any safety concerns.

While you may want to try drying out your home on your own, in most cases, you’ll need the help of professionals who can use several tools and technologies to remove the maximum volume of water. Proper drying and dehumidification require several steps:

The first step is to use extraction equipment to pull as much moisture from your floors and walls as quickly as possible. This can take several forms, from absorbing, draining, pumping, and vacuuming. This will remove any of the standing water but will not do the whole job.

Once the bulk of the water has been removed, your restoration team should use room measurements, temperature and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of dehumidifiers to set up. The dehumidifiers will work to pull the moisture out of your walls and floors, and out of the air as well. This can help to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

During this process, your home will be monitored closely until the machines have done their job and the humidity levels are back to normal. This drying out process can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days, depending on the volume of water involved, as well as the general weather conditions in your area.

If not properly taken care of, excess moisture will lead to mold and structural damage.
