Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Tying Up the Loose Ends

Once the standing water has been removed, it might seem like the hard part is over, but that's not always the case. Although the floors and walls may look dry, a closer inspection will reveal that they are still retaining moisture. This is because nearly all building materials, such as wood, drywall, and flooring, are porous and have the tendency to absorb and hold on to water.

That's why it's so important to address this retained water as soon as possible. If left untreated, it can lead to further damage, such as warping, break down, or even mold growth. But don't worry, that's where SERVPRO comes in! With our expertise and advanced drying techniques, we'll make sure your property is thoroughly dried and free of any potential water damage.

So, let's get to it! Trust SERVPRO to take care of all your water damage needs and keep your property safe, sound, and dry.

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

Drying Equipment

  • 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.
