How We Dry Your Home After a Water Damage
If your home floods, leaks, or has some other kind of water damage, it can be very stressful. After all, your goal is to return your home to normal as quickly as possible. Fortunately, as your local disaster restoration company, SERVPRO of Catawba County East is here 24/7 to make any disaster “Like it never even happened!”
When our team first arrives at your home, their first task is to assess the damage and determine what course of action they need to take. In many cases, there is standing water that needs to be immediately addressed. Using either a truck-mounted or a portable extractor, we will suck up and remove as much water from your home as possible.
Assessing the Damage
After all standing water has been removed, our technicians will assess the moisture levels using a moisture meter—a tool that offers a reading of an object’s relative moisture level. This reading will be the base number our technicians work with so they can determine when your home has been adequately dried.
Drying Your Home
The last phase of the mitigation process is drying out the moisture remaining in the affected areas. To do this, we deploy both air movers and dehumidifiers. The air movers speed up the evaporation process and move moisture away from the area, but the dehumidifier draws the moisture out of the air so materials can dry and mitigate the risk of mold growth. Our technicians collect moisture meter readings daily, and then they remove the drying equipment when the target goal has been met.
Peace of Mind
Our drying process is designed to be quick and effective so you can have your home back as quickly as possible. If you have water damage and want professionals to make it “Like it never even happened,” call SERVPRO of Catawba County East at (828) 465-6504!
