WATER DAMAGE: THE SCIENCE OF DRYING
The Science of Drying
When faced with water damage, we might instinctively reach for towels to dry the wet. We might add fans to aid the process. However, there is actually a science to the drying process. The knowledge of psychometrics, the dynamics of moist air, is critical to lower the chances of secondary damages. Your IICRC certified and trained technicians at SERVPRO of Downtown Long Beach/Signal Hill know the steps to take when your business or residence experiences water damage:
- First, we’ll conduct an inspection to detect what material(s) are wet
- Next, we’ll measure how much moisture is in those wet components and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.
- Additionally, we’ll "speed up" the process by using professional drying equipment. While a wet building can often dry naturally, it might do so unevenly, inadequately, or might take too long…all allowing for secondary damages to occur.
SERVPRO of Downtown Long Beach/Signal Hill has the knowledge, advanced equipment, and the technology, DryBook (a proprietary tool that provides real-time documentation, updates on the drying process, and confirms industry drying requirements are met) to ensure that your water damage is mitigated. We’ll make it “Like it never even happened.”
