SERVPRO has the tools to restore your water damaged home. Call us today!

Our SERVPRO Team has Powerful Tools and Equipment to Manage Specific Facets of the Drying Sciences to Restore Your Water-Damaged Property 

Drying your Charlotte home is often more complicated than addressing surface water alone. While many property owners consider water restoration to be little more than sopping up pooling water on the floor of your house, there are often several more steps then mopping and towel drying. With as fast as water can migrate throughout the property, structural cavities and expose materials often absorb a portion of the damage, requiring more complex and involved drying solutions.   

With experienced technicians on our roster with water restoration accreditations through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), we have professionals available to restore water damage in Charlotte's homes at any time of the day. Part of the experience of these professionals and their extensive training involves understanding the three primary elements of drying. These main branches of drying science include: 

  • Humidity
  • Temperature
  • Airflow 

How Can You Regulate Humidity?  

Higher humidity levels can slow the drying process, ultimately keep customers from their homes longer and make water damage restoration cost more money. Desiccant dehumidifiers can pull moisture from the environment and replace it with a dryer exhausted air from the unit. 

What Temperature is Best for Drying?  

Warmth is always a desirable factor when it comes to drying construction materials and contents in a water damaged home. To achieve this, our professionals utilized portable electric heaters within the drying zone to increase the temperature and its evaporative properties. 

What Tools Work Best for Moving Air Through a Drying Zone?  

Airflow is an essential factor when it comes to drying out more substantial areas of the structure. After establishing a drying zone, tools like air movers can force heated air throughout this affected region to expedite evaporation.
