SERVPRO’s Drying Techniques for Your Newington Home

A roof leak or flash flood can readily spread water around your Newington property but removing it takes considerable effort. Extracting the spilled water and drying wet materials are two challenging tasks to restore your property to its preloss state. Faster and more thorough drying is one of the reasons to engage a professional water damage repair service like SERVPRO.

Since drying is one of the finishing processes for water damage repair in Newington properties, you might trivialize it more than other processes. However, leaving unnecessary moisture traces can complicate an incident causing severe deterioration. SERVPRO crews closely manage the restoration and are attentive to the drying process.

Steps that ensure a property is thoroughly dried

  • Sufficient extraction
  • Sustained evaporation
  • Balanced humidity control

Water has unique characteristics that make it harder to remove from a property. First, it turns into humidity as temperatures change. Secondly, many materials readily absorb it, so significant volumes released into your property may seem to disappear after some time. However, the absorbed water only complicates the problem since it triggers damage to materials and makes drying more challenging. 

How Different Processes Improve Drying

Improved extraction procedures remove a higher percentage of moisture from materials minimizing the work necessary for the other processes. If you are wondering how much difference is involved, estimates put physical water extraction at 1200 times more efficient than dehumidification. That is why SERVPRO invests in sophisticated vacuum extractors to minimize the time we take to dry your home. 

Despite the efficiency extraction offers, the final water remnants in structural wood, fabrics, and upholstery require evaporation for efficient drying. Evaporation is a relative process that depends on the temperature and movement of the surrounding air. Improving temperature and air currents boosts evaporation rates, thus enhancing drying. Our SERVPRO crews use different devices to manipulate these conditions for sustained evaporation.
