The Science of Drying

2/1/2018 (Permalink)

Did you know there is actually a science behind the process of drying? The knowledge of psychometrics is essential to restoring a water damaged structure to its preloss condition. SERVPRO of Rolla technicians are all certified in water, so what that being said they know the science behind the process of drying. If your property or business suffers a water damage, SERVPRO of Rolla will...

Here is some helpful tips and some facts about drying...

*Inspect the building/structure to detect every component that is wet, to help prevent secondary damage from happening.

* Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.

* Speed up Mother Nature by using professional drying equipment.

You ask what does, "speed up Mother Nature" mean? A wet building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, moisture will naturally move to drier air at the surface of the material-but only if the air is, indeed, drier. The only problem is, nature often takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is drying out. For this reason, SERVPRO has been trained to use top-of-the-line equipment to help Mother Nature along, including equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough-to-reach spaces inside walls, and much more.
