Did you know there is a science behind the process of drying?

Psychrometrics is the fancy word for the process of drying. It is essential to restoring a water-damaged structure to its preloss condition.

While your initial reaction may be to grab a few towels to mop up the mess and place a fan or two around the damaged area, the professionals at SERVPRO of East Erie and Warren Counties are trained in the science of drying. They follow strict industry approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages.

A wet structure 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.

That is where knowledge of psychrometrics can help to dry building materials faster and more thoroughly according to the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

If your home or business suffers water damage, our team at SERVPRO of East Erie and Warren Counties will:

  1. Inspect the structure to detect every component that is wet and assess how far the moisture has traveled to help prevent secondary damage and mold.
  2. We use powerful pumps and vacuums to remove most of the water.
  3. Vaporize the remaining moisture as quickly as possible.
  4. Remove vaporized air as quickly as possible.

The certified technicians at SERVPRO of East Erie and Warren Counties have the tools and equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough-to-reach spaces inside walls, and much more.
