Some of the Biggest Conditions Inhibiting Quick Drying Efforts in Redding
What Can Affect Drying of Your Redding Home?
The science of drying out structures like your Redding home is known as psychrometry. This practice guides our SERVPRO water restoration professionals to the most direct paths of drying out saturated construction materials and contents. Depending on the specific needs of your home, these guiding principles can help to maximize our moisture removal efforts through the manipulation of elements like temperature, humidity, and airflow.
The better grasp our technicians have on environmental conditions, the better able to address water damage in Redding homes they become. Our team can record initial conditions in our DryBook software during the scoping of the job before the work begins, so we have a point of reference for the steps we can take to thoroughly dry and restore saturated materials and contents. There are several environmental conditions that we can modify to suit the efficient drying your home requires.
As you might suspect, lower temperatures can slow the drying process to a crawl. Our SERVPRO team can manipulate cooler environments using portable electric heaters for direct exposure and larger furnace units for broader area warmth. Raising the temperature of the drying zone can speed up the moisture removal process.
Many water loss incidents leave the immediate atmospheric conditions saturated and construction materials and contents in the area. Higher humidity contents can make it challenging to dry materials. That is why we run dehumidification units throughout the drying process in most cases.
Regulating air flow into a drying zone can help remove saturated air from this immediate region and replace it with a drier blast of the heated exhaust. A valuable tool for pulling moist air from a damaged region and replacing it with warmer, drier air is our desiccant dehumidifier.
Many factors affect the speed with which drying processes occur in your damaged house. Our training and education in psychrometry help to maximize our efficiency in your home.
