Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Once the excess water has been removed, the floors and walls may appear dry, but a quick inspection will reveal they are wet to the touch. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore retain water. This retained water can cause the materials to break down, warp, or cause mold damage. SERVPRO of Erie and Warren Counties, PA are highly trained in water restoration for your Edinboro, Girard, Tidioute and surrounding areas residential home and commercial building. We strategically remove damaged walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, and more. After we remove the water infected surfaces, we use top of the line air movers and dehumidifiers to completely dry out all moisture in your home or commercial building. After everything is dried out, we can begin the reconstruction process. If you are in need of a company to restore your water damaged home or commercial building, call SERVPRO today at (814) 806-1987.
Drying / Dehumidification
Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
