The Drying Process

7/8/2019 (Permalink)

Did you know, there is a science behind the process of drying? The knowledge of psychrometrics 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 damage is still occurring.

SERVPRO of Blount County has been trained to use top-of-the-line equipment to help speed up Mother Nature, including equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough-to-reach spaces inside walls, and much more. SERVPRO of Blount County also uses state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and a proven scientific process to help speed the drying of your home or business. What exactly does “speed up Mother Nature” mean? A wet building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are drenched, moisture will naturally move to drier air on the surface of the material but only if the air is, indeed dryer. The only problem is, nature takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is drying out.

To help with this process, SERVPRO of Blount County is proud to utilize a newly developed tool exclusive to SERVPRO called DryBook and DryBook Mobile. The SERVPRO DryBook is a proprietary tool allowing us to capture and track the steps of restoration project according to industry best practices and standards. This ensures your restoration is completed correctly and efficiently. It also improves results and restores your property at a faster rate, getting you back in your home or business sooner.
