The Science of Drying

Water Damage The Science of Drying Drying those tough-to-reach spaces with our brand new equipment.

Did you know there is actually a science behind the process of drying? Having the knowledge of pshycrometrics 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, SERVPRO of West Amarillo Professionals are trained in the science of drying  and follow strict industry approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages. If your home or business suffers a water damage, SERVPRO of West Amarillo will:

-Inspect the building to detect every component that is  wet to help prevent secondary damage from happening.

-Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitori whether the materials are drying properly.

-Speed up Mother Nature  by using professional drying equipment.

What exactly does it mean to help "speed up Mother Nature"? A wet structure can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, mopisture 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 structure is drying out.

SERVPRO of West Amarillo has the tools and equipment to help Mother Nature along, including equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough-to-reach spaces inside walls, and much more. They also use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and a proven scientific process to help speed the drying of your home or business.

The bottom line? SERVPRO of West Amarillo has the training and equipment to help make water damage "Like it never even happened."
