Trust SERVPRO For Professional Monitoring of the Drying Process!

The success of water damage restoration projects is based on patience, vigilance, and precision. It might be relatively straightforward to bring high-powered drying machines onto a site and set them up but regulating their progress can be trickier. Fortunately, the experts at SERVPRO have years of experience in the water damage repair industry.

We know that successful drying requires a careful balance of equipment, time frames, intensities, and temperature control measures. When we repair water damages in Abilene homes, we make scores of mathematical calculations to ensure that dehumidification and circulation tools are working in perfect harmony.

At SERVPRO, we do not ask you to trust in promises, because we deliver demonstrable, verifiable results. Keep reading to find out why we think progress targets are such a big deal.

Why a Dynamic Approach is Effective

The greater the size of the affected area, the more challenges it presents for remediation experts because there is likely more than one type of water damage. For example, in a sitting room or den, there may be soft furnishings, wallpaper, drywall, plaster, electronics, and books and other paper documents to save. Each of these items requires a slightly different drying and cleaning technique.  Dehumidifiers are ideal for all round drying, in large rooms, but they have to be used in moderation if there is a lot of wooden furniture around. Similarly, both wet and dry fogging can be applied to get rid of damp, musty smells, but wet fogging isn’t suitable for use around electronics. Then, there’s the question of whether water has intruded into the walls and ceilings or under cabinets.

The Value of On-Site Monitoring

While the experts at SERVPRO have spent many years working with the effects of water damage, even they cannot guarantee that a particular drying approach will be successful until they see the results for themselves. For this reason, consistent, persistent monitoring of progress and the achievement of key drying goals is essential.

Our SERVPRO technicians may leave fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers running overnight (or for several days in the case of severe water damage), but they are onsite regularly to make sure that everything is going smoothly. If moisture levels are dropping and relative humidity is falling too, the drying approach is working.
