SERVPRO Saves Time and Cost of Water Mitigation for Slidell Businesses
Water mitigation of your Slidell commercial property by professionals like SERVPRO aims to reduce the extent of the loss. Mitigation services involve:
- Removing excess water from the property.
- Deodorizing the structure to return the property to its preloss condition as quickly as possible.
Every water mitigation situation in Slidell commercial properties is different, and SERVPRO uses an individualized approach to increase the efficiency of the process. Our IICRC-certified techs thoroughly evaluate the extent and scope of the damage before finalizing the restoration strategy.
Why is Dehumidification an Essential Step in Water Damage Restoration?
When water intrudes your Slidell commercial property, it can either accumulate as free water or be absorbed into porous building materials. While the techs use pumps to extract the standing water, the absorbed moisture is much more difficult to remove.
The hidden, absorbed water continues to damage the structural components, and techs must remove it as quickly as possible to prevent permanent damage. SERVPRO techs use dehumidification to facilitate the drying of the structure by creating optimal drying conditions.
As dehumidification removes the water from drying air, the equilibrium shifts and water evaporates out of the wet materials. SERVPRO uses several pieces of equipment to remove the excess moisture from the air to create ideal drying conditions. Some essential types of dehumidifiers we use in commercial properties include-
- Refrigerant dehumidifiers
- Desiccant dehumidifiers
- Low grain dehumidifiers
- Direct expansion units
When are Desiccant Dehumidifiers Used?
While about 80% of water restoration jobs are served best by refrigerant dehumidifiers, desiccant dehumidifiers are necessary when the air temperature is below 500F. Techs use desiccant dehumidifiers to dry dense materials having low permeability and porosity.
