The Science of Drying!

11/8/2017 (Permalink)

The knowledge of psychometrics is essential to restoring a structure to its pre loss condition. Where the average Do-It-Yourself homeowner or business owner might be tempted to grab a few beach towels to mop up the mess and place a box fan or two around the damaged area, the SERVPRO of McKinney professionals follow strict industry-approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages.

For starters, one of our trained restorers will:

  • Inspect the building to detect ever component that is wet, preventing damage from happening because wet components were overlooked.
  • Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.
  • Speed up mother nature by using professional drying equipment.

What exactly does "speed up mother nature" mean?

A wet building can often dry naturally because our environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, moisture 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 takes too long, and secondary damages occur while the building is drying out.

For this reason, SERVPRO of McKinney professionals have been trained to use top-of-the-line equipment to help "mother nature" along, including equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough to reach spaces inside walls and much more. We also use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and a proven scientific process to help speed up the drying process of your home or business.
