Dehumidification Can Speed up the Drying Process. But for Efficient Drying and Mitigation, SERVPRO Uses Water Removal Equipment That is Up to 900 Times More Effective

What is the fastest way to dry a wet property?

Drying a property relies on using the right resources and equipment. Most Merrimack water restorers opt for extraction equipment over dehumidification because it provides quick results. A water extractor, sometimes referred to as hot water extraction uses a heating element combined with negative air pressure. Usually, these equipment are fitted to a truck-mount, which provides the necessary power for both vacuuming and heating. At the return side of the equipment, a restorer can use a range of fittings to remove water from walls, carpeting, fabrics, or furnishing. Water extractors using light-wands are useful for areas of restrictive access.

Is equipment essential in drying a property?

  • Submersible water pumps which have a range of versatile uses for both solid-waste and subterranean water removal  
  • Hot water extractors which can be adapted to the requirements of the situation
  • Rapid air-movers can help to promote airflow which encourages evaporation

Is dehumidification necessary to dry out indoor spaces?

One of the risks of drying a wet property is that evaporating moisture can raise relative humidity. Higher levels of humidity can result in condensation damages as well as microbial growth concerns. SERVPRO uses dehumidifiers in a property to maintain control over conditions while applying more effective drying equipment like axial air-movers. The average time to completely dry property is around five days. However, molds can reach full growth in as little as seventy-two hours in the right conditions. Therefore, it is essential to maintain control over indoor humidity levels to prevent secondary damage while conducting primary water restoration.
