The Right Equipment

Air movers placed after water damage. These air movers are placed in a spot where moisture was detected.

You may be wondering how our equipment does its job during the mitigation process. So let me explain, at the initial inspection we will use detection equipment such as moisture sensors, moisture meters, or thermohygrometers. These all do different things depending on what and where we are detecting moisture. Once we determine where and how wet the structure is we can figure out how many air movers and possibly dehumidifiers are needed. The purpose of an air mover is to enhance evaporation at the surface level which reduces the drying time. In a water-damaged home, dehumidifiers pull in the humid air and then discharge dry warm air. The dry air acts like a sponge absorbing moisture from wet materials. The equipment will stay in the appropriate locations of the home until the structure reads dry on a moisture meter. Once it is all dried up a crew chief or technician will have a final walk-through to ensure that you are happy with the work that SERVPRO has provided.
