How Does SERVPRO Use Drying Sciences for Flood Recovery in Teaneck Homes?

Understanding water behavior can help restorers to quickly dry Teaneck properties.

There is an undeniable urgency with flooding to clean and dry the property before controlled demolition and reconstruction are necessary. Technicians must provide the appropriate equipment and processes to manipulate specific drying sciences to maximize evaporation and remove moisture content with dehumidifiers. To effectively restore a home after flooding, technicians must balance:

  • Temperature
  • Airflow
  • Humidity

How Natural Equilibrium Can Benefit the Drying Process

The experience of our SERVPRO team to manage flood damage in Teaneck homes comes from understanding how water damage reacts in a controlled environment. Variables like the porosity of materials can impact the natural scientific process of moisture, temperature, and pressures seeking an equilibrium. Our professionals anticipate several natural reactions:

  • Hot migrates to cold
  • High pressures migrate to low pressures
  • Wet migrates to dry

How Does SERVPRO Use This Movement for Faster Drying?

With SERVPRO technicians highly educated in air and water behaviors, we can anticipate the migration of moisture. Because humid environments seek to find balance with dry areas of the property, our team can place drying tools and moisture removal equipment in this path to prevent the water damage incident from getting worse. We can position the circulation pattern of warm, dry air to increase the evaporation rate. Then our LGR low-grain refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers can capture and condense the water vapor, thereby reducing the RH relative humidity within the structure.

Floods can be destructive and overwhelming. Our SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood team can help efficiently dry and clean the property after these losses. Between surface cleaning and drying solutions, we can make disasters “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (201) 266-0482.
