Commercial Water Damage Technicians in New Milford Explain Dehumidification
SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Water Damage at Your Commercial Storage Facility
Sometimes problems can take place with severe weather, water pipes, or appliances that negatively affect your New Milford storage complex. Excessive moisture can cause problems with building materials and contents inside your storage business units. If organic materials or contents get affected and stay wet for more than 48 hours, the development and spreading of mold can occur.
Removing moisture as quickly as possible is essential to prevent issues in the future. During any commercial water damage in New Milford, extraction and drying take place to reduce moisture levels as quickly as possible. While the work occurs, measures get taken to reduce a loss of business.
The number one priority when handling problems at your place of business is the safety of your customers and employees. Our SERVPRO technicians often change the way they conduct restoration procedures to ensure safety at your company's property and reduce any loss of income. Any known safety hazards get repaired immediately, or the area gets blocked off and marked with caution tape.
Once our SERVPRO technicians are confident that the work area is safe, the extraction stage begins. First, any standing water that is two inches or deeper gets removed using a submersible pump. Then, specialized extraction equipment gets used to remove moisture from any carpet or contents containing upholstery or any other fabric materials.
After our SERVPRO technicians extract all of the water their advanced equipment allows, we begin rapidly drying out structural materials and contents inside your storage units. When drying buildings, we use the advanced technology of the latest air moving and dehumidification equipment to increase the rate of evaporation. Air movers create air circulation while dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and lower the relative humidity inside the structure.
Dehumidifiers dispense moisture out of the air in liquid form while they exhaust out hot, dry air for the air movers to utilize as well. Refrigerant dehumidifiers use chilled coils to cause water to condense out of the wet air. Desiccant dehumidifiers pull air across water absorbing silica gel, then heat up the gel to release the moisture into liquid form.
Desiccant dehumidifiers are mostly used in specialty drying situations. When materials like concrete get very wet, desiccant systems work better to pull out the moisture. If you ever have to deal with wet contents and structural materials at your place of business, call SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood at (201) 266-0482.
