Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The Science of Dallas Water Damage Remediation

12/28/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of North Irving is an IICRC Certified firm, and the majority of our employees have IICRC water restoration certifications.

Using Professional Drying Equipment

Drying a residential or commercial property after a water damage in Dallas needs to be done correctly and quickly.  Our home water damage restoration process has a scientific process and decades of experience to ensure your home does not experience any more damage.  We use the right amount of professional drying equipment strategically placed to make sure your property gets dried properly and quickly.  We use air movers, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers, and other specialized equipment as needed.  

SERVPRO Water Damage Technicians

SERVPRO of North Irving’s technicians are trained in the science of psychrometrics.  We are an IICRC Certified firm, and the majority of our employees have IICRC water restoration certifications.  We follow strict restoration industry approved standards.

One of the basic lessons in water damage restoration is learning about psychometry.

What is Psychometry?

Psychrometry is the calculation of relative humidity and water vapor pressures from temperature and barometric pressure.  It’s also called hygrometry.

We use the science of psychometry to know how to proceed with your water damage restoration.  Every day we visit your property, we take careful measurements to know if our process is working or if it needs adjustment to dry your properly on time.  We gather data such as temperature, relative humidity, and more.

Why Drying is Vital to Water Damage Services

Materials can often dry on their own if the moisture in the wet material moves to drier air (assuming there is drier air).  An example that you probably see almost every day is a glass with a bit of water in it. After a while, that while will have evaporated and your glass won’t be wet anymore.  It’s nature!

The problem with letting nature take care of drying your property is that it simply takes too long.  The longer a material takes to dry, the higher the chances are for secondary damage. Secondary damage in a water damage involves mold growth and permanent damage of the wet material.

Avoiding secondary damage is the reason we use professional drying equipment, such as air movers, dehumidifiers, and other specialty equipment.  The goal is to help nature by speeding up how quickly she works.

Our technicians know the most efficient way to dry your structure.  We know which equipment to use, how much, and where to best place it so it can be the most efficient.  

Monitoring the Drying Process

Our damage restoration technicians will visit your property every day to check the drying status of all wet materials and our equipment.  We document different points of data on every visit and check it against our drying goals. If one room has met its drying goal, the equipment from that room is removed.  This is one way where we make sure that we only charge for the equipment while it’s being useful.

If you have filed a water damage claim with your insurance company, all drying data is shared with them as we gather it.  This gives your insurance adjuster proof that our company is taking care of you correctly.

The Goal of the Drying Process

Our efforts to dry your property don’t stop until we have proof your entire structure is dry.  We consider a room to be dried to goal when its data points match a room that was not affected by the water damage.

We document all drying data into SERVPRO’s proprietary program called DryBook Mobile.  This is how we:
