How Professionals Remove Water From Your Raleigh Home

Water Damage How Professionals Remove Water From Your Raleigh Home Water can damage everything it touches, from the structure to furniture. Removing water quickly is important to restoring your home.

Choosing an Appropriate Drying System during Water Damage Restoration in Raleigh

There are several ways in which water damage incidents affect your property. For instance, if your wooden furniture stays in the water for an extended period, then it may swell, crack, or even break. Quick response is the best way of dealing with such incidents when they take place in your Raleigh home. We have to physically extract the water from your property by using pumps and portable/truck-mounted extractors. 

After using physical means to extract water from your water damaged Raleigh property, our SERVPRO technicians select an appropriate drying system. As water evaporates from wet surfaces, it gets added to the surrounding air as moisture. When the temperature of the room lowers with time, the moisture in the air can condense and cause secondary damage. The drying system that we choose must address this concern and remove the moisture as soon as it accumulates in the air. 

When it is necessary to exchange the moist air in the room with the outside air, which is usually drier, our SERVPRO technicians use an open system. During this technique, we may ventilate the building using air movers or fans, or even open the windows. We use this process when the air outside the structure has more than 20 gpp relative to the air within the building. Since the weather can change at any given time, it means the open system is efficient under certain conditions. 

Sometimes it is necessary to close off the site from the unaffected areas of the structure and the outside air. Under such circumstances, we use a closed system. We use dehumidifiers and air movers when controlling the indoor environments to yield the needed results. Irrespective of the drying system our SERVPRO technicians settle on, we work towards achieving a balanced drying system. Under such a scenario, we remove as much water vapor from the surrounding air as the fans or air movers put in.
