Water Damage Restoration Essentials: The Dehumidifier
After your home has a water damage, your main objective is to get your life back to normal. At SERVPRO of Catawba County West, it’s our goal to help you achieve yours. Because water damage mitigation is one of our specialties, we have the techniques and equipment to make any water damage “Like it never even happened!” One of the tools we use to achieve this is a dehumidifier.
When your home is humid, mold spores and other allergens are more likely to cause issues. Not only that, any water damage you may have will take longer to dry. That’s where a dehumidifier comes in.
A dehumidifier is a machine that draws in moisture from the air and converts it back into a liquid by cooling the air, capturing the liquid in a container, and then returning the warm, dry air back into the room. This process essentially dries the air so we can restore your home faster.
Team Effort: Air Mover and Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers are an essential part of the water mitigation process, but they are only one half of the equation. They work in conjunction with air movers, which are high-powered fans that offer strong velocities and precision.
The air movers blow air across the surface of moisture, which increases the evaporation rate and directs airflow. The added humidity is then drawn in by the dehumidifiers to reduce moisture and allow the area to dry at a faster rate, which reduces to risk of additional damages.
