How SERVPRO of Missoula makes water damage “Like it never even happened”
When a pipe bursts in your home or you find that your A/C has been leaking onto the hardwood, your first instinct might be to throw down some towels and let nature take its course. While the environment does seek equilibrium wherein water molecules in material will naturally evaporate over time until the material has reached the same dry levels as the air around it. Secondary damage can occur in the time it takes for materials to dry naturally, especially if you live in a humid area.
That’s where the science of drying comes in. The science behind drying is called psychometrics and takes into account all three sides of the drying triangle: airflow, heat, and dehumidification. So, if you also pointed a fan at the wet materials, you were thinking of airflow. If you turned up the thermostat, you were thinking of heat. But what happens when you push the wet air around without the right equipment or inadvertently make the area more humid by turning up the heat?
At SERVPRO of Missoula, our IICRC* certified technicians are trained in the science of drying, so you don’t have to worry about the effects of improperly dried water damage in your home. We use professional-grade fans and dehumidifiers to make sure your home is dried quickly and completely, and we continue to monitor the area until moisture is no longer detected.
