Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Once the excess water has been removed, the floors and walls may appear dry in your home or business location of Portage County. However, a quick inspection will reveal they are wet to the touch. SERVPRO of Portage County professionals will keep you up to date on the process. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore retain water. It is important to hire a professional for those reasons. This retained water can cause the materials to break down, warp, or cause mold damage. Rest assured our team at SERVPRO of Portage County will have it back to normal in no time.
Drying / Dehumidification
Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
