Did you know there is actually a science behind the process of drying? The knowledge of psychrometrics is essential to restoring a water damaged structure to its preloss condition. While your initial reaction maybe to grab a few towels to mop up the mess and place a fan or two around the damaged area, SERVPRO of East Vancouver/ Clark County is trained in the science of drying and follow strict industry approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages. If your business suffers the water damage, SERVPRO of East Vancouver/ Clark County will:

-Inspect the building to detect every component that is wet, to help prevent secondary damage from happening.

-Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.

-Speed up mother nature by using professional drying equipment.

What exactly does “speed up Mother Nature” mean? What building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, moisture will naturally move to dryer air at the surface of the material but only if the air is, indeed, drier. The only problem is, nature takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is drying out.

For this reason, SERVPRO of East Vancouver/ Clark County have been trained to use top-of-the-line equipment to help mother nature along, including equipment to help dry hardwood floors, tough to reach spaces inside walls, and much more. We also use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment, and a proven scientific process to help speed the drying of your home or business.
