Optimizing Dehumidification After Water Damage to Mill Basin Homes

Dehumidification is one of the most essential steps in water damage restoration of Mill Basin homes. Restorers use dehumidifiers to reduce the humidity of the air and create favorable drying conditions within the drying zones. 

SERVPRO techs ensure that all the moisture evaporating off wet materials gets dehumidified during water damage restoration of Mill Basin homes. Hence, the restorers must install a sufficient number of dehumidifying equipment at the correct locations to get the best possible results. Once the SERVPRO water restoration techs arrive at the site, they calculate how many pints per day (PPD) of water must be removed within 24 hours. After careful consideration of the conditions, the techs decide what type and number of dehumidifiers they need to use.  

Considerations While Placing Dehumidifiers During Water Cleanup

Simply placing a dehumidifier somewhere in the drying zone can start the dehumidification process. However, it is vital to strategically place several of them throughout your water-damaged Mill Basin home to get the best possible results. Some considerations while placing dehumidifiers include:

  • Ideally, SERVPRO techs place at least one dehumidifier in the room where water intrusion 
  • Techs place dehumidifiers such that their exhaust can be directed toward wet materials.
  • The techs let the units run non-stop until they achieve the set drying goal.

A combination of state-of-the-art commercial dehumidifiers and their strategic placement can reduce the drying times to 12 to 36 hours, depending on the water damage situation.
