SERVPRO Saves Time and Money in Water Mitigation of Brooklyn Homes

Water damage from a storm can be a devastating experience, leaving homeowners with flooded homes, damaged personal belongings, and uncertain about what to do next. Water mitigation of your Brooklyn home is a complex process that requires careful planning.  

SERVPRO’s IICRC-certified techs use a multi-step process during the water mitigation of your Brooklyn home. The first step is removing the standing water, then drying the property to limit the extent of the damage. SERVPRO techs manipulate the temperature and humidity of the air to speed up the drying process. 

The Role of Dehumidifiers in Water Restoration 

Dehumidifiers play a crucial role in the water damage restoration process as they help to remove moisture from the air and speed up the drying process. In the aftermath of a storm, excess moisture in the air further damages the property and its contents. SERVPRO techs use strategically placed dehumidifiers to reduce the humidity of the air during the restoration process. 

SERVPRO techs use the following two types of dehumidifying equipment:

  • Refrigerant dehumidifiers: They draw in moist air and pass it over refrigerant coils, which cool the air and condense the moisture into the water, which is then collected and removed.
  • Desiccant dehumidifiers: When the temperature is low (below 500F), SERVPRO techs use desiccant dehumidifiers that pass moist air over special material like silica gel that attracts and captures water molecules. 

Heating and Cooling Equipment in Flood Restoration  

The temperature of a water-damaged home must be controlled to ensure proper drying. SERVPRO techs use indirect-fired furnaces and portable electric heaters to control the air temperature. Techs use direct expansion (DX) units for more significant projects that combine temperature and humidity control in one piece of equipment.
