Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
When water damage affected several apartment units in Long Beach, MS, SERVPRO of Hattiesburg helped with their water damaged properties. Our team immediately came in to start mitigation services so there was no further damage to the units. We started extracting remaining water and placing dehumidifiers throughout affected units, as well as applying botanical antimicrobial products throughout. By the second day the materials were responding well and on track to being fully restored. On the fourth day all materials were dried, and our team left making the units looks “Like it never even happened.” Our highly trained technicians are ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to respond immediately to flood or water damage at your Mississippi Gulf Coast property. We have the experience, expertise, and training to restore your home or business quickly and properly. We use advanced inspection and extraction equipment to find the water and remove it as quickly as possible. Our local technicians will closely monitor and document the drying process to ensure your property is back to normal as fast as possible.
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.
- Use Dehumidification Equipment
- Use Monitoring Equipment to Track Progress
Monitor Floor and Walls
We check the moisture levels to monitor the drying process.
- Monitor Floors
- Monitor Walls
- Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
- High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
