SERVPRO Deals in Science for Strategic Drying of Water Damaged Units in the Bronx
Evaluating a Bronx Apartment for the Best Drying Practices
Water loss incidents present a specific timeline that Bronx homeowners and property owners must adhere to if they intend to preserve installed exposed materials. With how quickly water losses can spread throughout an apartment, for example, the severity of the loss can change the drying equipment needed to recover the items from the damage. Our SERVPRO professionals must employ drying sciences to determine the best approach.
Many factors can cause drying to occur at a much slower rate than it should, which can result in worsening water damage for Bronx apartments. Psychrometry, or the study of air properties, can help to identify some key figures that can dictate the potential success of specific drying strategies for apartments. With units sharing walls, the threat of structural moisture can become an effect that migrates to neighboring residences and can become a widespread concern for the entire floor of a building, or damage to a verticle tower with water seepage.
High humidity is one of the factors that play a role in the slowing of material drying. Low humidity, as you might expect, can enhance drying times. It is the job of our SERVPRO technicians on-site to identify the best containment procedures to regulate relative humidity (RH) levels within an affected area of the residence. Damaged portions of an apartment dry more efficiently and thoroughly when the tools get used in already lower-humidity conditions.
Temperature is another condition that can have an effect on the drying process within a damaged area of a local apartment. Within the drying zone established with the containment barriers installed, our technicians must establish a consistent temperature without running the risk of enhancing secondary effects like mold and microbial growth.
Our professionals get trained to establish a moisture baseline and to manipulate conditions in the drying zone to favor ideal conditions to remove moisture and saturation. An efficient process can save our customers time and money on recovery efforts.
