How Can SERVPRO Help After Flood Damage to Your Nashua Home?
SERVPRO Carries Out Fast and Efficient Flood Damage Restoration in Nashua
Flood damage restoration after a storm must happen fast in your Nashua home to limit the impact. SERVPRO techs use advanced technology and equipment to remove the standing floodwater and dry and decontaminate the structure after a flooding incident.
Once on site, the SERVPRO techs begin the flood damage restoration of your Nashua home by removing water with the help of state-of-the-art water extraction equipment. We use different pumps and extraction units to remove as much water as quickly as possible. The second step in flood restoration is drying the structure.
Role of Dehumidifiers in Water Damage Restoration
SERVPRO techs manipulate the humidity of the drying air using different types of dehumidifying equipment. When strategically placed within the damaged structure, dehumidifiers can lower the moisture content of air by removing water vapor.
We use three types of dehumidifiers:
- Refrigerant dehumidifiers work by condensing the water vapor in air by cooling it below the de point. The dry air is then recirculated to accelerate the drying rate.
- Low-grain dehumidifiers have a pre-cooling component that allows them to dry the air to as low as 34 gpp.
- Desiccation dehumidifiers use chemicals called desiccators that absorb moisture from the air.
The type of dehumidifier used depends on several factors, including moisture content and air temperature.
Role of Temperature in Drying the Structure
Increasing the temperature of the drying air allows it to absorb more moisture from wet surfaces. SERVPRO techs use portable electric heaters and indirect-fired furnaces to create ideal temperature conditions to speed up drying.
