Did You Know There is Science Behind Our Drying Process?

Water Damage Did You Know There is Science Behind Our Drying Process? A sink overflowed on the 2nd floor affected multiple floors with water damage so we brought in our drying equipment to speed up Mother Nature.

Your initial reaction to a water damage may be to grab a few towels to mop up the mess and place a fan or two around the wet area, but there is actually a science behind the drying process. SERVPRO of Toms River is highly trained in the science of drying and follow strict standards to help lower the chance of secondary damages. If you suffer a water damage, we will:

  • Inspect the building to detect every component that is wet to help prevent secondary damage.
  • Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.
  • Speed up Mother Nature by using professional drying equipment.

Why exactly do we need to speed up Mother Nature? A wet building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, moisture will naturally move to drier air at the surface of the material but only if the air is, indeed, drier. The only problem is, nature often takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is drying out, which could lead to the dreaded mold word.

SERVPRO of Toms River has the tools and equipment necessary to help Mother Nature along, including hardwood floors, tough to reach spaces or inside walls and much more. We also use state of the art monitoring equipment and technology along with a proven scientific process to help speed the drying of your property.
