Why Air Movement is Necessary During Water Damage Restoration in Phoenix
SERVPRO Technicians Understand That Time is Important When Remediating Water Damage in Order to Help Prevent Mold
A leaky plumbing system or a tap that is accidentally left open when you are not at home can lead to water damage. To do away with such unfortunate incidents, extracting the water and drying your properties as soon as you can is necessary. When some materials stay wet for up to 48 hours, there are chances of mold growth taking place. When are going to look at how air movement help when salvaging your contents and restoring your Phoenix home.
During water damage restoration in Phoenix, our SERVPRO technicians use air movers to speed up the rate of evaporation and decrease the drying time. They work by increasing airflow around the wet surface and in the process push the moisture into the surrounding air. It means drier air replaces the wet air. We can also float carpets by using a carpet clamp which is present in some air movers and blow drier air. If we need to direct the air into wall cavities, then we can fit shrouds to the snouts of the air movers.
Our SERVPRO technicians are careful when using these appliances since they are so powerful and can blow away curtains and wall hangings. We also vent all the corners of a floating carpet to avoid stretching. To prevent the air mover from overheating, we make sure there are no chances of blocking the inlet during operation.
When it is necessary to move higher quantities of air during the restoration process, we may decide to use heavy-duty venting fans. These devices are also known as axial fans and can move 3,200 CFM. As wet air is added into the surrounding air, the relative humidity rises and there reaches a point where the air cannot absorb any additional moisture. It is the point where our SERVPRO technicians perform dehumidification by using dehumidifiers.
