Flood Damage Technicians In Riverview Describe Applied Structural Drying

The time of year where thunderstorms strike often is starting to hit the Riverview area. When severe weather makes its way into your neighborhood, the chances of your home being a victim of flood damage increases. During a storm, water can build up on the ground outside and then find its way into your house. Thunderstorms can also bring about heavy hitting winds that can puncture the exterior of your building. Anytime moisture finds its way into your structure, it is wise to call in a professional flood damage restoration company such as SERVPRO.

When water gets into the interior of your home many different types of problems can occur. Our water restoration technicians or WRTs in Riverview know that flood damage can come in various forms. Once moisture gets into a building, the water evaporates into the air and starts to soak into your building materials and structural components. If items inside your house get saturated they can lose their structural integrity forcing them to be removed and replaced. If objects that are made out organic substances like wood or paper get wet there is a chance that mold can develop.

In order to mitigate problems related to moisture and prevent other issues from occurring in the future, our SERVPRO technicians take measures to remove all water from your building as quickly as possible. We start by removing the water that is easily noticeable while it is in its liquid form through extraction procedures. Next, we implement applied structural drying or ASD procedures.

During the ASD phase, our WRT attempts to alter the environment inside your home and speed up the natural drying and evaporation process. To accomplish this our SERVPRO team uses a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers. The air movers are set up in a way that they create air circulation in a counter-clockwise motion. The devices are aimed at wet surfaces like walls at a 45-degree angle so that they push wet air away from the damp surfaces so that more moisture can evaporate from the material. The dehumidifiers then pull water out of the air and dispense it in liquid form.

If you ever notice that water has entered your home after a thunderstorm, call SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview at (813) 741-3473 any day of the week.
