We Have The Best Drying Practices In Brandon After A Flood
How to Dry Your Brandon Residence Thoroughly After Flood Damage
Data from the federal emergency management agency (FEMA) shows that flooding is a significant cause of property damage. It may happen when you least expected and catch you off guard. When flooding occurs, your safety and that of your loved ones is the priority. You can turn to SERVPRO for high-quality flood restoration services.

Our restorers are skilled and equipped with advanced flood restoration equipment. We also use advanced strategies to restore flood-damaged homes to their preloss state. We offer a comprehensive consultation where our team inspects the affected home and assesses the destruction. We can provide you with a detailed restoration plan, enabling you to make an informed decision about your home.
Floodwater can continue causing damage the longer it remains in your home. Our SERVPRO crew can set up water removal equipment to remove the water. After removing the water, we can set up air movers and dehumidifiers in your home to eliminate the moisture. Identifying hidden moisture is also vital because it can cause mold infestation. Our restorers use various types of moisture detection equipment to check for moisture in the structures and contents of a house. They include:
- Penetrating and non-penetrating moisture
- Moisture sensors
- Thermal imaging cameras
To eliminate the moisture, we can use desiccant dehumidifiers to dry your property. This equipment releases dry, warm air in high humidity conditions to remove moisture from the air. Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemicals known as desiccants to absorb moisture. Desiccants have a high affinity for water and they absorb moisture from the air a dehumidifier processes. As the air passes across the desiccant material, it is heated and this causes it to release the water it contains. The moisture-laden air is then vented out of the building.
Our team can also dry the inside of walls using structural cavity drying equipment. We can remove the baseboards and drill small holes through the drywall. We then push air into the cavity behind the walls, speeding up the drying time. This process is also useful for drying different kinds of insulation without having to remove the drywall.
By using advanced drying techniques, we achieve faster drying times that minimize the risk of mold growth. The reduced drying time also helps minimize restoration expenses and you can return to your home sooner with minimal disruption.
Eliminating moisture quickly also allows for porous materials like drywall and wood to be restored fully without swelling. The fabric in drapes, upholstery and other furnishings also dries faster. Furthermore, quick drying can help prevent the rusting of metals in hinges and doorknobs. It can also prevent electronics from sustaining flood damage due to high humidity levels.
