SERVPRO Technicians Have the Advanced Equipment and Training to Clean Up Water Damage and Dry Eagle Rock Properties

While many businesses in Eagle Rock store essential records and documents digitally or use cloud storage, many record types also need to be in a paper format. When water damage occurs, it is vital to save these documents from deterioration due to moisture. 

Eagle Rock business owners who promptly begin commercial water removal in their buildings tend to have the best outcome. The water extraction in the business continues after the pumps and other types of equipment have stopped. SERVPRO uses its drying equipment to continue the process. Air movers are valuable because of their ability to deliver high-velocity airflow and force embedded moisture to rise. Dehumidifiers capture this airborne water vapor and port it off-site. It is not unusual for SERVPRO technicians to deploy multiple units around documents exposed to moisture to ensure they dry completely. One of the most commonly used types is the refrigerant dehumidifier. 

  • This device pulls moisture from the air using condensation
  • It uses the flow of air forced over refrigerated coils
  • The condensed water removed from the air collects in a tray that either gets drained or machine-pumped off-site

One of the key elements for this type of dehumidifier to work well is the temperature at which it is placed. The job site needs to be over 50-degrees Fahrenheit. Along with paper products, this type of dehumidification unit works well on porous surfaces such as carpet, padding, and sheetrock. When the temperature is below 50-degrees, the technicians rely on desiccant dehumidifiers. This device uses airflow over silica gel that attracts and captures water vapor. It is ideal for use on hardwood floors and other dense materials.
