Controlling the Drying Process in Your Middletown Home 

Psychrometry is a science familiar to every one of our qualified water restoration technicians working for our SERVPRO team, and a field of expertise that can protect Middletown homes after water loss incidents. As quickly as these situations can get out of control, even for experienced professionals like ours, containment and environmental control are vital factors in maximizing the efficiency of the drying process. 

To many property owners, water damage in Middletown homes requires some fans, towels, and a mop to correct. In truth, many factors can play a substantial role in the effectiveness of specific drying techniques. Our understanding of environmental conditions and the spread of current water loss effects can be critical in overcoming these damages to make these water emergencies “Like it never even happened.” 

Humidity 

Humidity is one of the most direct obstacles that can affect the progress and efficiency of drying efforts in a residence. Often, when moist air is a concern, the solution is a ‘closed’ drying system in which all of the windows and doors around the damaged area get shut to prevent any outside influence on indoor humidity while refrigerant or desiccant dehumidifiers work to remove the present moisture. 

Airflow

Stagnant air can slow the progression of drying efforts as well. Directing airflow in a channel that brings dry air in and expels moist exhaust to the outside is vital to increase the rate in which drying completes. 

Temperature

Our SERVPRO professionals have to respond to many water loss incidents in the middle of winter, and we can see first-hand how vital focused heat can be in drying up water damaged areas of your house. We have portable electric heaters that can directly influence the temperature of wet materials and the entire drying zone. 

Environmental factors play a significant role in the speed and efficiency of drying efforts for your home. With the right focus and attention to these details, we can save our customers time and money on the restoration work their house needs. Give our SERVPRO of Middletown / New Britain team a call whenever you need us at (860) 826-5169.
