We Work Fast to Overcome Water Damage to Siesta Key Homes

Flooding is an unfortunate scenario that many coastal homes must contend with during their life. How rapidly these scenarios form showcases the urgency and need for experienced water and flood restoration technicians like our SERVPRO team.

The Principles of Effective Drying 

Regardless of the flood damage in Siesta Key homes, the principles of drying a flood-damaged residence do not change. After extraction, water saturation in areas like the attic or crawlspace need fast and efficient drying techniques to prevent more significant harm to the property. We balance three specific drying principles to maximize evaporation efficiency, including:

  • Temperature – Increasing temperature increases energy within water molecules and increases the efficiencies of evaporation.
  • Humidity – Lowering the humidity ratio decreases vapor pressure, liberating moisture from saturated materials to speed-up the drying process.
  • Airflow – Directed airflow disturbs cool vapor barriers and puts relatively dry air in contact with the material to increase the rate of evaporation.

Effectively Utilizing Humidity

Dry air is essential to promote the most efficient environment for drying a water damaged house. Lower humidity enables the faster drying of materials, and the evaporation process becomes more efficient. Our experienced professionals monitor humidity within the environment to determine when more significant action is necessary to reduce the relative humidity in the space that could impact water removal efficiencies.

Using Airflow for Efficient Drying

Air movers are among the essential elements to promoting proper airflow throughout a damaged environment. The positioning of these units effects all wet surfaces and becomes critical to removing cool vapor barriers present around damaged structural elements; they could prevent faster drying practices.

Flooding might not be avoidable, but you’ll be choosing a fast and reliable restoration and drying approach when you reach out to our experienced SERVPRO of South Sarasota team. Give us a call today at (941) 552-6319.
