SERVPRO Can Safely Dry Your Slidell Property During Water Damage Cleanup

Prompt response is required during water damage cleanup to prevent further damage. Stopping the water source, extracting water from the structure, and controlling the site's humidity and moisture summarize the restoration processes. Water damage mitigation technicians have handled several incidents and are well-trained to develop a restoration plan that perfectly suits the situation.

To speed up evaporation during moisture control in Slidell, our SERVPRO technicians strategically position air-moving equipment. When moisture escapes from wet materials to the surrounding air, the evaporation speed gets slowed because a humid layer forms around the wet items or areas. So, we use air movers to introduce drier and warmer air to break up the layer and replace the humid air.

During the air-moving process, our team performs the following:

  • Ensure the equipment is positioned well for optimum coverage and airflow
  • Regularly monitor and adjust the equipment to enhance proper drying
  • Ensure the air mover is operating in a safe manner

Our SERVPRO team can use centrifugal or axial air movers to move dry air over wet surfaces. We prefer using centrifugal air movers when the affected area is not big and highly pressurized air needs to be directed to specific regions. Axial air movers are preferred when dealing with larger surfaces and when larger volumes of air need to spread over large areas.

The safety of our equipment is crucial during water removal. The air movers have thermally protected motors, safety screens at their outlets and inlets, and three-prong plugs that guarantee safe operation. Our SERVPRO team regularly cleans them to remove any dust accumulation and ensure they do not overheat due to over-stressing.

SERVPRO of Slidell is certified to offer professional water damage remediation assistance to commercial and residential properties. Call (985) 649-1516 to work with qualified restoration experts who use specialized equipment and resources to make it "Like it never even happened."
