What Prevents Efficient Water Evaporation from Wantagh Building Materials?

5/18/2021 (Permalink)

Appliances may cause water damage needs for your home. SERVPRO will be on the scene within 4 hours of the initial call.

Several obstacles can prevent fast drying of installed construction elements in Wantagh properties.

Trapped moisture can be a substantial concern for water-damaged properties, as this can result in a need for demolition and reconstruction if not efficiently addressed. Achieving a balance of humidity, temperature, and airflow happens with tools like:

  • Centrifugal air movers
  • Axial air movers
  • Portable electric heaters
  • Containment barriers

How Can Drying Efforts be Slowed? 

One of the most significant hurdles to clearing water damage in Wantagh properties is plateauing. After direct air mover activity on specific points of damaged surfaces and building materials, the evaporation process can form a cool air barrier just above the surface that can slow the production of drying tools. Moving centrifugal air movers and warming the surface can often overcome these concerns and keep steady moisture removal progress.

Efficient water clean-up and flood restoration hinges on continual moisture monitoring. Our SERVPRO of Bellmore / Wantagh team is a trusted name in water restoration, and we are ready to help anytime at (516) 809-9600.
