Clyde Hill Homes Need Flood Damage Drying from Air Movers
Flood Damage Is Mitigated with Air Movers
Flooding can be a widespread concern for your residence, especially when building materials and contents begin to absorb this migrating moisture. It is imperative to start drying approaches as soon as possible, and air movers are among the most important tools for this process. Varieties of this equipment include:
Continuous Beneficial Airflow
The most direct benefit of air movers in recovering flood damage in Clyde Hill homes is the manipulation of air. Many materials are affected by saturation and absorption, but air movers provide a steady dispersal of focused warm air against damp surfaces to evaporate the moisture. SERVPRO technicians can frequently move these high-velocity units to provide a stable output of effective evaporative drying.
Raising Vapor Pressure
Vapor pressure is an essential principle of effective drying in residence. Increasing the temperature in the affected room by using air movers to circulate the warmth increases the drying process overall in the designated workspace. When temperatures of trapped moisture increase, kinetic energy and molecular movement also increase. Vapor pressure increases in this scenario as more efficient vaporization of surface moisture occurs.
Removing the Vapor Barrier
When evaporation occurs, a natural barrier of cool air begins to form just above the material's surface. This boundary can prevent efficient drying. Air movers can help by blasting through this cool air barrier and continuing to impact the underlying wet surface. Centrifugal units are specifically designed to focus a blast of warm air at a designated point on the wall or ceiling to overcome this challenging layer.
Air movers are one of the most common drying tools used by our SERVPRO of Bellevue West team when removing surface water and trapped moisture. We can overcome several obstacles in the drying process with various types of these units. Do not wait to get mitigation started after a flood - call us now at (425) 454-3900.
