Water Damage Restoration Relies on Dry Conditions

When it comes to drying structures after a loss event, there are a few key factors to consider. We must identify the best spot with the right temperature, airflow, and moisture levels. Getting the moisture under control is especially crucial during the water restoration and cleanup of your Buffalo Grove home after a disaster. It's a delicate balance, but we can quickly get things back to normal with the right approach.

How Moisture Impacts the Recovery Process

Keeping relative humidity levels in check can make a huge difference in drying. When humidity is high and moisture is left unchecked, it can slow drying and ruin building materials. Hidden water damage can also be a significant issue; humid conditions create the perfect breeding ground for mold growth.

How SERVPRO® Overcomes Moisture

Ensuring that your home's restoration process goes smoothly is crucial, and one of the critical factors that can impact it is the moisture level in your living spaces. It's about more than just the areas you occupy but also the ones you don't, like the attic and crawl space. Luckily, there are various ways to control the moisture levels, such as:

We collect water from the environment to exhaust outside or dispose of from trays in the machines. Dryer air makes surface evaporation faster.

  • Following Moisture Through Your House

Our moisture management solutions track damp areas and ensure adequate drying. Sensors and thermography give a clear picture of damage and identify areas that need more attention.

  • Sealing and Encapsulation Services 

Encapsulation is a solution to manage wetness in crawl spaces. It protects materials with a vapor barrier and prevents excessive moisture from affecting the main floor of the house.

There is no time to lose when contending with water and moisture damage. Our SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove / Lake Zurich team is ready 24/7 with water removal, drying, and moisture management solutions for efficient post-disaster recovery. Call today at (847) 279-1940.
