Drying the Floor with an Electric Fan

Homeowners Tried to Dry the Floor with an Electric Fan

A fan may seem like a logical choice to help dry water damage, but it can actually do more harm than good. Trying to dry water damage with an electric fan can actually make the problem worse. The fan will blow the moisture around the room, which will cause it to spread and create more damage. SERVPRO Richardson Mold Remediation professionals have the experience and equipment necessary to properly dry water damage so you can return to your home in a timely manner. Get in touch with SERVPRO Richardson for all your water damage restoration needs.

Mold-Free Building

A Dry Building is a Mold-Free Building

Water from flooding will soak into carpets and upholstery. Damp materials will fuel mold growth and lead to a musty building with poor indoor air quality. If your property has been flooded, it must be thoroughly dried to prevent mold growth and more damage to the structure. Our Water Damage Restoration Services in Richardson use a variety of industrial-grade equipment to dry materials and cut down humidity to acceptable, mold-free levels.

Injector Dry Helps Dry Behind Walls Without Demolition in Frisco, Texas

It’s always our goal to limit the amount the demolition needed after a water damage.  An injector dry is a specialized drying tool that helps us accomplish this goal.  After the baseboard is removed, small holes are drilled at the base of your wall.  The injector dry is slotted through those holes and pumps warm, dehumidified air into the air space behind the wall.  Our technicians monitor the drying process every day to ensure the technique is working quickly enough to avoid possible mold growth.  After the wall has dried to goal, the baseboard is reattached. 

Water Underneath Flooring in Waxahachie, Texas

After a water damage, you will see one of our technicians using a meter on your floor, we are checking for moisture.  Many times, water has seeped into the flooring and is hiding underneath--even though the top of the floor may seem perfectly dry.  Leaving moisture underneath the flooring will lead to mold growth and often leave the flooring permanently damaged.  When our technicians find moisture using their meters, they will seek more advanced mitigation techniques to make sure your property is completely dry and safe.

Injecting Air Behind a Wall After a Water Damage in Richardson

It's sometimes necessary to drill small holes at the bottom of the wall in order to direct warm, dehumidified air behind a wall.  Injecting air into the wall does three things:

1) It raises the air pressure which causes the water to evaporate at lower temperatures. 

2) It adds heat to the air, which provides water the energy it needs to turn from a liquid into a vapor, and

3) It removes humidity from the air which allows water to move from the structure into the air. 

Our goal is to always save as much of the structure as possible after a water damage
