Professional Drying Techniques Professionals Use On Water Damage In Your Marysville Home 

Water damage technicians use a variety of tools, and training to dry structural components and contents found in your Marysville area home when problems arise. One of the essential tools we typically use is airflow, where we position air movers to increase evaporation and improve the entire drying process. 

Having access to technicians with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) means that you have the best opportunity to restore water damage on your Marysville property. We offer 24-hour emergency response, expert personnel, advanced equipment, and resources that make restoring your home faster than ever before. 

To understand more about how SERVPRO technicians use airflow to dry water damage, it helps to get a grasp on how placing air movers can achieve reliable results. We place air movers in a clockwise pattern, with the inlet facing the wall and the snout touching the wall. For best results, we make sure all of the affected walls line-up with the air stream. 

Drying out a water damaged property

To accomplish this, your SERVPRO teams place extra air movers in any bay windows, closets, or offsets. Each time we monitor the equipment on your property, we move air movers to the right or left in a circular pattern to ensure even drying throughout the area. On occasion, it becomes necessary to dry ceilings as well. We direct airflow to circulate warm air that often accumulates higher in open areas. 

Ventilation makes a significant difference in hard-to-dry areas, such as the interior of your walls. SERVPRO technicians can remove baseboards and drill small 1 ½” holes between each stud, using air mover attachments to force air into the wall cavity. When drying walls, we check the bottom of a stud to ensure the channel is not full of water to avoid using forced air to send standing water further into your walls.
