Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process

During the drying and dehumidification step in the restoration process is where SERVPRO of Marietta West sets ourselves apart from the competition. SERVPRO professionals are equipped with cutting edge drying technology, years of experience in the water restoration industry, and the training necessary to dry out even the most stubborn water damaged areas. SERVPRO technicians are well versed in the IICRC’s S500 Standards and have received IICRC training as well as training in SERVPRO’s proprietary restoration training programs. Our technicians will place drying equipment around your home or business, monitoring the equipment regularly to facilitate the drying process. As part of the monitoring process technicians will document the drying progress using out moisture mapping systems which many insurance companies and adjusters require.

Drying / Dehumidification

Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
