SERVPRO Technicians Dry Your Using the Proper Equipment

Now and again we experience the effects of flood damage. Floods can leave behind massive losses worth thousands of dollars. No matter how well we are prepared to face such disasters, there are always incidents that happen and you can’t always plan for when a storm might hit. Champaign/Urbana residents need to work with IICRC certified restoration service providers like SERVPRO when dealing with the aftermath of flooding to ensure you get a timely response and accurate drying procedures.

Using the right equipment makes a big difference when restoring your Champaign/Urbana property after a flood damage disaster. That is the fact that our SERVPRO team understands and in most cases, we analyze each situation differently to determine the most appropriate tools and technology to use when working on your property. Drying as a process requires one to know humidity, temperature, and the various air properties - something that our technicians understand very well.

Timely evaporation of the moisture in your property is vital during the restoration. It all starts by putting in place appropriate measures to reduce the drying time and the use of extractors, air movers and dehumidifiers works towards achieving that. Air movers facilitate airflow and increase the speed of evaporation. As the moisture evaporates from surfaces, it leads to the formation of moist air. That means we have to remove the extra moisture from the air and we do that by using dehumidifiers.

The two main types of dehumidifiers that our SERVPRO technicians use are desiccant dehumidifiers and refrigerant dehumidifiers. Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemicals to absorb the moisture, while the working of refrigerant dehumidifiers has a lot of similarity to how air conditioners work. Deodorization then follows to neutralize the smells.

The goal of SERVPRO of Champaign/Urbana is to restore your contents to their preloss condition no matter the sight of the disaster. We use advanced technology to damaged items that wouldn’t be salvageable otherwise.

SERVPRO of Champaign/Urbana should be your first choice for any residential or commercial restoration needs. Our team of professionals is trained to assess the damage and potential threats, extract and contain the affected area, dry, and restore your property to preloss condition.
