Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Following the removal of excess water, it's important to recognize that floors and walls may still be wet despite appearing dry. Porous building materials like wood, drywall, and flooring retain moisture, leading to potential damage such as warping and mold growth if left unaddressed.

To combat this, SERVPRO of Issaquah East & North Bend employs a meticulous drying and dehumidification process. Our experts utilize precise measurements of room conditions, including temperature and relative humidity, to determine the optimal placement of air movers and dehumidifiers throughout your property. Continual monitoring with moisture meters ensures progress towards achieving appropriate drying goals.

Our approach includes:

  • Dehumidification Equipment: Industrial-grade dehumidifiers are utilized to prevent secondary water damage, safeguarding floors, walls, and furniture from swelling or warping.
  • Monitoring Equipment: We employ specialized tools to track moisture levels and assess the effectiveness of the drying process.
  • Floor and Wall Monitoring: Regular moisture level checks enable us to closely monitor the drying progress in these critical areas.

Our arsenal of drying equipment consists of:

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers: These devices effectively reduce moisture levels, mitigating material deterioration.
  • High-speed air movers: By creating targeted airflow, these powerful units expedite moisture evaporation from walls, carpets, pads, and furniture.

With this comprehensive drying and dehumidification process, SERVPRO of Issaquah East & North Bend ensures thorough moisture removal, preventing further damage and preparing the space for subsequent cleaning and repair stages. Trust us to restore your property while prioritizing its structural integrity and preventing potential mold-related issues.
