There is a science behind our process
Psychrometry is the study of air and its properties. This is the science SERVPRO Franchise Professionals use to create proper atmosphere for more effective drying. The restorer measures the temperature, humidity, vapor pressure and dew point for them to establish the right form of restoration.
Our experienced professional uses a variety of equipment like moisture sensors, moisture meters, Thermo-hygrometers, infrared cameras and manometers. These equipment help to tell the conditions of our surrounding that we cannot feel or see. For example when water evaporates, it cools surface temperature. Infrared cameras identify temperature differentials to locate potential water damage. Infrared technology visually displays qualitative thermal differences often caused by water damage.
After finding out what the conditions are, the restorer will determine which equipment they need to place in the areas of water damage. These equipment may include air movers or dehumidifiers. SERVPRO technicians have been well trained to understand how this science of drying works as this helps kickstart effective process of drying.
