While water extraction services are much needed during water damage restoration, the building materials are still prone to significant damage. The moisture lingering in the air can still be absorbed by the porous materials, leaving ugly yellow lines on the walls and even developing mold growth if left untreated. In addition, water can hide behind walls, within the air ducts, and under the flooring, causing damage that can often go unnoticed.
But as soon as you notice water damage on any material, call ServiceMaster of Laurel; we are available to provide dehumidification services in the Laurel, MS area. Our technicians have years of experience in restoring building materials from water damage and will respond right away to prevent it from spreading. Using commercial-grade dehumidifiers, we will create the perfect conditions for your building materials to dry efficiently and effectively without sustaining additional damage in the process.
Problems and Solutions with Moisture
Because it cannot be seen, moisture can be difficult to find without a detection meter. It can also cause damage in hidden areas, often going unnoticed for long periods of time. When this occurs, the building materials can develop mold growth, causing serious health effects if any spores are ingested.
But a regular room dehumidifier won’t be able to get the job done with high moisture levels. When it comes to residential and commercial dehumidification, the technicians of ServiceMaster of Laurel are trained and experienced to use detection monitors and moisture probes to note the most affected areas. They will then strategically set up the professional drying equipment in these areas to accelerate the drying process.
Over time, they will be monitoring vapor pressure, relative humidity, and temperature to ensure that all leftover moisture is evaporated as well as the building materials drying out efficiently.
While moisture can occur anywhere with significant water damage, it is most common for it to occur in all of the following areas:
- Under floors
- Behind walls
- Storage areas
If you have already called for water damage restoration services from ServiceMaster of Laurel, the dehumidification service is also included; however, if you only had the water extracted from the building materials or just feel high amounts of moisture in the room, don’t hesitate to give us a call. As flood extraction and reconstruction are essential in water damage cleanup, dehumidification is just as important for restoring your building materials to their previous condition.
Don’t hesitate to call ServiceMaster of Laurel at (601)615-4022 for dehumidification services in the Laurel, MS area.
