Drying a Home of Business After Water Damage
Drying A Home Or Building In Spokane After Water Damage.
When the expert water technicians from SERVPRO® of Spokane County enter your home after a water disaster, we have two very important questions that must be answered before drying equipment is installed. The first question is “What is Wet?” The question sounds simple enough but the answer is often more complicated. Standing water is obvious but it almost always means that hidden cavities of water exist that must also be found. These hidden areas can be found under cabinets or laminated flooring. Water can also seep under tile floors or hardwoods. Beyond the floors, water often rests inside walls and insulation and can move to adjoining rooms. Determining “What is Wet” is one of the most important questions we must answer.
The second question in our damage assessment is “How Wet Is It?” Water found under cabinets or inside walls can cause extensive damage if left untreated. Wood will warp, wet sheetrock will lose its strength and insulation can absorb large amounts of water. To answer the question “How Wet Is It,” we use sophisticated metering equipment that can measure moisture levels in areas that are out of site. We may also use a special camera capable of reading temperature variations within walls or ceilings or even in the foundation to answer this critical question.
Every Spokane water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same.
