Creating a Drying System During Water Cleanup

SERVPRO techs aim to create a drying system that quickly and effectively dehumidifies the air in the affected structure. An effective drying system uses dehumidifiers and air movers to remove moisture from the air and speed up the rate of drying. SERVPRO techs ensure that the dehumidification system removes the water vapor from the air as fast as, or faster than, it is being added by evaporation. 

We use two types of dehumidifying systems in Chicago homes during water damage restoration-

  • Refrigerant Dehumidifiers: These are the most common dehumidifiers used in water restoration projects and work similarly to air conditioners. When air is passed over the cooled copper coils of refrigerant dehumidifiers, the temperature of the air is brought below the dew point, which forces the water vapor to condense. 
  • Desiccant Dehumidifiers: These dehumidifiers don’t rely on the dew point principle; they use special chemicals called desiccants that absorb moisture from the air. The advantage of these dehumidifiers is that they can dry the air to a lower humidity ratio (RH.)
