Water damage is a scary thought for any home or business owner. There are so many causes and sources of water damage ranging from sewage drain back up to burst or frozen pipes. The naked eye alone can not identify how far or deep the damage has traveled. Working with trained professionals is essential to locating all the water damage within a property and fully understanding the science of drying the affected areas.
The Science of Drying
Identifying the severity of the water damage to your property should be performed by a professionally trained restoration technician. They should be able to explain the science of drying, also known as psychrometry, in great detail and in easy to understand terms. “Dry standard” and “Secondary Damages” are both important terms any well-trained restoration expert should be able to describe and perform during a treatment process. Structural drying requires specialized equipment and specific training to ensure your safety moving forward. Water damage can grow significantly over time so a quick and accurate response is necessary to prevent further damage. There can also be a danger of mold damage, especially if the cause of the water damage was related to sewage backup.
