What makes SERVPRO one of the premier flood removal companies in Chicago?

Restoring your home after a flooding incident is a complex process involving several critical steps. Professionals like SERVPRO can help you minimize the damage by carrying out flood removal from your Chicago home quickly and efficiently. Not only is SERVPRO an Official Licensed Downtown Chicago Operator, but we are also part of the National Disaster Recovery Teams. However, we still manage to accommodate all local cleanups and restorations. 

SERVPRO technicians create conditions that allow speeding up of the drying process and prevent damage to materials during flood removal from your Chicago home. By carefully controlling the properties of the air in contact with the wet surfaces, the technicians can reduce the dwell time of moisture and prevent any lasting damage.

How do SERVPRO restorers use psychrometry during water damage restoration of flooded Chicago homes?

Psychrometry is the scientific study of air and its properties. Restorers use it to their advantage during flood restoration of your Chicago home. The IICRC certified SERVPRO techs understand the thermodynamics of air and its influence on the drying process. Some of the factors that the restorers manipulate to speed up drying include-

  • The temperature of the air
  • Humidity
  • Vapor pressure
  • Dew point

However, the most influential factor for drying the structure is the humidity or amount of moisture present in the air. Dry air is perhaps one of the most important tools SERVPRO techs use during water restoration. The lower the humidity of the air, the faster the drying process.

Low humidity is achieved either using dehumidifying equipment or by ventilation. SERVPRO techs use relative humidity RH as well as humidity ratio to determine the perfect conditions for drying.
