Strategic Deployment of Air Movers to Dry Flood Damage throughout your Wrightsville Beach Home
Let SERVPRO help limit the losses in your Wrightsville Beach home after a flood damage.
Large residences can suffer inexplicably from flooding situations. As weather alerts reach their peak, this period of winter poses a threat of flash flooding to your home. Flash floods can travel at up to nine feet per second, picking up mud, gravel, or rocks. The speed, weight, and force of rushing water can break through doors or windows, rapidly flooding the lower levels while leaving homeowners relatively powerless. You may not be able to stop floodwaters from entering your home, but you can limit the losses they cause by bringing in professional assistance.
Emergency services for flood damage are available in Wrightsville Beach all year round. The emergency aspect of water restoration depends upon removing water quickly to mitigate potential losses. However, the role of a restorer does not stop at removing standing water. Wet properties are just as likely to suffer significant losses as properties with flooding. SERVPRO uses qualified technicians to ensure the drying procedure is as effective at mitigating future losses as the removal procedure is at stopping immediate concerns.
Wet floors raise humidity levels as the moisture evaporates. As water evaporates, it can create a boundary layer of air that inhibits further evaporation. To combat this issue, SERVPRO technicians use air movers to keep air circulating and replace humid boundary layers with dryer sheets. This process can play a significant role in the length of time it takes for your property to restore to a preloss condition.
To promote constant airflow, SERVPRO technicians may use as many as twenty air-movers. Axial air movers use centrifugal motion to move larger volumes of air and use a daisy chain fitting to ensure that multiple units can be set up in a room with only one power cord. Placing air movers ensures that it is possible to circulate air throughout the home from one or two open points of outdoor air. If there are security concerns, air movers are deployed in a closed-circuit system using dehumidifiers to provide dry air.
Drying the lower levels of a fully flooded property can reduce claims and secondary losses. Contact SERVPRO of New Hanover at (910) 762-8180 now.
