Drying Science – Part 1

7/14/2021 (Permalink)

Did you know that there is a precise science behind how our production team places all drying equipment?

We use something called evaporative drying which is the process of removing moisture through evaporation and dehumidification. This includes equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers. The dry air acts as a sponge to absorb all the moisture from wet surfaces. Our dehumidifiers produce the dry air, and the air movers blow the dry air across the wet surfaces to speed up the evaporation process. Drying of wet materials needs to be completed as soon as possible to prevent further damages like microbial growth.

At SERVPRO of West Greenville County, we do this by managing 3 psychrometric conditions: humidity, airflow, and temperature. The drier the airspace, the less moisture in the air, and the lower the humidity allows the moisture to evaporate faster from all affected surfaces and materials.
