Humidity Drying is Vital in Santa Clarita Boutiques

Several factors dramatically influence the pace and thoroughness of drying and post-water damage restoration and recovery. When your shop becomes impacted by a damage event like a burst pipe or flooding, it is critical to provide the necessary approaches to restore the business and its wares as efficiently as possible. Mitigation of these disasters typically has specific objectives and focuses, such as:

  • Drying
  • Content Recovery
  • Structural Repair
  • Cleaning

Determining the Humidity Ratio

Humidity can play a substantial role in the water damage restoration of Santa Clarita shops. To understand the efforts that must begin and the steps necessary to overcome moisture content, SERVPRO professionals must determine the humidity ratio. This number measures the current moisture content against the available dryness in the environment. The weight of this moisture is measured in grains. 

Relative Humidity

Determining the relative humidity is also important, as this is the capacity for moisture in an environment. Often this is figured as a percentage, namely how much of the atmospheric composition can be moisture grains before the air is too saturated to support more. With portable heaters, this capacity can change with factors like increasing the temperature in a drying zone. 

Processes to Lower Humidity 

Lowering the humidity of your shop can increase the efficiency of the drying process and ultimately leave less of the structure and its contents exposed. The most direct method to achieve this is the application and placement of dehumidification equipment. Low-grain refrigerant and desiccant units work to manage thick moisture content. We can simultaneously offer effective drying and humidity when dehumidifiers are placed per air movers.

From powerful drying solutions designed to remove moisture from the affected environment to the needed steps for identifying water and relative humidity concerns, our SERVPRO of Santa Clarita Valley team can help when you need it. We have skilled professionals ready 24/7 at (661) 296-4600.
