Water Damage - Mitigation Equipment
Using the proper equipment makes a difference in reducing claims loss expense. When time matters, SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton & Southern Lake Counties answer your call with fast action, trained professionals, and advanced technology and equipment.
The right tool is vital to timely mitigation. We have several tools available to return you back to preloss condition quickly at the most efficient cost.
Air Moving Equipment
Air movers are used in water damage restoration to enhance evaporation at the surface level, reducing drying time. As airflow at the surface level increases, the moisture in the air increases. This moisture is then eliminated with the use of dehumidification equipment.
By extracting water vapor from the air, dehumidifiers lower the relative humidity, which in turn increases the rate of evaporation. In a water damaged structure, dehumidifiers pull in the moist, humid air and then discharge dry, warm air. The dry air acts like a sponge absorbing moisture from wet materials.
Refrigerant dehumidifiers work similarly to air conditioners.
Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemicals called desiccants that readily absorb moisture from the air.
Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that easily penetrates sites where odor-causing residues accumulate. ULV foggers can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other difficult-to-access areas.
Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products in large volume, dense fog suitable for confined areas. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that pairs with and neutralizes odor-causing particles.
