Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Now that all the wet materials are out of the home, we can now start drying out your home before there is any chance for mold growth.  SERVPRO of Greater Smithtown stores all the necessary pieces of equipment at our warehouse to dry out your home.  On typical jobs the most common equipment used are dehumidifiers and air movers.  Our technicians have the proper training and knowledge of how to position each piece of equipment to ensure that your house is being dried out properly.  We like to check equipment daily to see how the dry process is going and to rearrange any equipment if necessary.

Drying / Dehumidification

Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
