Heat Helps!

Jun 15, 2016

If I can’t see any water – does that mean it’s all gone? Definitely not.
ServiceMaster uses psychrometry, the science of drying, to remove more than just the water you can see.  Using specialized heat drying equipment, we are able to dry through even the toughest materials.

Just like your blow dryer, ServiceMaster uses heat drying technology to turn a soggy basement back to normal.  We use evaporation to speed up the water molecules and turn them into vapor, which allows our air movers to remove all the water from the space. We use heat to penetrate non permeable materials and coatings, like plaster and paint.  The heat and air work as a team to dry out each little nook and cranny. Even the slightest amount of moisture can lead to microbial growth in dark, damp spaces.

In order to get the most use out of our heat (and not turn your whole house into a sauna), we utilize plastic chambers or tents.  These chambers allow us to direct heat and air movement to concentrate on specific areas.  We utilize this technology to save water logged cabinets, hard wood, ceramic floors and everything in between.  Evaporating water from building materials quickly is essential.  Heat helps us to achieve dry standard in an efficient, controlled and measurable manner.
