Drying Out Water Damages

Water damage drying requires attention to four key factors. SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County restoration specialists train to analyze factors, so they know which drying methods and equipment they need to use every time. 

Humidity - levels are determined by the amount of water vapor in the air indoors compared to the exterior. 60 percent or higher indicates the air is saturated. This slows evaporation and increases drying time. We use dehumidifiers to reduce humidity levels. Dehumidifiers can lower moisture levels up to 20 percent in 24 hours. 

Evaporation - is the process of water converting to vapor. With large amounts of moisture, it is slow.  SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County specialists use extraction equipment to remove standing water. We augment the rate of evaporation with dehumidifiers and use exhaust fans to increase air movement, forcing moist air outside. 

 Air Movement - is increased using air movers to force air throughout affected areas and across surfaces like walls, tables, and countertops to increase the rate of evaporation. 

Temperature - is an important factor. Since the preferred range to dry home is 70 to 90 degrees, SERVPRO engages the HVAC system if available. If not, space heaters are used to raise the temperature. 

At SERVPRO we use every method available to return every property to a dry, safe condition. If you have water issue in your home, call us at 805-507-5507 to schedule a visit.

How to Protect Your Property

  • Keep insurance policies, important documents, and valuables in a safe-deposit box.  
  • Avoid building in a floodplain or on a hillside unless you elevate and reinforce your home. 
  • Place your water heater electric panel on higher floors or the attic if they are in areas of your home that may be flooded. 
  • Install check valves in sewer traps to prevent floodwater from backing up into the drains of your home. 
  • Build barriers to stop floodwater from entering the building. Such as berms, retaining walls, and levees.
  • Keep sandbags handy in case of flood
  • Seal walls in of your foundation and in basements with waterproofing compounds to avoid seepage through cracks.

Flooding occurs when rain falls over several days or there is intense or heavy rainfall over a short period of time. Severe thunderstorms during the fall and winter can bring heavy rain as well.

Flash floods occur within six hours of a rain event and they can often catch you unprepared and put you in danger. You will not always have a warning that these deadly, sudden fall floods are coming, so if you live in an area prone to flash floods, plan now to protect your family and property.

Learn more about flooding and flash flooding in your area by contacting your local emergency management office, the National Weather Service, or your local planning and zoning department. If you are at risk, take steps to reduce damage and the risk of injury or loss to your family.

If you find yourself in a disaster situation call SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County for immediate service. 805-507-5507
