SERVPRO Is Available for Water Damage Restoration in Poughkeepsie

If a pipe breaks inside your home, several items in your house can get wet before you know it. All of your organic materials must get dried out in less than 48 hours to prevent mold growth. Water extraction methods serve as a primary step, but some of the moisture could have soaked into your building materials and contents. Returning items to their normal moisture content levels often require applied structural drying (ASD) methods.

When conducting water damage repairs in Poughkeepsie, our SERVPRO technicians can use a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the natural evaporation and drying process. In addition to drying procedures, our technicians can also offer the following services to restore your home to its preloss state:

  • Water Damage Debris Removal
  • Restorative Carpet Cleaning
  • Water Clean Up
  • Water Extraction Services
  • Injection Wall Drying

Air movers get used during the ASD process to increase evaporation on wet surfaces and speed up drying time. Since the air touching your wet materials has high humidity, air movers can push the air away to allow for more water from your wet surfaces to evaporate. When using air movers, the goal of our SERVPRO technicians is to create airflow across all wet surfaces in your home.

If the lower section of your walls gets wet, then we can position enough air movers to create a circular air motion around the walls. We can make this counterclockwise airflow by placing the fans close to each wall at either a 15 or 45-degree angle, depending on the type of fan used. To get the best drying results, we can put one air mover for every 10 to 16 linear feet of wet walls in one direction.

If you ever suffer from pipe bursts or another water-related disaster, call SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess County at (845) 635-4550.
