Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The Need For Speed

5/27/2020 (Permalink)

Often in New England you will hear someone say, “Can’t control Mother Nature.” While that may be true it is possible to help her. If your Needham, MA commercial or residential property suffers water damage the drying process can be expedited. The amount of damage your property suffers is directly related to the speed in which the structure and its contents are properly dried. 

But what if you could speed up the process of drying when your home or business suffers an unfortunate event such as water damage from putting out a fire or burst water pipe. Did you know there is an actual science behind the process of drying? Before reaching for the towels, a mop, or perhaps a fan ask yourself, what do I know about Psychometrics?

Psychometrics is essential to restoring a water damaged structure to its preloss condition. The Disaster Remediation Teams at SERVPRO of Newton/Wellesley are trained in this science of drying and follow strict industry approved standards to help lower the chances of secondary damages. We will:

  • Inspect the building to detect every component that is wet to help prevent secondary damage from happening.
  • Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.
  • Speed up Mother Nature by using professional drying equipment.

A wet building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, moisture will naturally move to drier air at the surface of the material, but only if the air is drier. The issue, nature often takes too long resulting in secondary damage to the structure of your property and its contents. Out certified technicians have the training and equipment to dry tough to reach places, hardwood floors, inside walls, and so much more. Using state of the art monitoring equipment and a proven scientific process they will expedite the drying process and mitigate the risk of secondary (mold) damage.

When your commercial or residential property suffers fire damage call SERVPRO of Newton/Wellesley at (617) 332-9000. We will make it, "Like it never even happened."
