Drying and Dehumidification 

After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.

Drying and Dehumidification 

SERVPRO of Midtown Memphis professionals will manipulate temperature and relative humidity to remove the remaining moisture. They use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to remove water retained by building materials and other hard to access moisture. They'll carefully monitor the processes using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.
