air movers and dehumidifiers in the warehouse SERVPRO has air movers and dehumidifiers galore to help your Bellingham home recover from storm damage.

Bellingham Homeowners Trust SERVPRO with Water Mitigation

Water mitigation of your Bellingham home by professionals like SERVPRO involves actions taken in the aftermath of a storm to prevent further damage and protect the property. Extracting standing water on your property and drying the structure as quickly as possible is essential for mitigation.

SERVPRO techs use state-of-the-art equipment during water mitigation of your Bellingham property. Techs use commercial-grade pumps and extractors to remove water, even if it contains suspended solids. After removing the water, the SERVPRO restorers use large air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the structure.  

Using the Building Envelop During Water Restoration 

The atmospheric conditions after a storm are not ideal for drying. In such situations, the building’s envelope can profoundly affect the drying plan's effectiveness. The building envelope separates the interior of the building from the exterior.

However, buildings are not air-tight, and SERVPRO techs expect some air to leak into and out of the building. According to the ability of the envelope to keep outside conditions from affecting the drying environment, building envelopes are classified into-

  • Tight envelope: Outside conditions have little to no effect on drying conditions
  • Moderate envelope: The outside conditions somewhat influence the drying conditions inside the structure
  • Loose envelope: Outside conditions significantly affect the drying conditions

Depending on the type of building envelope present, SERVPRO techs develop unique, effective drying strategies in the given conditions. 

Movement of Air Within the Structure

Air can enter and exit the drying environment in moderate, loose building envelopes. The infiltration and air exfiltration can affect the entire building, part of a building, a single room, a wall or ceiling assembly, or even an individual cavity.

SERVPRO techs anticipate these movements and use them to improve the efficiency of the drying system.
