Water Restoration Includes Humidity Management

The water restoration and recovery processes involve many approaches and focus, especially in more significant commercial properties like small businesses and shops throughout the city. As helpful as the process of removing moisture content from the environment can be, we must also prioritize other mitigative strategies first, such as:

  • Structural Repair
  • Drying
  • Cleaning
  • Content Recovery

The Impact of a Humidity Ratio

Moisture content in the environment, or humidity as it is more commonly known, can significantly influence water restoration for Lynn shops. Overcoming this threat to the property begins with understanding the current moisture concerns against the dryness in the same environment. This measure of moisture grains in the atmosphere and work areas against the dryness of the room is known as the humidity ratio. 

What is Relative Humidity?

A related term and consideration of the responding SERVPRO professionals working to eliminate moisture and water concerns in your shop is the relative humidity of the work areas. This RH is the capacity for moisture in a particular environment. This is measured as a percentage and calculates when the air in the room has become too saturated to allow drying to continue. Warmer temperatures can increase relative humidity and allow connected drying to continue.  

How Can SERVPRO Lower Humidity?

The management of environmental moisture must be a priority of SERVPRO professionals when drying gets underway. The placement and frequency of desiccant and refrigerant dehumidifiers can be critical in trapping humidity and collecting water grains in the air for discarding. Multiple dehumidifiers can operate simultaneously, which might be necessary depending on the air movers' volume. 

Humidity is one of the more challenging aspects to regulate during water restoration and post-disaster cleanup of shops. As a Large Loss recovery team, SERVPRO of Lynn / Lynnfield has hundreds of drying tools and dehumidifiers to manage these persistent concerns. Give us a call now at (781) 593-6663.
