Water Restoration- The Dehumidifier

Water Restoration Dehumidifier

In the South part of the U.S. the low grain dehumidifier is the work horse of most water restoration projects.  With common exterior humidity not conducive to drying, most structures affected by water damage would not dry in places like Florida, Texas, or Louisiana without the aid of additional evaporation.  We achieve this through the use of low grain dehumidifiers.  As "wet" air travels through the machine the moisture is pulled out through condensation. This reduces the moisture content of the air and produces warm, dry air ready to take on ambient moisture and once again go through the drying cycle.  Occasionally the condensate builds up to a point the reservoir  must be emptied which happens via a pump and expulsion tube commonly inserted to bath tubs, sinks, or other plumbing lines.  It is surprising to most people that in the early stages of a water restoration project 20 gallons of water can easily be pulled straight out of the air in a single day.  With only a few amp draw (similar to a common refrigerator) these efficient units make the advanced drying of today possible.  If you ever have any questions give us a call SERVPRO of Hyde Park / Central Austin
