SERVPRO of Prattville Can Remove Water and Dry Out Your Commercial Business
When you own a warehouse in Prattville, it is essential to check your roof on a regular basis. If you find a pond sitting up there, your drainage is not working efficiently. Remember, each inch of water weighs around five pounds. The pooled water can cause incredible strain over time and lead to leaks and water damage inside your building. Look for any damage to the perimeter flashing, roof membranes, or penetrations to the roof like pipes, drains, and gas lines. These critical safety measures can deteriorate over time, which leaves you with several potential hazards.
Dealing with a water intrusion in your Prattville business is not a fun task. You need commercial water removal services as soon as possible to get the standing water out and dry your building to prevent additional loss. Our staff at SERVPRO of Prattville understands the urgency in a situation like this, so we are here to help whenever you need us. With the professional tools and training we have, letting us handle the problem is best to get your business back on track.
To dry your structure, we need to remove moisture from the air as well. Evaporation adds moisture to the air, and dehumidification removes the moisture. Two systems can be used for drying which is an open system or a closed system.
With an open drying system, the moist air inside your building is exchanged with the drier air outside. Opening up windows and using fans and air movers to ventilate the structure exchanges the air. These systems work only when the outside air has fewer grains per pound than the air inside. For the best conditions, outside air should have a high temperature and low relative humidity. The difference between the specific humidity of the air outside and inside is also significant.
In a closed system, SERVPRO of Prattville techs closes off the area affected by the outside air and from areas of your structure that are not affected. Dehumidification equipment is used to dehumidify the inside air. We must control the indoor environment with air movers and dehumidifiers for a closed system to work. It is easier for us to dry smaller areas, creating a drying chamber by hanging plastic sheeting or closing windows and doors. Air conditioning may be used as well to assist us in dehumidifying. By setting up a drying chamber, the drying process moves faster, and we can dry everything more thoroughly.
