Dehumidification Equipment Used by Our SERVPRO Technicians

This video explains both the role of dehumidification equipment in water loss restoration work as well as the types that our SERVPRO professionals use to get the job done. Our franchise employee, Connie Da Costa explains briefly about what a dehumidifier does and how this process can help make the entire restoration to your property more efficient.

One of the first things that you should know about these machines is that they are vital to water damage recovery. From the moment that our team begins extraction and drying efforts, the dehumidification equipment is an essential tool to bring the moisture out of the air and nearby construction materials, while exhausting hot air to help make the entire drying process more effective.

While the video seems to focus on the equipment that Connie has on the table, which is ideal for smaller and inaccessible areas like crawlspaces and wall cavities, we have several varieties that our technicians use based on the conditions that we face. The reservoir is a significant part of this selection process, as the larger the unit is, the longer that our technicians have before the unit must get purged of its collected water.

One piece of equipment that might have been too large to showcase in the video here is the desiccant dehumidifiers that our restoration team uses for substantial water loss situations, traditionally in commercial properties. These machines deal with displacement of the moisture in the environment by working steadily to pull it through quick connect hoses to purge the water outside of the building. A separate hose assembly carries dry heated air back into the affected area to expedite drying times.

Our technicians utilize industry-leading equipment like this array of dehumidifiers to help restore your property after a water damage incident has occurred. You can always depend on our SERVPRO of Campbell restoration technicians to give you all of the help you need to bring your home or business back to preloss conditions.
