The Reason We Use Drying Equipment

When a home suffers a water loss, the crew of SERVPRO of Stillwater & Guthrie will often use drying equipment. One question we often get asked is why we use the drying equipment we use.

The reason we use drying equipment in your home is something called secondary damage. Secondary damage is any damage that happens after the initial damage and is the result of the original damage. One example of secondary damage is mold. Mold can grow quickly and it loves moisture. If the moisture isn't dealt with quickly, you can find yourself with a mold problem.

Using drying equipment such as fans, air movers, dehumidifiers, and HEPA filtered air scrubbers ensures that the water evaporates more quickly and mitigates the possibility of secondary damage to your home.
