Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Once the water has been extracted from your property, the next step is to set up a drying system to dry the remaining materials.  

To do this, our certified technicians will place air movers and dehumidifiers in your property.

The air movers assist in wicking moisture from the surfaces into the air while the dehumidifiers then remove the excess moisture from the air. 

At SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka county we have close to 500 air movers and 100 dehumidifiers at our 19,000 sf facility to ensure that no matter what the situation we have the tools and resources to efficiently dry your property!

Drying / Dehumidification

Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

  • Use Monitoring Equipment to Track Progress

Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
