Water Damage Drying Science ? Psychrometric Chart

Did you know there is actually a science behind the process of drying? The knowledge of psychrometrics is essential to restoring a water damaged structure to its preloss condition. While your initial reaction may be to grab a few towels to mop up the mess and place a fan or two around the damaged area, your local SERVPRO of Southern Lancaster County Professionals are trained in the science of drying and follow strict industry-approved standards to help lower the chances of any secondary damages.

If your business suffers a water damage, your local SERVPRO of Southern Lancaster County Professional will:

  • Inspect the building to detect every component that is wet, to help prevent secondary damage from happening.
  • Measure how much moisture is in wet materials and monitor whether the materials are drying properly.
  • Speed up Mother Nature by using professional drying equipment.


What exactly does “speed up Mother Nature” mean? A wet building can often dry naturally because the environment always seeks equilibrium. When materials are wet, moisture will naturally move to drier air at the surface of the material–but only if the air is, indeed,
drier. The only problem is, nature often takes too long and secondary damages may occur while the building is drying out. For this reason, your local
SERVPRO of Southern Lancaster County Professionals have been trained to use top-of-the line equipment to help Mother Nature along, including equipment to help
dry hardwood floors, tough-to-reach spaces inside walls, and much more.


SERVPRO® also uses state-of-the-art monitoring
equipment and a proven scientific process to help speed the drying of your home or business.
The bottom line? Your local SERVPRO of Southern Lancaster County Professionals have the training and equipment to help make it “Like it never even happened.”
