Upper West Side Water Restoration Takes Expertise 

Effective water restoration in the Upper West Side requires specialized knowledge about the water cycle and its effect on the drying process. Standing water, water vapor, the related interior humidity levels, indoor temperatures, and airflow patterns all significantly affect water-impacted materials and determine the speed at which they can be dried. 

Every Upper West Side water restoration technician at SERVPRO receives training on the water cycle and psychrometrics. This specialized knowledge gives them a distinct advantage when providing water clean-up services in the aftermath of ceiling leaks, burst pipes, and basement flooding events. Specifically, SERVPRO teaches its professionals about the following interrelated elements of the water cycle and drying process:

  • Evaporation, or the transformation of water into a vapor, occurs when temperatures are high enough, enabling air to absorb excess moisture and allow wet surfaces to dry.
  • Condensation, or when cooler air causes water vapor to change into a liquid, acts to dry moisture-laden air.
  • The dew point, or the temperature at which condensation begins, can allow airborne moisture to return to surfaces and undermine interior drying efforts.
  • Airflow, which can push out moisture-saturated air and facilitate increased evaporation of water from household surfaces
  • Vapor pressure, or the force on surfaces produced by water vapor, which can slow drying if it is high and cause less moisture-rich areas to attract more airborne moisture
  • Dehumidification, whereby machines are used to cool interior air, condense excess water vapor from it, and speed-up drying efforts 

Combined, this information gives workers a complete picture of the factors involved in water damage remediation and aids them in their work.

So, if your home ever suffers water damage, remember that help is only a phone call away. Contact your neighbors at SERVPRO of Upper West Side anytime at (917) 498-1362 for fast and professional service.
