Storms happen in our area. No worries! SERVPRO can totally restore your flooded home.

SERVPRO Helps Raleigh Homeowners in Stormwater Removal 

Stormwater removal from your Raleigh home is the first step to deal with the aftermath of a storm. SERVPRO technicians use state-of-the-art water removal equipment such as truck-mounted extractors and different kinds of pumps to get the job done.

Once the SERVPRO technicians are done with the stormwater removal from your Raleigh home, the next step is to ensure that the structure and its contents are dried as fast as possible. To attain fast drying during water cleanup, SERVPRO technicians often establish a 'drying goal.' The drying goal that SERVPRO technicians institute often includes the following information:

  • Moisture content readings from dry, unaffected areas
  • Moisture reading (in percentage) for wood material
  • Moisture reading (in points) for non-wood material

How SERVPRO Technicians Set Drying Goals During Water Damage Repairs of Your Storm Damaged Raleigh Home?

The water damage restoration technicians establish the drying goal at your Raleigh home in one of the following ways:

  • Establish the dry standard-A dry standard is the moisture content of the dry unaffected area. SERVPRO techs consider a surface dry if the moisture content of the surface in the affected area reaches the same level as the dry standard. 
  • Use equilibrium moisture content (EMC)-It is the condition where the moisture content of a material is stabilized with relative humidity and temperature. At EMC, a substance neither losses nor absorbs moisture. 

Technicians use moisture measurements to determine whether their drying goal is being met according to the dry standard or EMC set in the drying goal.
