Water Damage in Your Agoura Home from a Roof Leak
Team SERVPRO Both Understands and Makes Use of Evaporation Science When Drying Out Your Home After Damage
A household maintenance issue in Agoura you may delay repairs on is a leaky roof. However, there are several reasons you should treat something like this with urgency. Besides the damage that can be done to your home’s framework, it can also compromise your insulation and promote the growth of mold.
If you have realized you have a leaky roof, some of the water damage in your Agoura home you probably have is hidden. Therefore, it may have taken you a while to notice there was a problem. Be sure to get in touch with our skilled technicians at SERVPRO so we can help you find all the damage and dry your home thoroughly.
We need to establish a drying goal and monitor the drying process daily to see if this goal is being met. A drying goal is a condition we want to bring about in affected areas of your home and how dry we want the environment to be when we are finished.
SERVPRO technicians use drier air to increase the rate of evaporation. Air with low humidity is drier air. It is essential to have a relative humidity of under 40% for an effective drying process. It usually tells us that the air is dry and thirsty and can pull more water from materials. We use specific humidity readings, however, to make sure the humidity in the affected area is decreasing, as they are more accurate than relative humidity readings.
A moisture content goal is also set. One way we do this is to establish the dry standard, which is the moisture content of dry materials in an undamaged area of your home. We take moisture content readings from dry materials here to get the dry standard. These readings are part of the drying goal for the wet areas. When wet materials have the same moisture content as items in the unaffected room, they are considered dry.
