Why do we use drying equipment?

Our SERVPRO of Knoxville/Farragut team was called in to help after this Knoxville, TN home had been damaged by a large water loss. Our team has gotten the questions "Why do you use drying equipment to the floors and walls?" several times, and for good reason. "Doesn't the water just evaporate on its own?" If water damage is left unattended, it can result in secondary damages to your property. Secondary damages intail damaged that happen after the initial damage. One example of secondary damages is mold growth. Adding air movement and dehumidification to the evaporation process helps quicken the drying process of the remaining water. Without water, mold cannot grow.

If you have any questions or are in need of water damage & mold damage remediation services, give our SERVPRO team a call - (865) 690-9658.
