Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification
Our Water Damage Restoration Process
Once the excess water has been removed from your East Memphis home or business, the floors and walls may appear dry, but a quick inspection by our experts will reveal they are wet to the touch. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore retain water. This retained water can cause the materials to break down, warp, or cause mold damage. Due to this, it is important not wait to call SERVPRO of East Memphis at the first sign of water.
SERVPRO of East Memphis is available 24 Hours a Day, 7 days a week.

Drying / Dehumidification
Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

- Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
