How SERVPRO Uses Direct Heat to Help Dry Water Damaged Merrimack Homes
Direct Heat Benefits Efficient Drying in Merrimack Homes
During the winter months, Merrimack homes become very susceptible to water loss incidents. In many cases, drops in temperature can expose inadequate insulation on plumbing fixtures. Addressing these concerns as they happen can often fall to the fast response and reliable results of our SERVPRO team. We have effective practices for efficient drying after water losses, and choosing these strategies can save our customers time and money.
Specific tools available in our arsenal help to maximize drying and evaporative efforts against water damage in Merrimack homes. Electric heaters are vital to drying and restoration, especially in the worst of the winter months. There are multiple benefits to the use of direct heating functions that can get positioned at specific surfaces, fixtures, and structural elements.
One of the first advantages of the use of direct electric heating units is the impact that these devices can have on the surfaces. With substantial water loss incidents like bursting pipes in the winter months, heating units can increase the temperature of specific positions on the saturated materials to speed up the drying process. Warmer temperatures promote faster evaporation of trapped moisture and water.
Portable electric heaters also present the ability to help make the house more comfortable for our customers or our technicians throughout the restoration process. Harsh winter conditions can disable power to properties, which can lead to pipes bursting from dropping indoor temperatures. Our SERVPRO team can provide a trailered generator to utilize portable power to dry your home and heat it throughout this challenging time. Because these larger generators can provide substantial power, we can run larger heating units for the house along with direct electric heaters to increase drying productivity.
The winter months can often spell disaster for many area homes falling susceptible to cold snaps that can freeze and burst water lines. Our SERVPRO of Merrimack team has sophisticated equipment and technologies to help maximize drying efforts and make water damage, “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (603) 262-9293.
