That’s why we go out of our way to provide the help you need when you find yourself facing unforeseen water damage.
The Many Effects of Water
When most people think of water damage they picture a room or building being flooded.
Obviously excessive amounts of standing water are extremely detrimental to your belongings and to the structure of the building itself, but there is actually much more to water damage than that.
There are two basic ways that water can damage materials. One is through direct contact with surfaces and materials and the other is through absorption of moisture from the air.
When a pipe bursts, a dishwasher overflows or a storm causes flooding, most people are so focused on removing the immediate danger of standing water that they tend to overlook the secondary threat of humidity in the air.
The professionals at SERVPRO (directions to our office in the Aspen area) understand the importance of addressing both types of water damage, which is why our training includes psychrometrics, or the study of the air and its properties.
Temperature, humidity, vapor pressure and dew point are all measured to determine the exact amount of moisture in the air so that we can create the proper atmosphere for thorough drying.
If moisture in the air is not addressed, a building cannot be adequately dried and therefore conditions can still exist that will allow for continued rot and decay as well as mold growth. Removing standing water is important, but it’s only the first step in a complete water damage restoration process that will ultimately restore your property to its previous state.

It doesn’t matter if it’s your home or business that has been affected…you need to know that your property is in the best possible hands.
That means relying on a professional company that has the training and equipment to handle any kind of water related damage.
The longer that water is allowed to stay in place, the greater the amount of damage and the more costly the restoration process will be for you.
The best water damage restoration company will understand that and be ready to respond quickly to prevent the situation from getting any worse than it already is.

We employ state-of-the-art equipment to help us make that assessment, including moistures sensors and meters as well as thermo-hygrometers, which measure the temperature and relative humidity.
With the measurements from this equipment we can determine the moisture level in various surfaces such as carpets, baseboards and walls and monitor the drying process as it proceeds.
Once we’ve determined the exact extent of the problem, we can formulate a plan and begin the restoration process as quickly as possible.
