How Drying Zones Help Water Restoration in Wilmington Homes 

In most water damage scenarios, only a portion of a Wilmington home suffers the loss effects. While you want to maintain areas where no water loss has occurred, the establishment of drying zones can help streamline the recovery process as much as possible. Our SERVPRO professionals can quickly construct these containment elements to get mitigation and restoration efforts started in your home as soon as possible. 

Containment practices have been a practical approach for both drying and water removal in Wilmington homes. We always work to produce the most effective solution for a property experiencing any loss situation. This process comes with the use of cutting-edge equipment and the employment of the latest practices that ensure the efficiency of the work getting completed. Drying zones are a way that we can better control the affected regions of the property to prevent additional damages and costlier repairs or restorations. 

Drying zones are areas where our SERVPRO team can control the flow of air, the relative humidity (RH), and even regulate the speed where affected materials get dried. We establish this segregation with thick 6-mil plastic sheeting installed between the damaged and undamaged areas of the household — the smaller that we can make this zone, the faster that extractions and drying work. Because of how rapidly moisture and water damage can spread to neighboring areas of your house, this drying zone becomes a way to prevent water damage from spreading beyond these established parameters. 

Within a drying zone, we can deploy our capable water removal equipment. Depending on the size of the damaged region, several tools could be beneficial, including our portable sump pumps, light wands, wet-vacs, and even stationary trash pumps for more significant loss scenarios. Once the area gets dried sufficiently and returned to a safe place for homeowners to be, we can deconstruct the containment to reintegrate all areas of the property. 

Our containment practices establish set borders in affected areas of your home so that our drying and extraction tools have an even more significant and productive impact. However water loss affects your home, you can count on our SERVPRO of Brandywine / Wilmington team to help you make it right again by calling (302) 762-8080.
