Efficient Mitigation and Restoration Get Kent Companies Back Up and Running After Water Damage. 

The water mitigation process for damaged Kent businesses can be extensive and involved. Transitioning between this vital first stage and the thorough restoration process to come involves a few transition processes to clear the building for the evaporative drying process to come.

Completing the Extraction Process 

Completing the water mitigation of Kent businesses often means a final water extraction process for the grounds. Our professionals go over the same areas previously extracted to ensure that new water has not surfaced or found its way into these areas. Drainage can sometimes leave vulnerable areas of the property that require a final extraction before drying begins.

Creating Drying Zones in the Building

Another critical stage of beginning the evaporative drying process is establishing the drying zones for the building. Containment practices prevent the migration of moisture and cross-contamination. Created drying zones allow restoration to be more efficient and directly focused on the damaged areas of the property for more effective results.

Placing Drying Equipment Appropriately

The placement of the drying tools that our professionals use can also be a careful consideration during this transition between mitigation and restoration. Three primary units are used in the evaporative drying process, not including specialty tools for extended waiting circumstances. These include:

  • Portable Heaters – Placing portable heaters in specific drying zones can increase the temperature to favorable levels, promoting faster evaporation.
  • Air Movers – Multiple air movers can impact surface materials to eliminate vapor barriers and help promote an even and constant drying.
  • Dehumidifiers – These tools are intended to manage moisture in the environment. As air movers create new environmental moisture, dehumidifiers are responsible for capturing and exhausting these particles.


As threatening as moisture damage can be, our SERVPRO of Kent team can help get evaporative drying started as soon as possible. Give us a call today at (253) 850-1500.
