Equipment Spotlight: The Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers have an important role in the water damage restoration process. They are used to make the drying process a lot quicker. Once air movers have evaporated hidden moisture into the air, dehumidifiers then eliminate that moisture. Many of the dehumidifiers that SERVPRO uses come with sensors that monitor performance for automatic variable fan speed adjustments.
Dehumidifiers work like sponges by pulling in moist, humid air and discharging dry, warm air. Most dehumidifiers work similarly to how air conditioners regulate humidity. They pre-cool air that's coming in before it passes over cold evaporator coil. Then, the cold coil condenses water vapor into water that collects into a pump that is removed by an automatic pump-out system.
After a short time of these machines working together, your home or business will be free of moisture and the threat of dangerous mold. At SERVPRO, we are also sure to keep each job free of contamination by changing the filter after each job if mold or other sign of contamination was possible.
The SERVPRO drying process is just another way that we help make it "Like it never even happened."
Is Hurricane Season Over In November?
Typical Hurricane Formation Zone For November
Fall has officially begun and summer is a season of the past at this time of the year. The leaves have yellowed and the temperatures have fallen. If you're living in Florida however, the palm trees are still green and the temperature may still feel like it's the middle of the summer. Just like it could still be summer simply because of the weather it's technically also still Hurricane Season. However, there's no need to run out to your local grocery store and go into panic mode, just yet. Hurricane Season is actually in it's last month which is always in November. Although there is a chance a development could form it's a low chance. The most likely weather action that occurs around this time of the season is a typical Floridian tropical storm. Of course history has proven other wise with the last major storm happening in November of 2015. This tropical depression originating from South of The Bahamas turned into Hurricane Kate. The storm quickly strengthened and became a category 1 hurricane in just three days. Although it didn't make landfall it's massive force created interesting weather for Autumn in Ireland and Wales. November hurricanes can happen because the water temperatures haven't cooled off yet this time of year in the Caribbean and Western Atlantic. Not only do the warm waters remain but the hurricane killing shears that destroy hurricanes is still low during this time of year.
