If your neighborhood in Everett sees a significant amount of rainfall, there is a chance that moisture can find its way into your house. Water can creep into your structure from lower door seals or come up into your house from the ground.

What does water do once it gets inside my home?

After you suffer from flood damage in your Everett house, the moisture can start to spread throughout your living area. To come up with the best way to remove all of the moisture from your building materials and contents, our SERVPRO technicians study how it behaves once inside your structure. The following moisture actions help describe what water does in the environment:

    •    Condensation- When water vapor turns back into a liquid, it condenses. Warmer air has a natural ability to hold in more moisture. Therefore, when warm air full of vapor cools down, the moisture condenses and turns back into a liquid, like what happens to the outside of a glass of ice water on a hot day.
    •    Dew Point- The exact temperature where the water starts to condense from the air and turn back into a liquid is known as the dew point. For example, on a warm, humid morning, a car's windshield can be covered with moisture because the glass is cold enough to drop the air touching it below the dew point. If the temperature inside your building drops below this point, then liquids can develop on the surfaces of wet items inside your house.
    •    Evaporation- This is the process of moisture moving from wet materials to the air in the form of vapor. Air movers can increase evaporation because they push wet air away from wet surfaces. Since nature always wants to seek equilibrium, moisture will always evaporate from a wet item into the drier air.

Once water enters your house in Paine Field or Silver Lake, the problems can get much worse over time. For professional assistance, call SERVPRO of South Everett at (425) 367-4484 24/7 because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
