A new member of our water clean-up team: The Desiccant!

SERVPRO of Black Hawk County is happy to have a desiccant dehumidifier as part of our clean-up efforts for water losses in the Cedar Valley & surrounding areas.

It has a sophisticated technique of using desiccant, a material that adsorbs moisture from the air, which is different than absorbs. Adsorbs draws moisture out and it STICKS to the desiccant material commonly in gel form, instead of absorbing it INTO the material.

  • Moisture collects on a Silica gel material.
  • Dry processed air is released into the affected area/room through a hose.
  • The rotor brings soaked desiccant into a “reactivation” air stream where it is heated.
  • As the desiccant dries, it releases its moisture into the reactivation air stream as water vapor which is ducted outside through another hose.
  • The cycle repeats on a continuous basis, providing a constant drying process.

New equipment to better serve you!

The square footage of an area determines the number of air movers and dehumidifiers it takes to adequately dry out the carpet, walls and ceiling of a room that has experienced a water issue. The larger the space, the more equipment is needed.

A commercial building in Waterloo, Iowa, needed SERVPRO of Black Hawk County to bring in 65 air movers and 19 dehumidifiers for over a week to get the wet problem resolved.

This picture is just a small part of the building.
