If your home or business has suffered from a water loss, call SERVPRO of La Grange Park/North Riverside for your water removal and restoration needs today! Our SERVPRO of La Grange Park/North Riverside crew can quickly respond, extract, and remove the water-damaged materials.

Drying / Dehumidification

Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

  • Use Monitoring Equipment to Track Progress

Drying Equipment

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
  • High-speed air movers create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, which accelerates the evaporation of moisture.
