Cleaning Up Traumas in Seattle Properties
Traumas can take an emotional toll on the occupants of a Seattle property, and a physical one on the structure itself. Our team of highly trained specialists can work around the clock to put a tragedy or trauma behind you in the physical sense for your property so that emotional healing can begin. Because of our experience with biohazard cleaning, we have the right equipment, tools, products, and personnel to make a difference quickly for your property.
Because of the sensitive nature of many biohazard cleanup needs in Seattle, our team of SERVPRO® professionals stays ready to mobilize 24/7, much like the other divisions of our restoration troop. Our biohazard recovery professionals are among the most highly accredited and educated in our brand, as they require multiple layers of certifications through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
Substance cleaning often falls to the potent line of disinfection and antibacterial cleaning agents available in our line of OSHA-approved products. We can pre-test the effects of these strong chlorine-based or quaternary compounds before applying them everywhere in the affected rooms of the property. For those more sensitive to the often harsh smells of industrial-grade cleaning products that we use, we also have a line of botanical-based options that have a kinder smell without compromising much of the potency and strength.
Traumas can be a challenge to clean and restore for many reasons, and many times our SERVPRO team must work around active investigations from the local law enforcement to begin cleaning the damage. We can use controlled demolition techniques on damaged construction materials when necessary and prepare the area for the full-scale restoration efforts to come once the investigation has concluded.
We know that traumas that occur in your property can be devastating for those involved, and that is why you can expect empathy and compassion from our experienced SERVPRO professionals. We have powerful equipment and products that can make the physical symptoms of a tragedy “Like it never even happened.” Give our crew a call whenever you need us at (206) 362-9295.

Discussing the Use of Dehumidifiers to Respond to Commercial Water Damage in Seattle
When professional crews plan the recovery phases for a significant commercial water loss in Seattle, they rely heavily on the action of dehumidification equipment, especially after pumps and extractors suction up and contain the bulk of liquid water. In general, dehumidifiers lower the relative humidity in an area by removing water vapor from the air. Three main types of dehumidifiers have roles in professional commercial water removal. We choose among the options, sometimes changing the dehumidifier type as conditions evolve.
The most used dehumidifier type used to respond to Seattle commercial water damage works by condensing moisture. Condensation occurs after moist air moves across a cold evaporator coil 20 to 30 degrees below the dewpoint in the affected area. The vapor in the air condenses into water droplets and is then collected for disposal. An adjacent warmer coil then increases the temperature of the dryer air. Then a fan exhausts the warmer, drier air back into your business space. Refrigerant dehumidifiers can reduce humidity to approximately 40 grains per pound (GPP). GPP expresses the weight of water in a given weight of air, here a pound of dry air.
Low Grain Refrigerants (LGR)
SERVPRO® might turn to a humidifier that can reduce relative humidity levels even further in some cases. An LGR dehumidifier cools the air pulled through before exposure to the evaporator coil, permitting moisture measurements to dip below 40 GPP. An LGR provides the most energy-efficient dehumidification. This device is considered a workhorse.
SERVPRO’s desiccant dehumidifiers work differently. Moist air entering the process air inlet passes through a silica gel-filled rotor. The gel attracts water, capturing water from the air. Three-quarters of the air pulled through the desiccant dehumidifier exhausts out as warm, dry conditioned air. The dehumidifier heats the remaining quarter of the air to a higher temperature. It is rerouted to the rotor to pick up water vapor to prevent the rotor from saturation. This “reactivated” air pumps out of the dehumidifier, along with the moisture.
Conditions Determine Which Dehumidifier to Use
When the temperatures in your commercial building range between 50 and 95 degrees, SERVPRO most likely will recommend LGR or regular refrigeration dehumidification. If you have unheated spaces, the temperature can dip in our region to less than 50 degrees during the winter. A desiccant dehumidifier continues to remove moisture under those conditions. If structural materials like hardwood flooring are still wet after porous items like drywall or carpeting are dry, desiccant dehumidifiers offer appropriate drying action. They also help out in confined spaces common in commercial buildings.
