Glossary Of Restoration Terms

Convection:

The process of transferring heat or thermal energy from the air to a solid, liquid, or other gas via the circulation of currents from one region to another.

Radiant Heat:

The radiant heat process transfers heat energy through radiation energy waves.  Radiation passes through the air and its energy is released when it strikes an object.

Conductance:

The transfer of heat or thermal energy between neighboring molecules in a substance due to a temperature gradient. Conductance always takes place from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature, and acts to equalize the temperature differences.

Dehumidification:

The process of removing atmospheric moisture and thus lowering the relative humidity from a defined space or area.

Evaporation:

The conversion of a liquid to the vapor state by the addition of latent heat.

Relative Humidity:

The ratio of the amount of water in the air at a give temperature to the maximum amount it could hold at that temperature; expressed as a percentage.

Structural Drying:

The accelerated process or method of drying a water damaged space to minimize damage and improve results as quickly as possible.

Water Restoration:

The process of restoring a property back to pre-loss condition after sustaining any level of water damage.
