Tools for Water Detection

2/14/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Milwaukee North knows the right tools for the job are important and understanding how to use them to dry a structure and property effectively is even more crucial.  The right tool is vital for timely mitigation and to help get the business up and running again.  

Water can damage in two ways - absorption through direct contact and absorption of moisture from the air.  SERVPRO of Milwaukee North must understand how to alter humidity and temperature levels to produce an environment favorable for drying.

Our technicians have to locate the areas affected by water and to what extent moisture has been absorbed.  To do this they can use:

Moisture Sensors - detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls
Moisture Meters - determines actual moisture content of materials
Thermohygrometers - measure temperature and relative humidity which helps calculate specific humidity, dew point and vapor pressure.

All these tools help us start the process of making it "Like it never even happened."

Large Loss

SERVPRO of Milwaukee North is certified as a SERVPRO, Inc. Large Loss Provider! Being a Large Loss franchise doesn't come easy, first you need training on every step of a large loss.  Then you need to make a significant financial investment of stocking the franchise with hundreds of desiccants and even more hundreds of air movers and for this you also need storage space.  For SERVPRO of Milwaukee North that means shelves up as high as we can get them of equipment.  Another investment is a commercial grade desiccant that usually is on a flat bed (and has to be pulled by something capable).  This desiccant has the ability to dry out large buildings in hours instead of days and is crucial when a commercial business faces downtime due to a water loss.  Along with all this equipment and our experience, SERVPRO of Milwaukee North is ready to tackle any loss!

SERVPRO of Milwaukee North is proud to be the large loss SERVPRO in Wisconsin!
