Tools for Water Detection
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."
