SERVPRO Moisture Reading Technology Makes Restoration More Efficient

As a restoration company that works to be among the industry’s best in Casa Grande, it often requires our teams and technicians to employ the most effective strategies to assess and ultimately restore damages present in homes and commercial structures. One such approach is the use of the thermal imagery camera that you can see in the video.

While this is just a visual representation of the tool itself, this is exactly how the equipment is used within properties to assess the presence of moisture and water damage. As even Peter tells you within this short clip, this technology “will not show you moisture content in the structure.” Instead, this technology is used to determine the temperature differences in different spots of the material.

The example from the video is drywall, which is often one of the materials that we use this technology to assess. Since it is such a common component of a home or office space, it is commonly at risk for saturation and moisture damages when water incidents occur. Once a spot has gotten identified with the thermal imagery, our SERVPRO technicians employ the secondary tool in this demonstration: the moisture meter.

This pronged hand tool can identify the presence of moisture by the tines. Inserting it into materials like the drywall can remove all doubts about the presence of water behind or coming through the drywall. This information can give our technicians a place to begin cutouts and drying efforts, which is much more concise than removing vast sections of building materials for the same result.

Water damages can spread quickly throughout a structure, leaving even the most skilled of professional restoration companies scrambling to keep up with it. Our technicians strive to offer not only the most efficient service but also the most complete and thorough restoration possible. That gets accomplished through the use of tools like what you can see in this video. If you are dealing with the effects of water damages in your home or business, trust our experienced SERVPRO of Casa Grande restoration specialists. Give us a call today at (520) 421-1894.
