Technologies We use for Asssessing and Repairing Water Damage
Our infrared cameras are like “X-ray” vision, allowing us to see moisture in walls and ceilings that the naked eye cannot see. This will enable us to see trapped and hidden humidity, which allows us to eliminate the chances of mold growth.
Our Moisture Meter allows us to measure moisture levels in cellulose material. We’ll conduct moisture readers both before and after the dry plan in all areas of your property. If we find moisture in an unaffected area of your structure, we’ll work to dry it quickly.
This equipment works in conjuncture with our dehumidifier. Our dehumidifier pulls moisture from the air and converts it to a liquid, where we can then dump it. Our Air Mover helps to get the moisture airborne so that the dehumidifier can withdraw it.
This high-tech piece of equipment allows us to clean damaged surfaces and the air like never before. Essentially, this machine causes oxygen molecules to implode, which proves to be a useful deodorization tool. We’ll use every tool available to help restore your home.
When it comes to removing stubborn moisture post-water damage, this tool does the trick. It allows us to place direct downward pressure on a surface, such as a carpet, that may have absorbed water. The pressure causes the water to rise, making it easier to remove.
