It's The Water You Don't See...
Even small water damages have the potential to cause serious structural and indoor air quality issues over time.
The key to avoiding costly future restoration is to handle every water problem as a real threat to your property. The proper equipment makes a measurable difference in reducing the damage expense during a water loss. When time matters most, technology and equipment must be counted on to perform.
Here are a few tools used by Professional Restoration Contractors to properly mitigate a loss.
Moisture Sensors- used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards, and walls.
Moisture Meters- used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The meter provides accurate readings to monitor the drying process.
Thermohydrometers- measures temperature and relative humidity to calculate and create an environment most conducive to drying. When handling a contaminated loss (CAT 2 or 3), it is not only important to dry the structure, but disinfect and often deodorize.
Ultra-Low-Volume (ULV) Foggers- used to atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that can easily penetrate the site where odor-causing residues may accumulate. It can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard-to-reach areas.
Thermal Foggers- dispenses solvent-based products by creating a dense fog that consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that attach to and neutralize odor causing particles.
The bottom line... ALWAYS treat a water damage seriously. Call a professional contractor that is trained and experienced in property damage restoration.
