When water damage occurs in your home, it’s not always easy to determine where exactly the water has migrated to. To the naked eye, surfaces will appear dry but it can still be wet underneath the flooring or behind the drywall. SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood will use detection equipment to help determine if you still have moisture and what next steps should be.
Detection Equipment Scoping involves locating the areas of the structure affected by water and defining the extent to which the structure and contents have absorbed moisture. Moisture detection devices are also used to verify that an environment has been dried thoroughly.
- Moisture Sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls.
- Moisture Meters are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate moisture readings that enable the SERVPRO® Franchise Professional to monitor the drying process.
- Thermohydrometers measure both temperature and relative humidity. Capturing these two readings, a SERVPRO® Franchise Professional using a psychrometric chart can calculate specific humidity, dew point and vapor pressure.
