Water Damage in Smithtown Is Handled by a Number of Professional Water Detection Tools

When a dishwasher or bathtub overflows in an apartment, it can mean problems for those living below and where the water intrusion happened. It is essential to get SERVPRO in quickly to mitigate the damage. 

What Inspection Devices Does SERVPRO Use During the Initial Scope?

When there is water damage to Smithtown condos, a scope of the premises has to get done before any restoration happens. A scope shows the techs what areas have been impacted by the water. Inspection equipment assists with that assessment. We use the following to locate and track moisture:

•    Infrared Cameras – Thermal imaging cameras get used in the initial inspection and to monitor the moisture in building material. They help find hidden moisture that has migrated behind structural elements.

•    Moisture Sensors – These sensors have a short probe and get used on carpet and padding. Tells the technician whether or not the water has penetrated the subflooring. 

• Thermal Hygrometers – Water removal is based on many factors, including humidity levels. Hygrometers measure the air mass temperature and relative humidity. We then know what moisture needs removing.

These are some of the equipment used in water restoration. We also use moisture meters, inspection cameras, and borescopes. We then use powerful drying equipment like air movers, portable electric heaters, and dehumidifiers.
