Benefits of Drying Your Cambridge Property After a Water Damage Scare
SERVPRO Professionally Dries Your Water-Damaged Cambridge Home
There are several techniques that water damage restoration technicians use to restore homes after such stressful events. We use specialized equipment such as hand-held extractors, wet-dry vacuums, and submersible pumps to remove as much water as possible from the building. Though all may seem well at this point, we still need to dry your home to the required moisture levels.
Our SERVPRO technicians use a combination of techniques when drying water-damaged properties in Cambridge. Some specialized equipment that we use to remove the remaining moisture and speed up drying include heaters, dehumidifiers, and air movers. We use the following equipment to check moisture levels during drying:
- Moisture Meters: They are usually available in two types: the non-invasive and pin-type. They have probes that help measure moisture content in materials such as concrete, wood, and drywall.
- Thermal Imaging Cameras: Once they detect temperature differences through infrared technology, it shows moisture exists in the area. They are suitable for detecting hidden moisture existing under floors and behind walls.
- Hygrometers: We use these devices to measure both temperature and relative humidity – the two are useful indicators when needed to determine the amount of moisture in the air. They are useful when monitoring the drying process.
- Data Loggers: We use them when it is necessary to record and store humidity and temperature levels over a long time. They also enable our SERVPRO technicians to monitor the drying process and make adjustments where necessary.
Ensuring the structure and its materials achieve the appropriate moisture levels is important for the safety and health of the occupants and helps retain the property's market value and structural integrity. It explains why our technicians put in a lot of effort to ensure everything is done right.
