Tracking Excess Moisture After Flood Damage in Crossville
SERVPRO Uses Measuring Devices for On-Going Flood Damage Scoping
Floods are often among the most difficult disasters to clean up thanks to their far-reaching and costly consequences. Floodwaters in Crossville can seep into the deepest nooks and crannies of your home, causing severe structural damage over time.
Finding hidden pockets of moisture and liquid water is equally important as repairing the initial effects of flood damage in your Crossville home, as these pockets may go undetected for years at a time until their effects are so pronounced as to be impossible to ignore. SERVPRO technicians are armed with an array of tools to help find pockets of moisture in your home and determine for certain whether or not the environment is stable.
Hand-held moisture sensors are used in Crossville flood damage jobs by our technicians to find pockets of moisture hidden in walls, floors, and furniture. Even after our thorough drying process, some moisture can remain, and these devices allow us to hunt down and eliminate the last vestiges of water in your home. Once we find signs of moisture in an area, our technicians then create a plan to address the problem, be it a simple air-drying solution or more thorough drying process involving the best technology SERVPRO has to offer.
Moisture meters are used on wet materials to determine exact moisture contents of the material. Using this data, we can plot out moisture patterns across the room and determine our approach to the solution. These devices are critical for the successful implementation of air movers, devices that create powerful wind currents in a specific direction and pattern.
Thermo-hygrometers are used both for tongue twisters and to measure atmospheric conditions in your home. These devices allow us to pinpoint exact readings of temperature and humidity, providing valuable information on how effective our dehumidification process is. Keeping track of humidity is essential, as higher readouts may lead to oxidation of metals and allow for mold growth.
