Using Moisture Detection Equipment After A Storm Damage
Proper building after your property has been flooded is only possible if you identify all affected areas before starting the process primarily when water is the leading cause of deterioration. Leaving water in concealed areas can force you to redo the process or lead to extreme problems such as mold. Our SERVPRO of Atascadero/ Paso Robles technicians use a wide range of moisture detection tools to establish all wet areas. The common ones include:
- Thermal imaging cameras
- Moisture sensors
- Moisture meters
The rebuilding process can pose risks such as injury to the people involved or further damage to the structure, especially when tearing down damaged materials. For example, it is possible to cut power cables or plumbing lines when opening concealed areas such as walls and floors. Our SERVPRO technicians consult building plans to establish the position of utility lines. We also use different tools for different tasks, including rubber hammers, to minimize the chances of unintended damages and injuries.
