If Water Cleanup is Needed in Saugus, SERVPRO Uses Specialty Equipment to Locate Moisture

When our crew arrives on the scene, a scope gets done on the home. Scoping locates the areas where water has gone and determines the extent of absorption by the structure and the content. We use various devices in our water damage restoration services to track the moisture.

Water Restoration Inspection Devices

Water cleanup in Saugus begins with tracking the moisture, and we use the following: 

  • Moisture Sensors– Detects moisture in carpets and padding. Sharp probes penetrate through the carpeting to determine if the subfloor below has been impacted. 
  • Thermal Imaging Cameras– Infrared cameras monitor the moisture in building material. During the scope, they provide a fast evaluation of the extent of the water. They show the path the water has taken and prove successful drying at the end of the job. This device is not always precise with moisture tracking.
  • Moisture Meters-Measures the actual moisture content or level of materials. Different meters may get used for specific materials such as drywall. There are both penetrating and non-penetrating meters.
  • Hygrometers – Measures the relative humidity and temperature of air masses, helping with the drying process.

When water damage remediation is needed, these tools help our techs to do the best job possible. Whether you are dealing with a water intrusion from burst pipes, ceiling leaks, or basement flooding, our team provides water cleanup that leaves your home “Like it never even happened.” For water damage repairs, call SERVPRO of Saugus, West Lynn at (978) 744-0409 today.
