Water Restoration, Extraction & Structural Drying
We're there when you need us most...
Sensitive moisture meters detect trapped and hidden moisture in and below the surface of building materials of your home. Hidden and trapped moisture, if not discovered and promptly dried, is what causes most of the damage in a water damaged building.
In all water losses, a thermal hygrometer is used to monitor temperature and relative humidity. This allows the water damage technicians to monitor the amount of moisture in the air and adjust drying equipment accordingly. This practice is called "psychometry".
Water damage is a very real and scary thing. Minutes matter, that's why it's very important at the first sign on water damage to call a service professional.

If water damage or flooding has occurred in your home or business, don't hesitate to call a water damage / flood damage professional. In a water damaged environment, time is of the essence. Mold can begin to germinate, given the right conditions: spores, food source, moisture, temperature, etc., within 48-72 hours, if it's environment is not altered, i.e. the introduction of dry, warm, rapidly moving air flow, and if necessary an anti-microbial. Carpet can delaminate, padding can become odorous, wood floors can warp cup and peak, door frames can swell to the point of not closing, baseboards can swell and become unsightly, ceilings can collapse or become water stained, drywall (sheetrock) can lose it's integrity, sub-flooring can warp or swell, the list goes on and on. That is why it is important to contact a professional drying service as soon as possible following the discovery of water, flood or sewage damage to your house or building.
A non penetrating moisture meter is used whenever possible, but in some instances a penetrating moisture meter may be necessary to detect the moisture in the material to achieve a proper ending moisture content.
