You Return Home...And the Unthinkable Happens
You have been away for ten days on vacation, you arrive home at 9pm on a Sunday night and what do you want do? Probably get home, relax, and call it a night. But when you walk in and a pipe has burst while you are gone? That changes everything.
In order to save money, people can sometimes use their own tools to stop and dry up water damage. But, unfortunately, sometimes the unseen water in your home or office can cause the most problems. Hidden behind walls, cabinets or under flooring can be pooled water or moisture that will cause greater health risks to your home and family later on. Here at SERVPRO® of The Andovers, we have the tools to see that hidden damage and help stop potential problems.
- Moisture Sensors – these will detect moisture in carpet, walls, and baseboards.
- Moisture Meters – these determine the level of moisture in materials. These can either penetrate or not the materials, depending on what they are to help monitor the progress of drying throughout the job.
- Thermohygrometers – these devices help monitor the temperature and relative humidity in the air. These two are a large part in the drying process and help the SERVPRO® professionals determine how to adjust the process along the way.
- Infrared Cameras – this helps identify the areas that have hidden moisture and document its location. These cameras identify temperature differences in materials from where the areas are cooling (water has been evaporating) and where it is still affected by the moisture.
Our goal is helping homeowners and business owners alike return to “Like it never even happened.” When in doubt, call SERVPRO® of The Andovers.
