South Nashville Water Damage Moisture Reading
Whenever water damages your home or business, SERVPRO can help.
Water can come from any location and affect your business or home. SERVPRO technicians use specialized instruments, including moisture meters, to document and guide their work.
Moisture meters provide an enormous amount of information for being so small. When we first arrive at your home, we take initial readings from various areas of your property, testing both wet and dry locations.
We remove materials damaged by intrusive water and then treat the area.
Removing saturated materials from your property reduces the amount of moisture present. Moisture meter readings determine the amount of damage in different materials, allowing us to save materials that might only look wet on the outside.
When we treat an area that previously sustained water damage, we use EPA-registered antimicrobial agents.
Treating an area encapsulates any remaining microbes and their spores. Sprayed or painted on, these liquid antimicrobial agents dry quickly. As these agents dry, they crush the mold and spores, rendering them inert. After drying, the liquid is completely safe in all areas, including those frequented by children and pets.
Strategically placed air movers help dry out your property.
Air absorbs moisture from any errant water in an enclosed environment like your home or business, so we need to dry the air, also. We keep track of our progress by taking additional readings. Taking photographs also help document the damage and the restoration process.
We always make sure that the area is dry again before we consider the job finished.
Walls and other materials might feel dry to the touch while holding moisture inside where it can still damage your property. Each one must have its individual situation assessed again with a moisture meter to ensure that we successfully restored everything to a dry state before we consider the job completed successfully.
To verify that the area is arid, we use moisture meters.
These readings help us determine the usual dryness of your home or office. Comparing these readings with ones taken while the work progresses, and at the end of the entire process, we can verify that the process proceeds as planned.
These steps help us restore your home or building “Like it never even happened.”
We take the steps outlined by the IICRC to ensure that your property is restored and protected from additional damage. We offer 24-hour services and a contact number, (615) 331-0200, that we always answer, day and night, 365 days a year.
