The first step of any job is "scoping" to see what work needs to be completed. Scoping is locating the area or areas of the structure affected by water. Our technicians utilize a number of tools to assess each situation. Moisture sensors, moisture meters, and thermo-hygrometers to determine the extent of moisture the structure and its contents have absorbed. This also allows us to monitor the drying process as well confirm a structure is thoroughly dried.

The Right Tool For The Right Job

We use different tools, all with similar sounding names, for different situations and materials. Moisture sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls. Moisture meters are used to determine the actual moisture of various other materials. The moisture tester provides accurate moisture readings that allow team members to monitor the whole drying process, while thermo-hygrometers measure both air temperature and relative humidity. These two readings are used with a psychrometric chart to calculate specific humidity, dew point and vapor pressure. This equipment is essential to making the job process run efficiently which allows us to return your property to its preloss condition.
