How Do Professionals Get Rid of the Residual Moisture after Flood Damage to Your Tahoe Home?
SERVPRO's Expertise, Experience, and Equipment Handle Stormwater and Moisture Removal
A Flood can ruin your home if the floodwater is not promptly and efficiently removed from your property. However, removing the standing floodwater is not enough, the residual moisture remaining in your Tahoe home can cause secondary water damage.
Professional flood damage restoration experts have the necessary equipment and expertise to get rid of this residual moisture from your Tahoe home after flooding. SERVPRO experts use some of the best equipment to detect and remove the residual moisture. Here is how the residual dampness is eliminated after flood damage.
Detection of the moisture level
The first step is to determine the level of the moisture. We can use state-of-the-art moisture sensing equipment to establish the base level of moisture before we begin the mitigation process.
Moisture sensors are the equipment that can detect moisture in carpets, walls as well as in baseboards. The level of the moisture is usually measured by instruments called moisture meters. We can also use infrared camera equipment to discover hidden pockets of water and wetness inside wall voids and other recesses. SERVPRO technicians can use the information from these devices to chalk out a plan that ensures a prompt and efficient drying.
Technicians can also use a Thermohygrometer- an instrument that determines both the humidity and the temperature. The data from this equipment allows the technicians to create ideal conditions for rapid drying.
Eliminating the residual moisture
Dehumidifiers extract water vapor from the air making the air dry. The drier air is ready to pick up more moisture from the wet material, and the drying process is sped up. Air movers, on the other hand, are large blowers that increase the airflow close to the wet surface. These devices often work in tandem to expedite the return to standard RH levels inside a property.
