Tools For Cleaning Flood Damage
Heavy rains can occur throughout the year in Valdese, putting your property at risk. Storm drains that are backed-up, cresting rivers, and saturated ground all can create significant flooding when there is excessive rainfall. Mudflows and flash floods are dangers which can happen after these storms, creating a threat to your home and family.
If your home in Valdese does become flooded, you need help fast to clean up the flood damage and to prevent even more damage from occurring, like mold and mildew growth. To do so, you need experienced professionals who have the right training and equipment, such as SERVPRO. We are ready to help you anytime you need.
To do the job correctly, we use various detection and monitoring devices, which let us track moisture within a structure. Moisture sensors are used to find moisture in soft materials. It has sharp probes which penetrate through carpeting and padding to show how far the water has migrated. It is an excellent tool for us to use during our initial inspection since it is easy to use and lets us know how far the water is.
Moisture meters are used by SERVPRO technicians to find the actual moisture content in different materials and to help us know if the structure is dry. These meters test underneath wood flooring and inside wall cavities with special probes. They can also check individual layers and give out readings with sensors when the meter is put on the material surfaces.
Thermo-hygrometers measure both the relative humidity and the temperature in your home. These readings are used to help us determine the specific humidity in the affected area. We compare the regions affected by moisture to unaffected areas to get appropriate readings. We also measure outside your home.
