Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

It's The Water You Don't See

7/27/2015 (Permalink)

Even small water damages have the potential

to cause serious structural and indoor air

quality issues over time.

The key to avoiding costly future restoration

is to handle every water problem as a real

threat to your property. SERVPRO® Franchise

Professionals have the equipment, training and

experience to find and dry unseen water before

secondary damages occur. The proper equipment

makes a measurable difference in reducing the

damage expense during a fire or water loss.

When time matters, technology and equipment

must be counted on to perform. Your local

SERVPRO® Franchise Professionals will answer

your call with fast action and a full arsenal of

drying equipment. Here are a few of the tools

used by your local SERVPRO® Franchise


  • Moisture Sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls.
  • Moisture Meters (pictured) are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate readings, allowing SERVPRO®  Franchise Professionals to monitor the drying process.
  • Thermohygrometers measure temperature and relative humidity. When armed with this information, SERVPRO® Franchise Professionals can calculate and create an environment most condusive to drying. When facing a contaminated water loss, it is not only important to dry the structure, but the structure must also be disinfected and often deodorized.
  • Ultra Low-Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that can easily penetrate the site where odor-causing residues may accumulate. This device can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard-to-reach areas.
  • Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products by creating a dense fog. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that attach to and neutralize odor causing particles.

The bottom line? Your local SERVPRO®

Franchise Professionals have the training and

equipment to help make it “Like it never even
