Our Professionals Use Several Tools to Track Drying Progress in Morgan Hill Properties

Professionals on our team must use a wealth of equipment to overcome water damage incidents and provide the most efficient solutions to recover your home after an emergency. Our fast response and use of moisture detection devices can help with the placement of drying tools. 

What Are Monitoring Devices? 

We have several advanced pieces of equipment designed exclusively to make water damage restoration in Morgan Hill homes more efficient. We can thoroughly dry after emergencies by tracking water damage on the surface and beyond the visible layer of building materials.

Tracking the Movement of Moisture

Moisture migration is difficult to follow, but failure to find hidden water and moisture in building materials can cause more significant harm. Surface meters and probing moisture detectors can both show how far the water has penetrated materials. 

Identify Hidden Pockets of Water

Using thermal cameras with infrared technology equipment allows our professionals to see where hidden caches of water might be. Damp areas that are unresolved can lead to threatening situations like mold development or structural deterioration. We can track the presence of these water-damaged areas in:

  • Wall systems
  • Ceiling systems
  • Subflooring

Learn When Acceptable Moisture Content Gets Reached

Another one of the advantages of using moisture detection meters is determining the relative humidity levels and moisture content of the specific materials we are looking to restore. For wood flooring, for example, overdrying can be a real possibility. We track the progress of drying until we reach the acceptable range for moisture content. 

When it comes to restoring homes and businesses after water damage, we must rely on several pieces of technology in our inventory to track the movement of moisture and provide accurate information about the progress of drying.
