The equipment the crews needs for every job reflects the uniqueness of water damage restoration. While not all water damage requires technicians to rely on heavy duty equipment, there are some occasions when demolition tools are needed to remove compromised materials as fast and as safe as possible. If the water loss contains sewage, asbestos, or lead; PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is needed, because of the level of risk posed by contaminants is high or negligible. PPE consist of rubber gloves, rubber boots, hazmat suits, safety goggles, and a breathing device to filter potentially harmful gases and particulates.

How can you tell if moisture is in your walls?

A moisture meter (or moisture detector) is one of the most important tools for a water damage restoration specialist. This device is utilized to measure the moisture percentage of materials so that technicians know which areas are the most severely affected and need attention most urgently.  The naked eye cannot tell if water has affected porous materials, so a moisture reader is an essential piece of equipment. Hygrometers detect the relative humidity (RH) in an open environment to ascertain the level of humidity in the ambient air.

What equipment is used to dry-out your home?

If your property has standing water it needs to be extracted by using industrial grade water pumps (truck-mounted and portable), wet vacuums and sump pumps. After the water is gone industrial sized high-velocity fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers are placed. After the machines have dried out the structure, SERVPRO technicians will use antifungal and antimicrobial products to sanitize and remove any lingering odors.  Each SERVPRO vehicle is equipped with other machines and cleaning tools such as air scrubbers, ozone machines, mops, squeegees, buckets and SERVPRO cleaning chemicals.
