How SERVPRO Cleans House
After arrival, technicians get to work evaluating the extent of damage with a wide selection of moisture measurement tools. These can include penetrative and non-penetrative moisture meters for surface moisture, and infrared cameras to assess damage behind structures. To remove water from hard flooring surfaces like cement or concrete, professionals can go in with disinfectant, wet/dry vacuums, and portable extractors to address floor moisture.
After extraction, drying can commence with the help of carefully-placed centrifugal air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers, which are highly effective for drying structural materials. Depending on how open the affected area is, polyethylene chambers may be erected to contain moisture and hasten the water removal process. After drying, professionals can disinfect the area to prevent microbial growth.
