Closter Residents Trust SERVPRO with Water Mitigation of Their Homes

Water mitigation at your Closter home involves activities that prevent the damage from spreading and becoming worse over time. SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians ensure that the water damage is contained and rectified before it gets a chance to cause secondary issues. 

SERVPRO techs begin the water mitigation of your Closter home by scoping the structure to locate the moisture and determine the extent of the damage. A successful and complete water damage remediation is contingent on the ability of the SERVPRO restorers to identify hidden moisture. We use several state-of-the-art pieces of equipment for this purpose. While some equipment such as thermal image cameras helps to detect hidden moisture in the structure, others such as thermo-hygrometers help determine the air's humidity and moisture content. Moisture meters, on the other hand, give the actual moisture content of the material. 

How do Moisture Meters Help SERVPRO Experts During Water Cleanup from Your Closter Home? 

SERVPRO techs use moisture meters to determine the amount of moisture in various structural elements in your Closter home. 

The moisture meters that SERVPRO techs use are often calibrated to measure moisture in the wood. They have a wood scale ranging from 5% to 30% and indicate the percentage of water in the wood. These meters can't measure the exact moisture content of non-wood materials but can still provide valuable information regarding the relative amount of moisture in these materials. Moisture meters generally come in two forms-

  • Penetrating type- Has probes that need to be penetrated in the material to be tested.
  • Non-penetrating type- Ideal for measuring surface moisture content
