With every job that is completed, there has to be some sort of preemptive scoping and detection to see what work needs to be completed. Scoping involves locating the areas of the structure affected by water and defining the extent to which the structure and affected contents have absorbed moisture. Detection before and after the job help ensure that the structure has been thoroughly dried. We utilize moisture sensors, moisture meters, and thermohygrometers. Moisture sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls. Moisture meters are used to determine the actual moisture of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate moisture readings that allow team members to accurately monitor the whole drying process. Lastly, the thermohygrometers measure both temperature and relative humidity. These two readings are used with a psychrometric chart to calculate specific humidity, dew point and vapor pressure. All these pieces of equipment are essential to making the job process smooth and efficient.
