Water Damage Can Be Mitigated With the Proper Drying Equipment

Among some modern technology and technical advancements at SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County are:
Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment
Too often people think they’ve removed all the water from a flood or water event and repaired the damage when they have actually missed critical steps in restoring their property. SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County follows the high and strict standards for restoration and cleaning of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We follow the IICRC S500 Water Damage Guide, a specific set of practical standards and techniques that incorporate the advanced field of psychometry. Psychometry is the manipulation of temperature and relative humidity to remove moisture and dry a property quickly and effectively. What looks dry to the eye and feels dry to the hand is often still holding enough moisture to create mold and to further damage property.
We employ advanced scientific drying principles and specialized equipment. A SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County crew can detect, measure, and monitor your property’s moisture levels. Recent advances, like infrared cameras, help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor. We also use sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters to precisely measure the extent of moisture saturation.
Water Extraction Technology
Our advanced and powerful water extraction equipment speeds the drying process. It quickly removes the bulk of the water from your home or business to help prevent further damage. SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County also uses submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water. You want water to be removed as quickly as possible to keep the damage level down. And a SERVPRO truck-mounted or a portable extraction unit performs efficient water removal.
Modern Drying Equipment
But water extraction isn’t enough. You need to dry anything that’s been partially saturated by water. SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County uses industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers. The typical drying technology available to consumers isn’t powerful enough for big jobs. Our advanced drying equipment is needed to remove the remaining (and often undetected) moisture from ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
Why use our high-speed air movers? Because the technology behind them means more moisture evaporates at a faster pace. SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.
Technology That Removes Odors And Deodorization
Water, chemical, fire, or other natural disasters often cause powerful odors. These odors are not healthy or safe. We use special techniques and technology (like air scrubbers, thermal foggers, and deodorizing agents) that removes airborne contaminants and restores air quality during the restoration and cleanup process.
Not Just Cleaned—Sanitized
When your home or business needs a thorough cleaning SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County does more than just clean. We clean, disinfect, and sanitize. We use OSHA-approved cleaning agents to clean and remove odors and contaminants from your property. Our deodorization products control odors from excessive moisture. Our disinfection products stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms.
