Commercial Water Removal Teams In Chicago Tell Us About The Various Equipment They Use
Let us help you with your commercial water damage in Chicago.
Many disasters, such as plumbing failures can take place inside your Chicago warehouse when you least expect it. Once even the smallest quarter-inch leak erupts on one of your warehouse's water pipes, several gallons of water can pour into your structure forcing you to call in a professional company such as SERVPRO to conduct commercial water removal. Our technicians can start working promptly so that the problems do not get worse over time.
Whenever moisture enters your warehouse in Chicago, commercial water removal efforts are required. The longer your warehouse's building materials and contents stay wet, the more involved the overall project can become. Our SERVPRO technicians utilize specialized equipment to help speed up the extraction and drying processes, including the following six tools.
- Moisture Sensors
Moisture sensors consist of a handle and a rod with two sharp prongs at the end that pokes into carpet and pad to test for the presence of moisture.
- Thermal Imaging Cameras
Also called infrared cameras, they can be used to detect and monitor moisture present in your warehouse's building materials.
- Penetrating Moisture Meters
Penetrating moisture meters operate on the principle of electrical conductivity by penetrating the material being tested. These can be used to detect the moisture content of drywall and wooden materials.
- Non-Penetrating Moisture Meters
These meters use conductivity, capacitance, or radiofrequency emissions to detect moisture. Since these meters do not penetrate the material being tested, their use causes no surface damage.
Thermo-Hygrometers measure the relative humidity and temperature of air masses. These instruments are used in testing the moisture content of the air in affected areas, the air in unaffected areas, the air outside, and the air being dispensed out by dehumidifiers. We can use these to come up with an end goal for the relative humidity in the affected area as well as monitor the success of our drying and dehumidification efforts.
A manometer does not measure moisture; rather, it measures the pressure of gases or vapors. The device is used to measure the difference in static air pressure between two adjacent areas.
