SERVPRO Does Moisture Mapping in Chicago When Restoring Water-Damaged Properties

One of the most important steps during water damage repair is determining the extent of the damage. To develop a clear picture of the level of wetness within a property, technicians might decide to perform moisture mapping. Through the process, it is possible to know where the wet areas are and where the dry regions begin.

Our SERVPRO technicians use specialized infrared cameras, moisture meters, and other tools to create visual representations during water damage remediation in Chicago. We can easily detect any hidden moisture in floors, insulation, ceiling, and walls. We then develop appropriate moisture control techniques to remove the water and perform necessary repairs.

The following are some of the benefits associated with moisture mapping:

  • It helps perform a thorough assessment, which enables the water mitigation team to choose the best course of action.
  • High levels of accuracy: The tools that our SERVPRO team uses are accurate and provide precise readings.
  • Saves time: We quickly and efficiently identify areas that need attention and act with the urgency it deserves to lower the overall restoration costs.
  • Helps prevent future challenges: The mapping helps us remove moisture and prevent possible problems such as rotting and mold growth.

A successful restoration process entails detecting and removing what you might miss with the naked eye. We recommend letting a professional water damage company do a comprehensive assessment and fix the damage. It is hard to miss hidden cracks within the building, so the water might constantly flow and cause unnoticeable damage – we advise you not to let the water sit in place for long periods.
