What Tools Does SERVPRO Use That Homeowners Don't Have?
When water damages occur in Huntsville homes, efficiency prevents unnecessary tear out and discarding materials and contents.
When you consider the immense undertakings of restoring damaged Huntsville homes after water disasters, you can quickly see how out of control the situation can become without the appropriate experience, tools, and available professionals. Our SERVPRO team stays ready for water emergencies by keeping pre-stocked trailers and production vehicles loaded with efficient, industry-leading tools and machines for all water restoration facets.
Part of the fast response our professionals can provide for water damage in Huntsville homes hinges on our ability to mobilize quickly when you call. We have technicians trained in each area of Water Restoration (WRT), Applied Structural Drying (ASD), Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT), and Carpet Cleaning (CCT) through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) Some of the unique tools and products our professionals can utilize on restoration tasks include:
- Squeegee Wands – Removing surface water with vacuums and attachments like these can often be one of the priorities of restoration, especially considering how pooling can damage exposed materials.
- Antimicrobial Products – Surface cleaning is also a large focal point for our restoration team, as preventative measures taken initially can reduce the potential for mold growth.
- Desiccant Dehumidifiers – While desiccants are a staple of drying in colder temperatures uncommon to Alabama, they are used because they reintroduce dry, warm air back into the work area to promote further evaporation.
How Can SERVPRO Tell the House is Dry?
We double-check our drying and restoration efforts using multiple tools. By investigating the property for further water damage signs, we can direct drying tools to these areas to prevent microbial growth. Some of these discovery devices include:
- Moisture Meters
- Thermal Imagery
Restoration of water damages can be a complicated situation for inexperienced homeowners, but our SERVPRO of North Huntsville team can help.
