Water is a very intrusive thing.  Due to the nature of a commercial building, there are many, many potential sources of water damage.  With a lot of area to cover, it is important to accurately and quickly locate the extent of the water damage, and effectively remove the water in a timely manner.

One differentiating tool to use is a thermal camera.  With a quick scan a technician can locate and validate the water intrusion.  A typical moisture meter can take awhile if there is a lot of ground to cover.  In addition, a meter can be thrown off by the electrical wiring, pipes and metal studs often found in commercial buildings.

A second specialized piece of equipment is a weight-assisted, electrically propelled rover.  Most mitigation companies will use a wand to extract water on carpeted flooring. This can take a much longer time to cover the same area and will typically still not be nearly as effective.  

At SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas, we use these latest tools/techniques among many others.  If you have a water damage issue in or around the Dallas-Fort Worth area give us a call at 214-463-5880.
