Specialized Tools for Water Damage to Take Service to the Next Level
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.
