Advanced Technology and Techniques
The right tools make a real difference. There's a famous quote by Abraham Lincoln that somewhat captures this idea,
“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
The axe is a tool, it's an innovation that multiplies strength. But, not all axes are created equal, a sharp axe is sufficiently more effective than a dull axe. The idea is this, the right tool used rightly increases the effectiveness of the tool holder.
Here's a restoration example: a typical tool in the restoration field is a moisture meter. Prior to the invention and use of a moisture meter the way to tackle a water damage loss was through brute force. Remove material, look for moisture. A moisture meter has changed the process; it prevents a team from removing senseless sections of wall and allows them to be targeted in a way previous generations could never dream.
This is good for everyone. The restorer does better work, the homeowner experiences costs that are controlled and limited. And the moisture meter is just one example.
Technology has changed every aspect of our work and we are committed to using the best and most recent equipment available.
Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment
Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to detect, measure, and monitor a property’s moisture levels. Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.
- An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal.
- Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation
Water Extraction Equipment
Powerful extraction equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.
- Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water.
- Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.
Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to remove the remaining moisture from ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
- High-speed air movers causes moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
- Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.
Odor Removal and Deodorization
Water and fire damage often causes powerful odors. The machines we use remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality during the restoration and cleanup process.
- Air scrubbers
- Thermal foggers and deodorization agents
Sanitizing Agents, Germicides, and Anti-Microbial Treatments
The use of OSHA-approved cleaning agents may be needed to clean and remove odors and/or contaminants on your property.
- Deodorization products control odors from excessive moisture.
- Disinfection products stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms.
