Check Out Some of SERVPRO of South Atlanta’s Commercial Drying Equipment

Water Detection Equipment - Moisture detection is a major part of preparing an estimate and scoping a water claim. Scoping involves locating the area of the structure affected by water and defining the extent to which the structure and contents have absorbed moisture. Moisture detection devices are also used to verify that an environment has been dried thoroughly.

  • Moisture Sensors like the Dri-Eaz HydroSensor II are used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls.
  • Moisture Meters like the Delmhorst Navigator Pro are used to determine the actual moisture content of various materials. The moisture tester provides accurate moisture readings that enable SERVPRO of South Atlanta to professionally monitor the drying process.
  • Thermohygrometers measure both temperature and relative humidity. Capturing these two readings, SERVPRO of South Atlanta using a psychrometric chart can calculate specific humidity, dew point and vapor pressure.

Water Extraction Equipment - The most effective method of removing moisture from a structure is extraction. This is why it is critical to respond quickly to water damage and to provide emergency mitigation services. When the water is extracted quickly, the environment can usually be dried much faster.

  • Extractors are used in cleaning carpets and upholstery and in removing water from floors following a water loss. Extractors can either be truck mounted or portable, allowing for greater access inside structures.

Air Moving Equipment - Air movers are used in water damage restoration to enhance evaporation at the surface level, thereby reducing drying time. As airflow at the surface level increases, the moisture in the air increases. This moisture is then eliminated via the use of dehumidification equipment.

Dehumidification Equipment - By extracting water vapor from the air, dehumidifiers lower the relative humidity, which in turn increases the rate of evaporation. In a water damaged structure, dehumidifiers pull in the moist, humid air and then discharge dry, warm air. The dry air acts like a sponge, absorbing moisture from wet materials. SERVPRO of South Atlanta typically uses one of two types of dehumidifiers:

  • Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) Dehumidifiers like the Phoenix R175 LGR  work similarly to air conditioners.

Deodorization Equipment - To remove unwanted odors and smells that can result after a water or fire loss, SERVPRO of South Atlanta uses a couple of different pieces of deodorization equipment to leave our customer property smelling fresh and clean.

  • Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that easily penetrates sites where odor-causing residues accumulate. The device can also be used to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other difficult-to-access areas.
  • Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products in large volume, dense fogs suitable for confined areas. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that pair with and neutralize odor-causing particles.

When choosing a restoration company, customers should choose a company that is fully insured and is certified in the restoration field like being an IICRC Certified Firm. Oftentimes when customers experience a water loss time is of the essence so choosing a name you can trust is important. Why not choose the name more Atlanta property manager/owners trust...SERVPRO of South Atlanta!
