Advanced Technology and Techniques
A successful remediation and restoration project has two important elements: the right experience and the right tools.
Experience is earned over time as technicians learn through doing. But having the right tools has more to do with access and timing. The last several decades has seen an enormous amount of advancement in the tools restoration pros deploy at water and fire damage events. These advances in technology allow technicians to better target and remediate damage.
The establishment of The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in 1972 was an important step in the professionalization of the restoration industry. The IICRC established practical standards and training resources that help drive the development of new technologies.
Our SERVPRO teams have access advanced tools and equipment allowing us to best serve the greater Boston areas.
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.
