Advanced Technology and Techniques
SERVPRO of Dane County West utilizes some of the best equipment to detect, record, and monitor water inside structural materials. From moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras and flooring probes, to environmentally friendly cleaning products, more energy-efficient equipment, and utilization of DryBook™ documentation that improves drying results and restores water-damaged property faster. In addition, we adhere to the IICRC S500 Water Damage Guide’s set of practical standards that includes physical sciences such as psychrometry which involves the manipulation of temperature and relative humidity to remove moisture and dry a property quickly.
SERVPRO of Dane County West incorporates the industry's best practices to ensure our efforts are complete, accurate, and meet or exceed restoration industry standards. We are dedicated to continuous education classes, certifications, and research about processes and advancements in the industry so we can use that information to return our customer’s lives back to normal as quickly as possible after a fire or water loss.
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.
