SERVPRO Can Rapidly Clean Up Water Damage in Roxbury

Residential water damage is quite common. While major storms and floods may appear to cause massive water damage in homes, broken dishwashers, leaks from laundry machines, and problems with pipes. They can also lead to significant moisture problems in your Roxbury property.

Roxbury water restoration professionals have years of experience, expertise, and access to equipment to be able to fix the many unexpected issues water damage causes. Using the right equipment means these problems are repaired cost-effectively, safely, and timely. SERVPRO crews not only use proper equipment to accomplish tasks but also know how to effectively and efficiently operate them. We aim to minimize the time our customers spend out of their homes.

Some effective water damage restoration equipment include:

  • Inspection devices
  • Extraction equipment
  • Air moving equipment
  • Dehumidification equipment

To effectively restore a water-damaged structure, scoping is necessary. This involves pinpointing the areas where moisture has encroached and to what extent. SERVPRO crews use various devices to track water within a structure, including moisture sensors, thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, and thermo-hygrometers. A moisture sensor, for example, helps detect moisture in carpets and padding. The sharp probes penetrate through rugs and pads, thus determining if water has migrated through the subfloor.

Air Moving Equipment

Air-moving devices are great at combating excessive water damage. They blow large amounts of air onto the affected areas making moisture evaporate quickly. The affected area and the air mover used are the two main factors determining their effectiveness. For example, if the room is humid, the device may be counterproductive in moving moisture to unaffected areas. When drying an ample space, you need the right-sized air mover. SERVPRO restoration technicians utilize specific air movers to dry specific areas most efficiently.

Types of air-moving devices:

  • Axial air movers
  • Centrifugal air movers
  • Thrust air movers
