Checking for Moisture

11/3/2021 (Permalink)

When SERVPRO of Thousand Oaks goes out to a water loss we use several instruments to determine if there is moisture. We will ask the customer what room the water came into. Our crew will inspect those rooms along with any surrounding rooms to make sure they are not affected. To determine moister or crew uses moister meters. The purpose of a moister meter is to display the value of moisture content or level based on electrical variance in materials. Our tech will probe area to find the base moisture content level to indicate the goal that the affected materials should meet. All structure materials have a base moisture level. The drywall can be at 5 point and the affected area will be anything more then that but not larger the 100 points. There are two types of meters non-invasive and invasive. The non-invasive scans the area without damaging the materials. Invasive probes penetrate materials. If you concerned about a water loss that occurred in your home of business, we recommend you getting It probed or moisture.
