In severely water damaged Elk Grove, buildings, a thermal hygrometer is used to monitor temperature and relative humidity. This allows the water damage technician to monitor the amount of moisture in the air and adjust drying equipment accordingly. This practice is called "psychometry".
A "Moisture Stick" is used to positively identify carpet and padding that is wet. Often the surface of the carpet will appear or feel dry but the padding and sub-floor below is saturated. This tool identifies these areas.
If water damage or flooding has occurred in your Elk Grove or Laguna California home or business, don't hesitate to call a water damage / flood damage professional. In a water damaged environment, time is of the essence. Mold can begin to germinate, given the right conditions: spores, food source, moisture, temperature, etc., within 24-48 hours, if it's environment is not altered, i.e. the introduction of dry, warm, rapidly moving air flow, and if necessary an anti-microbial. Water damage can also ruin building materials in your Elk Grove, CA home or business, if not remediated promptly. Carpet can delaminate, padding can become odorous, wood floors can warp cup and peak, door frames can swell to the point of not closing, baseboards can swell and become unsightly, ceilings can collapse or become water stained, drywall (sheetrock) can lose it's integrity, sub-flooring can warp or swell, the list goes on and on. That is why it is important to contact a professional drying service as soon as possible following the discovery of water, flood or sewage damage to your house or building.
