Non-Invasive Moisture Detection
Non-invasive moisture detection allows Restorex team members to find the amount/scope/extent of water damage without damaging finished materials of a home.
This allows us to give our customers the opportunity to understand the extent of the water damage first.
Then they can make an educated decision, with the expert advice from our trained technicians, on how to handle the water damage situation, without doing significant damage to materials inside a home or business.
We have a couple ways we can accomplish non-invasive moisture detection. These are explained below.
Non-Penetrative Moisture Meters
These types of meters are good for determining an initial extent and scope of water damage that do not cause any further damage to structural materials.
We use a GE Survey Master that has the ability to read the presence of moisture up to ½ to ¾ of an inch into a structural material.
This is a great way for us to do a quick check for the presence of moisture. It reads on a relative scale and gives a reading that we can compare to a dry piece of the same material to determine if that reading is normal or if it has absorbed excess moisture.
