What Is a Moisture Meter?

At SERVPRO of Greenville/Troy/Andalusia, our Production Team stands prepared with the latest technology and equipment to solve any water damage scenario. Part of that technology lies within a handheld meter. It is called a Moisture Meter.

A Moisture Meter is used on various materials such as flooring, wood, drywall, etc. and we can use this instrument to help adjudicate the scope of the moisture content hidden beneath the surface of the objects that were touched by water.

If you asked yourself, “What is the importance of this?” I will explain why it’s not only important, but essential for the complete drying of your home or business after water damage.

In every scenario, water runs. It runs downhill, into cracks and crevices, absorbs into materials and sits there until someone cleans it up.

It has to be cleaned up…Each drop and then dried.

If not, then mold will begin to grow. Mold is not something you want behind your walls…It may affect your health.   

This is why the use of a Moisture Meter is one of our “go-to” tools. It allows us to see beyond what is visible with precise pin point accuracy to repair the damage done to your home or business and complete the process of drying out your home.

Like it never even happened.
