Advanced Technology and Techniques

Mold is as old as history. In fact, and interestingly enough, the first written mold remediation protocol is found in the Bible, Leviticus 14. It lists protocols on how to identify, isolate and then restore a property impacted by mold. Perhaps history's moved slower than we think. 

In modern culture technology has rapidly increased the effectiveness of our responses and the restoration process, especially in the last 100 years. Restoration technology has moved from crude instrumentation to precision instruments, and that's good news for property managers. We may love a Victorian-style home, but not so much a Victorian-era restoration technology. 

These advancements in technology and techniques allow SERVPRO of North Riverside City to restore properties back to preloss conditions quickly, reliably, and effectively. 

Our teams use use the most up to date interventions and tools; when we tackle a project, your property is restored and delivered back to you fast and efficiently.

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment

Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to detect, measure, and monitor a property’s moisture levels. Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal.
  • Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation

Water Extraction Equipment

Powerful extraction equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water. 
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.

Drying Equipment

Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to remove the remaining moisture from ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers causes moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.

Odor Removal and Deodorization

Water and fire damage often causes powerful odors. The machines we use remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality during the restoration and cleanup process.

  • Air scrubbers
  • Thermal foggers and deodorization agents

Sanitizing Agents, Germicides, and Anti-Microbial Treatments

The use of OSHA-approved cleaning agents may be needed to clean and remove odors and/or contaminants on your property.

  • Deodorization products control odors from excessive moisture.
  • Disinfection products stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms.
