Advanced Technology and Techniques

Technology has advanced rapidly, and the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) S500 Water Damage Guide is a set of restoration standards our team at SERVPRO of East Central Cincinnati follows to inspect and dry your property.

Inspection Equipment

Our inspection equipment detects water location, measures the amount of water, and monitors moisture in your home or business. SERVPRO of East Central Cincinnati uses the following inspection equipment:

  • Infrared cameras 
  • Moisture detectors, sensors or meters
  • Hygrometers
  • Manometers and luminometers 

Water Extraction Equipment

Extraction equipment removes large amounts of water from the affected area quickly and safely. We use:

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units
  • Light wands

Drying Equipment

These remove remaining moisture and speed up the drying process. The following equipment is used to enhance evaporation:

  • High-speed air movers
  • Fans
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers

Sanitizing and Cleaning Treatments

Our products and equipment remove contaminants, control air quality and remove odors from your property. These help with the clean up process: 

  • Air scrubbers
  • Thermal foggers
  • Deodorization products
  • OSHA-approved cleaning products
  • Antimicrobial or antibacterial treatments

Contact our team of professionals at SERVPRO of East Central Cincinnati for more information and for all emergency restoration and cleanup services. 

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.
