The water damage restoration industry has experienced a surge in technology techniques and advancement due to complexity and technical demands. 

For this reason, The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) sets high and practical standards for companies offering restoration and cleaning services. 

Growing with this technology advancement and maintaining the highest standard, SERVPRO of Fayette, Haywood, Hardeman and Lauderdale Counties has helped countless homeowners in the region to restore their properties in the shortest time possible.

Here are a few types of advanced-technology equipment that have helped us deliver more efficiently:

1. Moisture Detection and measurement equipment

As water restoration professionals, SERVPRO of Fayette, Haywood, Hardeman and Lauderdale Counties now depends on some specialized and efficient equipment for accuracy to detect, measure, and monitor your home’s moisture level. We use modern equipment such as infrared cameras to detect water through a ceiling, wall, or floor. 

An infrared camera helps to detect hidden water for removal. We also use hygrometers, sensitive moisture detectors, and other innovative technology to measure the extent of moisture saturation.

2. Water extraction equipment

Our dedicated team uses powerful extraction equipment to speed up the drying process. This modern equipment helps remove the excess water that logs into your home or business spaces. It doesn’t take long for us to dry out every drop of water in your building. We have truck-mounted and portable extraction units to remove water more efficiently. 

3. Drying equipment 

Dehumidifiers and industrial strength air movers give the best results for removing the residual moisture in the floor wall and ceiling to achieve perfect drying for your home or business space. Proper drying prevents your furniture, walls, and floor from swelling and warping.

4. Odor removal and deodorization 

After water or fire damage, odor removal or deodorization is the next thing. The impact comes with exasperating odors. We use air scrubbers, thermal foggers, and deodorization agents to remove airborne contaminants and achieve the best air quality during the damage restoration and cleanup process.

We also use germicides, sanitizing agents, and anti-microbial treatments to clean and remove odors and contaminants in your home or business space. We are just a call away; contact SERVPRO of Fayette, Haywood, Hardeman and Lauderdale Counties at 731-859-4200 for our mitigation and restoration services.
