Advanced Moisture Testing Equipment Using Smart Sensors
We use a new innovative technology that utilizes a series of small penetrating electronic moisture sensors that detects moisture levels deep inside your wall assembly, including inside the wood framing.
Traditional moisture meters used by most other water damage companies can only detect wet areas on the surface of the wall, and other meters like infrared thermal moisture meters really only detect temperature changes. Neither accurately identify moisture that is occurring inside the wall cavity. Intrusive (penetrating meters) testing is the only way to accurately assess moisture intrusion levels.
