SERVPRO’s Advanced Technology Helps Get the Job Done Right

One of the most damaging problems in many homes and businesses is water. It can be water that comes from storms, water from a pipe break, or even water left behind as the aftermath of a fire that was extinguished. Left unchecked or undetected, water can cause many unwanted issues. Fortunately, SERVPRO of South Albany County technicians have the technology to detect and address water issues. Water detection is the first step. When a home or business owner suspects water problems but is unsure where the water is at or what’s the cause, our moisture detection and measurement technology can really save the day, from infrared cameras to moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters that measure the extent of moisture saturation. Once water is located, we use various technologies to extract the water, including powerful extraction equipment that is either truck mounted or even submersible in high water situations.
