Once we have removed the standing water with truck-mounted pumps if necessary, our SERVPRO technician creates moisture content goals by either establishing the dry standard or recording the normal equilibrium moisture content as a baseline.
The dry standard is the moisture content of materials in an undamaged area of your building which is dry. SERVPRO staff takes moisture content readings from these dry materials.
To establish the dry standard they are looking for. These readings become part of the drying goal for the areas that are wet.
We can also take moisture content readings of dry materials in everyday situations, and then use these readings as our drying goals. We use a moisture meter and document how much moisture is in the material every time we monitor how dry the area is becoming. We compare these readings to see if the items are drying correctly.
