Even after thorough water extraction, drying may not easily take place. This is because generally, only water that is visible can be removed by using water extraction equipment. As a result, some water may still reside and become stagnant in other areas of the house, such as the floors and walls, and in furniture and room accessories like the couch, carpet, curtains, and throw pillows. This does not only cause physical damage and breakdown,but also causes molds and bacteria formation.
By using only advanced and high-grade equipment, we guarantee that water is evacuated efficiently from both the external and internal surfaces of your property. We can remove even the water that can't be seen, such as moisture in the air and those that have been absorbed by building materials (e.g. drywall, wood, baseboards).
We always test for remaining water after removal and drying/dehumidification. In fact, we take this step seriously as it is what allows us to be at par with our drying goals. Testing with various moisture testing tools gives us the guarantee that everything is completely dry -- and ready to be restored.

Monitoring is crucial such that there is likely more than one type of water damage in a given area, making removal and drying quite challenging. With on-site monitoring, however, the entire water restoration process can be performed with utmost efficiency. We do understand that every step of restoration, such as drying, involves a careful balance of equipment usage and values (temperature, time frame, intensity) monitoring. Through onsite-monitoring, our specialists get to observe the process directly and regulate its progress as needed.
Then, after water removal and drying, our team performs further monitoring to verify that everything has been dried out thoroughly. One of our highly-trained technicians conducts a series of inspections using specialized equipment and records data such as moisture saturation, humidity content, and overall surrounding condition.
Testing Process & Tools
After water extraction and drying, we use certain moisture testing equipment to determine if further drying and dehumidification are necessary. Examples of these tools are hygrometers and moisture meters. These allow us to measure the amount of remaining water that is present, the migration of water across surfaces (e.g. walls, floors, and carpets), the amount of dry time required, and even the extent of mold or mildew damage.
Furthermore, we don't just use one type of hygrometer or moisture meter. We have varying kinds for use in different locations and conditions (e.g. for taking measurements behind drywall, under baseboards, and inside building materials). Testing with these tools tells us how much more drying work still needs to be done if any, and when we can proceed with the restoration project.
