Advanced Technology and Techniques

SERVPRO of Harrisonburg/Rockingham County understands that mitigation requires quick action. The faster our specialized technicians arrive on-site to help, the better the results-including lower claim cost. Rapid advancements in the technology have allowed us to restore a property back to preloss conditions quickly, reliably, and more effectively. Our technicians are Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified and are equipped with the latest and most advanced restoration equipment in the industry. Some of the tools that our technicians are equipped with are moisture sensors, infrared cameras, HEPA vacuums, and even Dry Ice Blast Cleaners to name a few. As you can see, with the utilization of our vast resources and equipment, we are capable of handling any loss.

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment

Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to detect, measure, and monitor a property’s moisture levels. Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal.
  • Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation

Water Extraction Equipment

Powerful extraction equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water. 
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.

Drying Equipment

Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to remove the remaining moisture from ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers causes moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.

Odor Removal and Deodorization

Water and fire damage often causes powerful odors. The machines we use remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality during the restoration and cleanup process.

  • Air scrubbers
  • Thermal foggers and deodorization agents

Sanitizing Agents, Germicides, and Anti-Microbial Treatments

The use of OSHA-approved cleaning agents may be needed to clean and remove odors and/or contaminants on your property.

  • Deodorization products control odors from excessive moisture.
  • Disinfection products stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms.
