Jobsite Monitoring and Documentation
The only way to keep accurate documentation of water damage claims is to monitor the site daily.
This allows us to reduce the overall cost of each water damage claim by:
Once we have responded to and evaluated a loss site utilizing moisture detection equipment and moisture meters to identify all the water, a structural drying plan is implemented. All corrective action is properly documented on EVERY Water Damage Mitigation project.
Documenting Our Water Damage Mitigations Consists of Three Areas:
1. Detailed Scope of Work Performed For Each Area Includes:
2. Psychrometry Readings from Each Area and Structural Drying Equipment
3. Types of Building Materials We Are Drying and Their Mosture Content Levels
A detailed Floor Plan of the affected areas is generated by the onsite Crew Chief. A floor plan maps the extent of water damaged building materials in each impacted area or Drying Chamber.
Moisture Content is the quantity of water in a building material; expressed in percentage by weight of water in that material. Technicians first start by finding the Drying Goal for each affected building material. According to the IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration, a DRY STANDARD is defined as "A reasonable approximation of conditions prior to the moisture intrusion, or by comparing moisture content conditions of the same type of building materials in an unaffected areas of the building."
Moisture Content levels of affected building materials are recorded to help show the drying progress of our Water Damage Mitigation projects. It also shows us when a structure is dry. Everything is accurately measured and recorded using Moisture Meters.
