TI camera pointing at ceiling SERVPRO has advanced devices for discovering and removing water and moisture from homes in Basking Ridge--Like this thermal imaging camera

With multiple moisture meters in our inventory, thermography might not always be best for Basking Ridge.

Whether it is collecting information and data for our proprietary software like SERVPRO DryBook or tracking the progress and production of drying efforts, several moisture detection devices play a part in water restoration. In many cases, infrared and thermal imagery provide relevant results to track changing moisture conditions for placing drying instruments effectively.

What Advantages Exist with Thermal Infrared Imagery?

Thermal imagery cameras in our inventory are versatile and feature a user-friendly interface to efficiently track water damage in Basking Ridge homes. No specific skills or training are required to operate these tools, though interpretation comes with training and experience. Some of the advantages to choosing thermal infrared include:

  • Portable and lightweight
  • Tracks large surfaces simultaneously
  • It can be used to identify drying shortcomings

Is Thermography the Best Moisture Monitoring Choice for Area Homes?

Our technicians realize that there is no one set way to learn the placement and presence of moisture throughout the property. While thermal imagery can help in these situations, it is often not ideal for tracking water consistently. Surface moisture meters and hygrometers can both continually track the presence and migration of moisture to place air movers and dehumidifiers effectively.

Tracking moisture migration is critical for long-term drying solutions for damaged properties. We have several devices that can work in this regard. Our SERVPRO of Bridgewater team can help when you call (908) 222-2020.
