While on site, we will walk the property to help determine all affected areas. This part is key to a successful water restoration. It’s important that both sides of every saturated wall is inspected. Typically, if water has damaged one side of the wall, the other side will be wet as well.
How is Excess Water Located?
Zona Restoration technicians use hygrometers, moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras and other meters to determine the extent of an area’s moisture saturation. This equipment can be used to find “hidden” water behind a properties ceilings, walls and flooring.
How is Excess Water Extracted?
