The Need: Accurate and Reliable Moisture Meters

A study published in the International Journal of Indoor Environment and Health found that indoor moisture-related issues account for 30-50% of respiratory health problems. If left unattended, mold can take hold and grow within 42 hours, resulting in the potential need for demolition in up to 20% of mold repair cases.

The sources of moisture infiltration are varied, ranging from leaky roofs and burst pipes to extinguished fires and groundwater flooding. Furthermore, contaminated water from burst pipes presents serious health risks, calling for the correct drying and remediation efforts.

Water damage restoration is a sophisticated process that demands precision and expertise. In response to these unseen dangers, Northeast Power Dry recognizes the utmost importance of accurate and reliable moisture detection:

  • Accuracy: Identifying hidden moisture is as important as addressing visible water damage. They need accurate and high-quality moisture meters to provide reliable moisture detection results.
  • Reliability: In addition to the restoration process, Northeast Power Dry must demonstrate the value of reliable equipment to insurers. In legal contexts, this reliability becomes critical, as proper documentation supports the company's work, ensuring its profitability and its clients' safety. Therefore, they need moisture meters capable of recording data and producing reports for record keeping and insurance claims.

Solution: A Comprehensive Approach to Moisture Detection

Moisture detection is a multifaceted process requiring a complete system accommodating different materials and scenarios. Delmhorst's moisture meters are renowned for their reliability, accuracy, and attachment options, making them an indispensable tool in Northeast Power Dry's toolkit. The Northeast Power Dry team is well-trained in the use of these meters, ensuring thorough and secure remediation at every worksite.

The company uses a wide variety of Delmhorst meters and probes, each designed for specific applications:

  • Short-Pin Meters: Northeast Power Dry relies on Delmhorst's short-pin moisture meters to accurately assess surface moisture in materials like drywall. These highly specialized meters detect moisture levels on surfaces, offering invaluable insights into the extent of the damage.
  • Hammer Probes: Double-layered hardwood floors require a more robust approach. The remediation team uses Delmhorst's 3-in-1 handheld moisture meter, which can be used in pin, scan, and thermo-hygrometer modes. Team members can detect moisture at a deeper level with this versatile moisture meter, ensuring that the affected area is thoroughly assessed.
  • Long-Insulated Probes: Detecting moisture in insulation can be a tough challenge. Use Delmhorst’s long insulated probes to uncover hidden moisture levels that short pins miss.
  • Scan Modes:  Northeast Power Dry uses the Navigator Pro moisture meter to check moisture levels in various materials. It traces leaks and detects exterior moisture and dry rot with unmatched accuracy and efficiency. It allows users to organize readings with advanced job definition capabilities and download them to a spreadsheet. This facilitates the required data for record keeping and insurance claims submissions.
