SERVPRO of Central St. Petersburg / Pinellas Park uses specialized equipment to get your home back together after a disaster. One of those tools is the Protimeter or moisture meter. They allow us to read any material for water and moisture. As seen in this photo, this wall was 99.9% affected, resulting in the red light going off. Industry standards calls for less than 17% moisture in order for it to be dry, resulting in a green light. Anything in the middle would report back "At Risk" and a yellow light.
Moisture meters allow our technicians to pinpoint where the water begins and where the water ends. To learn more about SERVPRO's specialized equipment check out http://www.SERVPROcentralstpetersburgpinellaspark.com/water-repair-process.
