Floor mat system for restoring water damaged flooring

One way that we can restore flooring and eliminate the need for replacing it is through the use of the floor mat system. This system utilizes a strong suction by use of mats, which are attached to a vacuum with hoses, allowing the vacuum to draw out moisture from underneath the floor. The water  becomes vapor and is released into the air. Finally, its time for the dehumidifier, which draws the vapor out of the air, turns it into water and drains it out of the room.

Water damage from Brookfield, CT water heater burst

Sometimes, we have to work in small spaces! When the water heater burst in this Brookfield, CT home, we had to pull up the bathroom floor, leaving little room for our air dryers.

That leaves the plumbing disaster clean up to our Brookfield, CT based team.

The tools we use: HYDROSENSOR

One of the tools that we use is called a hydrosensor, aka moisture probe. When the probe tips on the HydroSensor are pushed into materials to penetrate the surface, an electric current is sent between the probes. The amount of moisture present in the material determines how easily the electrical current flows from one probe to the other.
