Tools for Water Damage Restoration

Water damage is more destructive than many homeowners and business owners might think. The professionals at Tidal Wave Response understand, however, that water damage can cause thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars in damages. Acting quick to clean up water damage can save your personal property and building’s foundation from extensive or irreversible damage. Whether you want to take water damage prevention, cleanup, and restoration into your own hands, or you are just curious, this article should help you understand which tools are necessary to combat water damage. If you have any specific questions or concerns, or if you would like to hire experts, then call Tidal Wave Response any time. We are proud to be available 24/7/365.

Moisture Meters

Water is a versatile element that finds its way into almost any spot. Water can even be found in the air in the form of moisture and humidity. Moisture meters, as the name suggests, are devices that measure moisture, but they can do more than just that. These devices can map and locate moisture in a variety of surfaces and even inside of surfaces. A moisture meter can help you catch a leak before it gives you a big problem.

Air Movers

There are natural processes that help mitigate the risk of water damage. Evaporation is the natural way that moisture and humidity dries. Air movers are tools that increase air circulation. By circulating air and preventing moisture in the air to settle, air movers speed up water evaporation and reduce drying time. These are especially useful if you have carpets and wooden or cloth furniture affected by water damage. There are plenty of models on the market with varying speeds, sizes, and special features.

Air Scrubbers

The air we breath is often contaminated with a plethora of pollutants and harmful particles. This is especially true if you have suffered water damage. Water is a giver of life and this life includes bacteria, mold, mildew, and other microbes. Air scrubbers are air cleaning devices that eliminate pollutants that are too small to be captured by the average air filter. These devices work by producing negative ions that attach to positively charged particles such as bacteria, pollen, and other microbes. Once the negative and positive ions bond, the newly formed, larger particle will be picked up by the air filter.


The tool that is most familiar among the general community is the dehumidifier. Humidity levels above 50% are found to host dust mites, mold, mildew, and other allergens. A dehumidifier combats this scenario by removing excess moisture and humidity from the air. These devices are generally the biggest weapons in a water damage restoration contractor’s arsenal and come in many sizes and powers.
