Mold and Water Damage

The leak in the ceiling led to its collapse in this Guiderland rental unit. The mold patches grew from the excess moisture. The drywall panels, removed by SERVPRO techs, readied the mold remediation for disinfecting before a rebuild of the ceiling.

Moisture Mapping

Moisture Mapping

One of the key responsibilities for the guys at SERVPRO of South Albany County at any water loss is effectively mapping the water intrusion. We do this by using several tools, including thermal imaging, as seen in this picture. Thermal imaging allows us to see the cooling effect of evaporation behind drywall and other common building materials. This and many other more traditional moisture meters allow us to get a better picture on what's really going on in the hidden spaces of your home or business.
