SERVPRO Hygrometer Fun Facts
Hygrometer Fun Facts
Did you know that SERVPRO of Foxborough uses advanced technology to restore damaged properties to preloss condition more reliably, effectively, and quickly? For example, our water damage restoration technicians use scientific drying principles and state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment to detect, measure and monitor a property’s moisture levels. Hygrometers are used to measure the extent of moisture saturation in the damaged area.
The ancient Chinese constructed a prototype hygrometer in the Shang Dynasty (c.1600-1046 BCE), to study weather. Using a bar of charcoal and a clump of earth, the dry weight was recorded and then compared to the damp weight after being exposed to the air. They then measured the differences in weight to determine the humidity level.
SERVPRO technicians follow the guidelines and best practices set forth by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and are required to undergo initial rigorous and ongoing training to stay up-to-speed with technological advancements in the restoration industry.
