When it comes to documenting a drying job, The Veritas Documentation is hands down the best!
Most companies supply documentation just so they can get paid from insurance companies, which doesn’t really help with drying. For instance, when companies talk about temperatures and humidity, they are always quoting relative humidity. Relative humidity doesn’t mean squat when drying a building because every 18-20 degree you raise the temperature, you cut the relative humidity in half. RH gives absolutely no indication how much moisture is actually in the air and it does not help you dry. It is only relative to what ever the temperature is at that time.
Veritas uses the documentation to actually dry the building. Fortunately, the Veritas documentation is more in depth than what is needed by insurance companies. It is very easy to read and understand for all parties involved.
We show you exactly what the vapor pressure and moisture content of the material is at all times. We also calculate the vapor pressure of the air. The second law of thermodynamics specifically states that high pressure moves to low pressure. When we give you the vapor pressure of a wet material, then give you the vapor pressure of the air around that material, we not only know whether it is drying but we also know how fast and how to manipulate the vapor pressure differential to dry faster.
As far as mapping the moisture contents, our copyrighted moisture maps are extremely easy to understand. A line is drawn from a part of a floorplan to a box. Inside that box, it is titled with area coming from the floorplan such as drywall, subfloor, base plate etc. The box has 5 lines. Days 1 -5.
On the first date of monitoring, you have the date, temperature of material, the low moisture content and the high moisture content in the area from where the line is coming. Each day, that area is checked again and recorded on the next line in the box.
The material is dry when it reaches the dry standard indicated on day 1 in the upper right-hand corner of the moisture map. For instance, most wood in our area of the country is dry at 12%.
Of Course, our documentation also includes:
• Drying plans
• Lab results
• Thermal imaging
• Positive & Negative air flows
• Discoloration Disclosures
• Equipment Calculations & sizing
• Equipment placed on jobsite
• All of the Psychrometric readings
And everything that any third party may require.
