If you experience water damage in your home or business, the most important thing to do is to clean it up immediately. Most people are aware of that fact, but miss the second most important step—making sure that the source of the water damage has been located and is being repaired. With small leaks or seepage, it’s possible that they may come from multiple locations so fixing one does not necessarily mean the problem is solved.
There are multiple ways that moisture can find its way into your home. Over time, even tiny leaks can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Moisture is the leading cause of costly building upgrades today, so it is not something you want to take lightly,
One of the most efficient ways to check for leaks is to have your home inspected by a professional company that can perform moisture detection using an infrared camera. This enables them to quickly and accurately pinpoint any sources of moisture using a non-invasive technique.
The use of thermal imaging takes moisture detection to a whole new level. Even with ceilings, walls, or floors that are covered by finish materials, infrared detection can definitively show whether or not any moisture build-up is occurring. Excess moisture anywhere in a building can lead to extensive damage as well as providing an ideal environment for mold to grow. If you have seen any symptoms of possible moisture build-up including wet spots or stains, damp walls or floors, or condensation anywhere inside or outside of your home or business, get a professional experienced in moisture detection to examine it as soon as possible.
