Identifying the Source of Moisture Intrusion
Living in a region with high humidity, and heavy rains, we have to move through water jobs with consistent precise processes. Accurately identifying the cause and source of water intrusion on an initial scope is key to a successful job completion. Our technicians use specific tech and instruments for mapping out the moisture levels in the building. Thermal imaging using a Flir Camera gives us a way to visually scan and detect areas that are showing potential moisture. The Flir is a great way to photo document a specific location. For a more detail and exact reading technicians will use a surface moisture reader that can give a reading. Although a service moisture reading and a Flir thermal reading can both fail to detect moisture when it is far behind walls or thick surfaces, for this we have to bring on an invasive moisture reader which actual penetrates through surfaces to reach wet areas. If somehow the mystery continues, we will remove a minimal piece of structural surface, to create a visual opening. There also are times that it requires a full leak detection report that examines the interior of pipes and plumbing.
