Don’t Let Water Damage Destroy Your Home or Business
Water damage is destructive in a variety of ways.
Some of the damage is immediately noticeable, while other damage that’s initially hidden can be equally detrimental to people and property.
Because water tends to ‘take the path of least resistance,’ it can often be extremely difficult to visually trace the source of the problem. The inability to visually detect all the damage that water causes often results in standing water, moisture collection and dampness in areas that are perfect hosts for mold and a variety of other contaminants. When undetected and left untreated, what started as a small problem can become a major issue that threatens the health of your structure and its inhabitants. This is why even minor water damage should be addressed immediately.
There’s More than Meets the Eye
Locating the origin of a leak and identifying the final destination of an uncontained water flow requires more than a good eye. The most devastating water damage is often hidden from sight. Water can collect inside walls, roofs, ceilings and floors, causing serious structural damage even before there is any visual evidence. Moisture can collect in basements, crawlspaces, attics and even underneath vinyl siding and interior flooring.
We know that damp hidden areas are perfect hosts for mold and other contaminants. These hidden breeding grounds can quickly wreak havoc on your entire indoor environment. From structural damage to air contamination, the results can be devastating.
Water damage can result from a wide variety of issues, including:
- Burst or leaking pipes
- Plumbing issues
- Household appliances
- HVAC issues
- Buildup of collective water
- Sewage Backup
How do you find water damage you can’t see?
Building Performance Solutions has the answer.
Our professional, experienced assessors use the latest technology and innovative protocols to find water damage that would otherwise remain undetected. With state-of-the-art technology, our team can actually detect specific differences in temperature caused by the presence of moisture in walls or ceilings. With infrared radiation thermography, we put eyes on problems hidden from plain sight.
How Does Infrared Technology Work?
Infrared thermography uses a thermal camera that measures even minute variances in temperature. You’ve probably heard the term ‘hot spot’ in reference to thermal detection. These show up on video displays as red in color, while cooler areas or ‘cold spots’ appear blue. Infrared technology is so accurate that it can pinpoint moisture accumulation without having to remove drywall, shingles, siding or other structural materials.
We find the damage without adding to it.
