Locating Water with a Camera
In the aftermath of a flood, your first concern will be to get rid of visible water, but you also need to find and dry any hidden water as well.
You risk secondary effects of rotten building materials or mold growth if you do not get your property fully dry.
Our production managers bring thermal imaging cameras when responding to water losses. These cameras read heat radiation and can alert us to water trapped out of sight.
If we find the temperature varies in one spot, we then use a moisture meter to determine whether the difference in temperature is caused by water.
Thermal imaging cameras allow us to manage expenses related to your water loss. If we couldn’t see behind the walls, we would have to tear the walls open to investigate or risk not drying your building correctly the first time.
After a flood you need to know what you are faced with and what it will take to recover quickly. Thermal imaging cameras show you exactly where the trouble spots are. Armed with this information you will know what is required to preserve as much of your building as possible.
At SERVPRO of Lexington-Bedford, we pride ourselves on applying the latest science and technology to drying your property after a water damage. Call us first following a flood. We have crews available around the clock to respond to your flood emergency.
