March 22, 2018

Water damages are one of the most common causes of mold, structural damages, and rot. Some damages are visible, but others need equipment to be seen. Water can destroy your home by seeping into your walls, the floor, soaking carpets and furniture, and ruining items. When water seeps into areas you cannot see, you begin to have a problem. You may have thought you removed all the water, but water under floors and inside of walls is impossible to see. This is why it is so important to hire a water restoration professional to handle your water damages. Water that is unseen can cause major damages to your home. Some of the many problems water damages can cause include:

  • Buckling of Wood Floors
  • Mold Growth
  • Structural Damages
  • Wood Rot
  • Rusting of Steel 
  • De-Laminating Wood
  • Special Items Destroyed

Certified water removal and restoration companies have special equipment to find water that is hidden. They use thermal imaging, which detects moisture is places you cannot see. The infrared equipment will seek out water and allow the water restoration professionals to remove it, easily. Thermal imagining is also perfect for finding leaks that need to be repaired. If you have recently had water damages, call a professional, such as Disaster Cleanup Services. They will be able to ensure your home is free from leaks and that all the water has been removed. 

If the water is not removed, you will eventually have to deal with mold and major structural damages. Mold is the most common problem after water damages, as it breeds in dark, damp areas. Mold is very hazardous to your health and can make your entire family sick. Call a water restoration professional as soon as you water damages. With thermal imaging, they can easily find the water, ensure it is removed, and save you from needing mold remediation or structural rebuilds.
