A flood can be bad, but it seems to pass quickly. If it’s caused by rain, it eventually stops. If it’s a burst pipe, a plumber comes and fixes it. The homeowner breathes a sigh of relief and assumes that the problem is over. Sadly, it may be too soon for relief.
Even when the house and its contents seem dry, they may still have lingering moisture. Soaked furniture cushions take a long time to dry, and carpets conceal moisture long enough to cause floor rotting. If water has penetrated into walls or flooring, it can cause decay, mold and corrosion. Water in hidden spaces can attract bugs and other pests, and when it dries up, they will only penetrate further into the home looking for snacks and water.
Professional Water Extraction Prevents Mold
Hidden water also provides germs and fungi a place to grow, contributing to “sick building syndrome.” Many people suffer for years from what they think is hay fever, when the cause is really growing in their basement and walls.
The biggest problem is that none of these issues is detectable to the untrained homeowner until they become severe. By the time moldy smells and crawly pests start appearing, much worse things may be happening in the walls and under basement flooring.
If a professional is called at this point, the job will take much more time, trouble and money. Once they become entrenched, mold and bugs are very hard to eliminate and may return multiple times. Rotting of woodwork may require removal and repair of walls and flooring.
The key, of course, is to call a professional water remediation service right after the flooding happens. Technology has provided a way to find hidden water buildup in a home and remove it before these difficulties have a chance to appear. The science of thermal imaging can spot even small amounts of lingering moisture, and professional water extraction techniques can remove them.
Thermal Imaging Finds Hidden Water damage
Thermal imaging relies on the fact that water is a better heat conductor than building materials and the other things in a home. Using a hand-held detector, a technician can find lingering wet spots because they absorb more heat than their surroundings. A computer program is then used to construct an image from the detector’s reading.
When water-absorbent materials are detected in furniture, walls or flooring, a water extraction vacuum is used to remove it. This device is more powerful than a home vacuum and can even extract tiny droplets of water vapor from deep within objects. The water-bearing air then passes through a filtering device that removes the water and sends it into a tube for removal.
