Why SERVPRO Specialists Use Infrared Imaging Devices for Water Damage Mitigation in Dallas
There are many reasons why you can rely on the technicians at SERVPRO when your home in Dallas needs mitigation experts to protect it from harm. Our training and experience, the equipment we use, and our quick response time ensure we do the best possible work on homes to stop any existing damage from worsening or spreading to currently unaffected regions of your property Damage never clears away on its own volition. Helping families move back into their own house as quickly as possible after a disastrous event means a lot to us.
When SERVPRO technicians mitigate a home in Dallas that has water damage, we use infrared imaging devices. These handheld pieces of equipment work well in helping us locate water leaks, materials that are retaining moisture, and other damp locations within the home. Infrared imaging does this because they can pick up on any minute temperature differences in materials and on surfaces. Water cools almost all materials enough to produce the differences in temperature needed for these sensitive cameras to pick them up and show them to us on the screen.
After we locate water leaks, drips, or damp materials, we can determine the exact amount of moisture content in each with a moisture meter. While the infrared devices give us a starting location for where water is intruding, these highly accurate devices provide us with a starting point for achieving our drying goals.
After we dry the areas involved without desiccant machines, localized heaters, and air movers, we can search for microbial activity. Microbes need only a short period of exposure to water before beginning to grow. Locating colonies after we cut off their water supply and dry the area to increasingly hasten the changes in their environment facilitates any additional work needed in this area. Mitigation of your water damage situation should always include a thorough assessment of the environment, so future damage remains controlled.
