Water Damage

This depends on the level of damage your building has experienced, but we often phase the restoration to get tenants back into the space as quickly and safely as possible. Repair time also depends on any damage done to the building’s structure, which may not be immediately evident. If the building requires no reconstruction, the restoration process can happen quickly. Many aspects of a restoration can be a continuous process. Regular duct cleaning is required to completely remove particles, annual water and moisture mapping for mold is necessary to keep it under control, and general inspections are recommended to make sure the restoration is supporting a safe and functional building.

Call your insurance company first but we recommend calling a disaster recovery professional quickly. If unattended, mold and mold-forming bacteria can spread to other areas of the property quickly causing additional damage.

An excess of water causes mold. A leaking pipe, improper insulation, or some other form of untreated water damage can cause the moisture. Once it starts growing, it can spread quickly. Best practice is to have a professional check your home for mold as there might also be asbestos, both of which can cause health issues.

Though thermal imaging is very practical to measure any insulation issues, that is not it’s only function. Thermal imaging can not only be used to detect abnormal levels of moisture either from plumbing leaks or external disasters, but can detect electrical problems as well.

To stay on top of any potential problems, an energy assessment should be completed every few years. Other situations that would be beneficial to have an energy audit would be an abnormal gas or electric bill or post-natural disaster. A thermal imaging scan has the ability to identify any potential problems with your structure.

No, due to the wall’s thickness and insulation, thermal imaging technology does not have the ability to see through walls.

It depends on the loss condition and the type of items, but more contents can be restored than most people assume. Documents, electronics, furniture, collectibles, heirlooms, and artwork are just some of the items that can be restored. 

This is the answer to the water damage question.
