Thermal Imaging – A Vital Part of Water Damage Restoration

Thermal imaging has become a vital part of the restoration procedures for water damage remediation. This isn’t just for show. Thermal imaging is used to locate and identify moisture on structures. When applied properly to water damage restoration processes, It can lead to immediate cost reduction and a faster turnaround time.

Thermal imaging is also used to evaluate the success of the restoration process. There has to be proof that moisture has been eliminated. It is important that property owners get the necessary proof that work has been done properly and completely. This also gives them assurance that damage has been remediated and the property is back to its pre-loss condition.

Thermal Imaging and Structural Drying

Thermal Imaging is used as an investigative means in determining hidden moisture. High moisture areas will relatively have lower temperatures. This will be detected by thermal imaging instruments like thermal cameras, monitors and sensors. When these areas are already identified, restoration companies can dry these areas thru structural drying.

It is essential that thermal imaging be done accurately. The most advanced Structural drying techniques are actually done only on the areas where moisture has been detected. Only the wet areas are dried. Accurate thermal imaging and fast structural drying will be able to bring back your water damaged property back to its pre-damaged state.

Thermal Imaging is normally performed after water damage has occurred. This is done to identify all materials where moisture has reached. Thermal Imaging identifies the remaining wet areas and then structural drying techniques will take care of the rest. When drying is complete, secondary water damage is minimized if not eliminated. This will save your furniture, books, and documents, and will stop mold growth.
