When it comes to leak detection and water damage, sometimes the leak is not visible to the eye or touch. Often, there are leaks that not only come and go, but are hard to pinpoint. That’s why we wanted to educate you and give you some insight on what you can do to make sure you get to the bottom of those hidden, challenging leaks or water damage issues.
The problem with leaving these issues unattended to is that you could be potentially dishing out thousands of dollars in secondary damages, such as fungi growth infestation inside of your walls, mold, indoor air quality issues that can cross-contaminate, and long-term damage to flooring. If you decide later to file an insurance claim, you will more than likely get denied for your negligence of not dealing with this issue within a reasonable time and following proper protocol.
Enough negativity, though, folks! Let’s get to the reason why the Twin Home Experts are here, and that is to give you the inside of best practices that the plumbing trade has to offer.
We recently were called out to a home in Beverly Hills, where three other professionals went out and walked away from a very challenging leak that no one was able to find. The professionals wrongfully assumed that there were no damages. The client did not want to take a chance, so they found us and we came and saved the day with a simple tool called infrared camera technology. You might be wondering, how does infrared camera technology work?
Light spectrum infrared light or thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera that “sees” and “measures” thermal energy that is being emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared.
