Vallejo Leak Detection – 707-739-6229
Do you think you have a water leak and don't know where it's coming from? Maybe you have a dripping tap, leaking toilet or weak plumbing? Whatever the case, detecting a water leak is a very important issue, not to be taken lightly. Not only does having a leak in your home waste water, a most precious natural resource, but it can also cause damage to your home if left unattended.
Checking for water leaks is not a difficult task:
All it requires is checking your water meter reading. If a reading is taken in the morning before going out, or at night before bed, basically, taken at a time when you know water in the home will not be used for several hours, the difference in the second reading, will determine if there is a leak in your home. In other words, if the reading is significantly higher upon your second reading after a period of time of non usage of water then it is more than likely that you have a leak somewhere present in your home. Technically, if you don't have a leak, both readings should be the same or very close to one another.
If you have a Leak:
In the event that a leak is detected by you in your home call Vallejo Water Damage Services immediately. An unattended leak can cause much further damage than expected so it is better to "nip it in the bud" before serious issues arise. At Vallejo Water Damage Services, we'll confirm the potential leak, find the leak and fix the leak before any further damage is done to your home!!
Infrared Thermal Imaging
Infrared thermal imaging is a noninvasive way to effectively inspect, detect, and evaluate moisture intrusion in all types of buildings. Moisture intrusion in a building can cause havoc to the building structure and the individuals who live or work in the building. Thermal Imaging cameras use sensors to pick up infrared waves and formulate images based upon those waves. The resulting images, properly interpreted can be used to assess areas of potential moisture by evaluating differences in temperature. Temperature difference caused by evaporation, radiation, thermal bridging, infiltration/exfiltration and other sources must all be carefully evaluated. In doing so, the inspector can use the information to spot suspect areas that are not visible to the naked eye. The findings are then verified using electronic, data-logging moisture detection equipment and in some cases core samples (some flat roofs).
The use of thermal imagery during a moisture intrusion evaluation is an integral tool that can provide immediate and meaningful documentation. Infrared thermal imaging can quickly identify what building materials are impacted by the water intrusion, and visually show us how far the water migrated. By being able to visually see and locate all problem areas within the building, intelligent decisions can be made by everyone involved in the project. This typically reduces the number of days required to dry the building.
