Thermal Imaging For Water Damage Restoration

Thermal Imaging is now an important step in detecting hidden water damage concerns

Locating Hidden Water throughout your Suffolk County Commercial Building

Do you have excessive moisture plaguing your commercial building, do you have a musty odor or possible mold growth? SERVPRO professionals have IICRC certification and extensive training to handle all facets of water loss recovery in businesses throughout the Long Island area, and our technicians also work to double check to ensure success during the disaster restoration process.

Our restoration technicians utilize infrared technology and thermal imagery to assess the full extent of the damage or locate hidden moisture concerns. The technology can show our technicians areas where water might still exist based on a temperature difference. This process can also ensure that the damage has not reached other areas of the building and confirm the completion of the restoration process.

Flood Damage to Long Island Basement

As a result of severe weather and heavy rain, the water level rose and seeped into the walls and floor of this Medford, NY basement. SERVPRO of Medford went to work removing the affected areas, using fans and dehumidifiers to dry out the entire basement.

What is A Flood Cut

A flood cut is when the water restoration contractor has to cut out the drywall from your property.  The cut is made 12-18 inches above where the flood damage stopped, so that’s why it’s called a flood cut.  It is done so that we can remove the drywall and address any moisture issues behind the actual wall.

SERVPRO of Medford often uses containment barriers when restoring homes after water damage. When we block off an area of a home using professional plastic barriers, we are able to reduce the drying time of that space. In this case, a home had water damage from a refrigerator line leak. We were able to use less equipment and dry out this Patchogue home out faster, saving time and money.

SERVPRO of Medford Mitigation Equipment

SERVPRO of Medford was mitigating a water damage loss that required fans as well as a dehumidifier.

Dehumidifiers work by extracting water vapor from the air and lower the relative humidity, which in turn increases rate of evaporation. In a water damaged structure, dehumidifiers pull in the moist, humid air and then discharge dry, warm air. The dry air acts like a sponge absorbing moisture from wet materials.
