How Does Technology Assist with Water Damage Cleanup in Haddon Heights?

4/29/2020 (Permalink)

We continually train so that we are up to date on the latest and best practices to restore your water damaged home.

Pros and Cons of Thermography Detection in Haddon Heights

A considerable amount of resources goes into having the latest and most reliable equipment to address water loss incidents in Haddon Heights. While you might suspect that most of this has to do with equipment designed to dry and restore the home, many levels of discovery and detection must happen before this drying can occur. Investing in the cutting-edge technologies that empower our restoration technicians to efficiently locate moisture in homes benefits the customer and our team simultaneously. 

Thermal imagery is one of the most readily used pieces of technology in our job scoping equipment as it can quickly give crew chiefs a better eye on the migration of water damage in Haddon Heights homes. Much like any equipment that gets used in the restoration industry, it has areas of application where it is less effective. Understanding the pros and cons of this equipment allows our responding SERVPRO technicians to make informed decisions about the best detection devices to use on damp areas of your residence. 

Benefits of Using Thermal Imagery  

  • You can get instantaneous information
  • You can get a better look at the material affected
  • Unit is portable and easy to use
  • Readings are not complicated
  • Information in real-time 

Disadvantages of Thermography 

  • You can get false positives of water damage
  • You cannot see into a wall or structural cavities 

Because of how readily this equipment gets used, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages, especially with available devices to corroborate moisture level findings with thermal imagery. The deployment of surface moisture meters and probing moisture detection tools can showcase the presence of damp pockets and the concentration of this water damage in areas we have identified with thermal imagery. 

Thorough water damage drying and restoration involves having the right information from the start. Our SERVPRO of Haddon Heights / Voorhees team puts the time and effort into having the best detection tools to make shorter work of the inspection and assessment phases before mitigation begins. Give us a call anytime that disasters strike at (856) 566-3388.
