An important step that must be done before structural drying can begin is to detect where the moisture is within a structure. Moisture can be present in hidden areas that may not be visible to the eye. Speed-Dry locates moisture by using moisture detecting instruments combined with detailed knowledge of building construction.
When there is an inch of water in a house, it’s obvious that the flooring is wet. What may not be obvious however is where and how far up into the walls the water has wicked up. It can absorb into drywall and insulation behind cabinetry, tiled walls, and hidden structural areas. Likewise, when the source of the water comes from an upper floor, the water can travel laterally on its way down to the ground. It’s important to detect all of this moisture to establish an effective drying plan.
Moisture detection is also important in the case of water damage from an unknown source, such as a hidden roof leak, window leak, or hidden leak in the building envelope. Maybe you see or smell mold but you don’t know where it’s coming from. Maybe you are noticing staining on the ceiling or walls. In these situations, you need to find the source of the leak in order to fix the problem. Moisture detection and tracing is how we find hidden leaks.
