Moisture Mapping: Our simplified approach

Our moisture mapping services use advanced technology, including FLIR thermal imaging and Hygrometers, to detect and assess moisture levels in your property. This thorough process helps identify potential problem areas before they escalate, ensuring your home remains safe and structurally sound. By pinpointing hidden moisture, we can prevent costly damage and maintain a healthy living environment.

 

Moisture: What to Look For

Moisture issues can often go unnoticed until significant damage occurs. Here are a few Moisture Warning signs for you to look out for:

  • Musty Odors: Persistent damp smells are a common sign of hidden moisture. If you notice musty odors in your home, especially in areas like basements, bathrooms, or attics, it may indicate the presence of mold or mildew caused by excess moisture.
  • Discoloration: Look for water stains or discoloration on walls, ceilings, and floors. These stains often appear yellow or brown and can indicate a leak or condensation issue that needs attention.
  • Mold Growth: Visible mold indicates a moisture problem that needs immediate attention. Mold can appear in various colors, such as black, green, or white, and can grow on walls, ceilings, and other surfaces.
  • Peeling Paint or Wallpaper: Moisture can cause paint and wallpaper to bubble and peel. This is often a sign that water is seeping into the walls, leading to potential damage and mold growth if not addressed promptly.

 

Your Action Plan

1. Inspect Regularly: Regular checks can help you catch moisture issues early. Make it a habit to inspect areas prone to moisture, such as around windows, in bathrooms, and in basements, to identify problems before they worsen.
2. Address Leaks Immediately: Fix leaks as soon as they are detected to prevent further damage. Whether it’s a dripping faucet, a leaking roof, or a cracked pipe, prompt repairs are crucial to stopping moisture from spreading.
3. Control Humidity: Use dehumidifiers and ensure proper ventilation in moisture-prone areas. Keeping indoor humidity levels below 60% helps prevent mold growth and maintains a healthier living environment.
