Ideal Situations for Thermography in Clifton Park after Floods

When you acquire the services of dedicated restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team, you are also affording the most efficient recovery tools and equipment in the industry for your Clifton Park home. Flooding can cause excessive loss, even with a fast response to the emergency, so it is vital to identify the full spread and migration of water to dry out these threats wherever they get found. To accomplish this, our team must use a variety of moisture detection devices and strategies.

Knowing which technique to use in which situation can not only improve the efficiency of recovering flood damage to Clifton Park homes, but it can ultimately save the customer time and money as well. While many situations and materials can benefit from the use of surface meters or even probing moisture detectors, thermography is also a practical approach. While this can give our technicians credible information about the location of water and moisture surrounding damaged materials, it is not without some limitations.

Thermal imaging also referred to by many as infrared, can help to both inspect a property for moisture concerns and monitor the success and progress of specific drying practices. This sophisticated equipment can help to provide a fast evaluation of the migration of water throughout a structure, which can lead to a more thorough drying result. These tools can also help our SERVPRO structural drying technicians provide documentation of the success of drying efforts.

There are limitations to using these cameras, however. Thermography does not show moisture but rather temperature differences in the material, which can sometimes result in false positives on the presence of moisture. In the same regard, our professionals must utilize available images to decipher what damage might exist inside or behind damaged surfaces. The image is only a thermal look at the surface materials.

After flooding, it is critical to get a good idea of how severe water damage might be throughout a structure. Our SERVPRO of Southern Saratoga County can utilize advanced imagery techniques like infrared to gain new perspectives on present moisture and track the progress of drying efforts. No matter how we can help after a flood, give us a call at (518) 885-2620.
