Water Damage Is Not Always Easy To Find
This Edmonton home owner came home to a couple centimeters of water in their basement. That is a telltale sign that there will be water damage. But after water extraction has taken place, the signs are a lot less obvious. The "Before" photo shows a typical wall with no obvious signs of any damage. This is the normal cause for how mould grows in homes, as you cannot see within the wall cavity. At SERVPRO of Edmonton Southside we use state of the art Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) Cameras that look at infrared radiation and slight temperature changes. The dark spots in the "After" photo show areas of colder space behind the wall. This is a telltale sign that water has breached the wall and will eventually cause mould to grow.
