Building Drying Out & Mould
Although you might be tempted to use a shop vacuum or call a company that only has equipment to dry carpet, you should consider that water will absorb up the walls and will penetrate through floor coverings into sub-floors, even causing water damage in rooms below. In addition, if humidity inside the structure is not controlled, items that were not damaged from the original water damage could be damaged as a result of absorbing moisture from the air. Structures that are not dried out quickly and properly can become a food source for mould growth.
AM Leak Detection employs moisture metering and thermal imaging to locate moisture that may not be visible or may be hidden behind walls or cabinets, ensuring that all wet materials are dry. We also use data loggers to monitor the ongoing drying out process.
