Once a water leak starts, it doesn’t matter how big or small it may be, It can rapidly escalate causing un-seen water damage and needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible to limit the effects it may have. This results in lower costs and minimizing any disruption. Exactly the same would apply for flood damage.

Water has the ability to not only to corrode but it can also encourage the breeding of life forms such as bacteria and mold. Then of course there are other worrying effects such as damage caused by swelling which can lead to cracks. There is also the danger that can arise from water getting into electrical components.
By the use of moisture detection and thermal equipment we identify not only the source but also the extent of any water damage that may have been caused. Also if there is any potential of secondary damage hidden from the naked eye that could form in the shape of mould spores, dry rot, structural cracking or fire risk.
With primary water damage you are usually able to instantly identify the destruction that has been caused. One of the main problems you could face is the secondary damage that may not be as clear. Moisture can quickly change from a liquid to water vapour which can then travel around the property. Once this vapour re-condenses it can then be absorbed by porous materials.
It is essential that all water damage repairs are completed professionally and thoroughly from the assessment of secondary damage. Otherwise this may cause damage that may not be noticed for many years to come.
