Water Leaks and Detection
Small or big leaks, they all can be big left unattended! A leak from a hole that is 1/16" in diameter in a water pipe can pour 822 gallons of water a day into your home causing extensive damage!
With any leak or spill, it’s the water you can’t see that can cause the most damage. In order to find the materials that are wet SERVPRO of North Daytona / Ormond Beach utilizes several different types of Moisture Meters. There are two main types, pin-type and pin less. Pin-type Moisture Meters measure the resistance between test pins inserted into a piece of wood/building material and use that reading as a proxy for the object’s absolute moisture level. Pin less Moisture Meters rely on the ability of moisture to inductively distort an electric field created by turning on the meter. But mainly the moisture meters will tell you when something is wet and how wet, so you can find any hidden wet spots in your home. While the surface may seem dry, the water you don’t see can contain bacteria, cause mold or rot, and cause other unseen damage that must be mitigated immediately.
