Materials that may trap hidden moisture
The water removal challenge
Water removal is particularly challenging when the leak point is enclosed or the moisture migration spreads to such areas. Identifying where there is a problem and reaching the hidden moisture are two crucial steps, yet it is difficult to tackle them without sophisticated equipment. SERVPRO invests in simple and sophisticated equipment to help resolve any issues related to moisture intrusion. For example, thermal cameras help reveal whether moisture is trapped within subfloors or areas enclosed with drywall panels.
Helpful actions against hidden moisture
- Drilling weep holes
- Ventilating cavities with warm, dry air
- Specialized extraction with drying mats
Water can be trapped within a space or absorbed into porous materials. You must drain trapped water before pursuing other restoration solutions such as drying. Our SERVPRO teams can drill weep holes into walls or ceilings to release the water trapped within the cavities. Such holes can also force dry air into the area during drying. If we discover moisture trapped beneath tiles, drying mats help facilitate extractions.
