DID YOU KNOW that water is the most essential element of life? That’s right. We all need water. We need it to bathe, to drink, to water plants and the grass, and even to enjoy recreationally, such as in a swimming pool.

But are there times when you may wish water was scarce? Yes, such as when some water ends up where it shouldn’t be, like on your valuable wood floor.

When that happens, you must clean it up quickly. If you don’t, permanent damage can occur.

Any remaining water in your valuable wood floor means there is the potential of the floor warping and then requiring expensive sanding and refinishing. Worst case scenario? You may have to replace areas of the wood floor that can’t be fixed. Ouch! That’s expensive.

Here’s the problem, though, the real challenge. When water does intrude, you can dry the wood floor with mops, towels and even that old box fan you have in the attic, but did you get it all? Is the water totally gone? You touch the floor; it seems dry, but is it really dry?

It would be nice if there was a way to determine if all moisture was removed after your home suffered from water damage.

Wait a second… is there a way?

There is! There are specialized companies that have some really cool equipment that can detect even the smallest amount of moisture. Like in carpet, in walls, in your wood floors, for example. It’s called Thermal Imaging and it can literally see through your walls and floors looking for moisture.

And that’s why calling a company specializing in moisture detection is a smart decision. Do it right. Call a water damage restoration pro at Accent American.
