Have You Suffered From an Escape Of Water?
When a water leak occurs in your property, it can cause a tremendous amount of damage. Sometimes the source of the leak may not be obvious, but the longer it goes on the more damage it will cause. Our recommended contractors use the latest water leak detection tools. This ensures that the water leak can be dealt with as quickly as possible and limit the damage caused.
In all cases, they will install ISD dials to monitor humidity and temperature within your property. We can calculate if optimum drying is happening just by calling you for a reading, rather than having to visit you weekly and disrupt your own time. Using this system also reduces costs to insurers as less monitoring by senior techs on site have to take place.
Specialist Leak Detection Equipment
Fast water leak detection is paramount to reduce costs and the amount of time spent on repairs. Our recommended contractors utilise Testo thermal imaging as part of the repair process. The contractors will also carry out non-destructive water leak detection first to ensure all forms of escape of water are repaired. A thermal imaging camera can highlight different surface temperatures. Leaking water would be at a different temperature to other materials, such as bricks or insulation and would be able to be identified.
They also use the thermal images to identify cold spots in affected areas, so targeted drying can be used to reduce operating costs.

Trace and Access
90% of household pipes and water mains are always concealed, most of the time under floor boards or in cavity walls. This is why detecting a leak can be immensely difficult for a non-industry specialist. You may know that damage is being caused behind the scenes in your home or business premises, but you can only guess where the water leak / burst pipe is.
Trace and access is a term commonly used to describe the method used in detecting the affected areas. Using specialist equipment such as listening devices and gas detectors, we are able to swiftly treat the problem. We can locate the leak to within centimeters, which in turn allows for no unnecessary time being consumed digging to reach a pipe that is not damaged. Trace and Access is highly efficient and extremely cost effective.
Moisture reporting offers both insurers and the policyholder an audit trail and are proof of an excellent drying programme having been used. Our recommended contractors always provide a copy of this to our clients, along with our insurance backed drying certificates to both insurers and our clients for their piece of mind.
Whenever a building suffers from the effects of flood damage or an escape of water, it is always a good idea to have a moisture report completed. This will identify any damage that may have been caused now rather than later. By doing this, any work could be covered by your insurance rather than having to pay out of your own pocket at a later date.
