What Is That Wall Stain Hiding?

You spot a stain on the wall. Where is the leak coming from?

A client recently had this exact problem, so they called DRIRITE for a quick inspection.

We arrived on scene with a thermal imaging camera to "see-through-walls" and find the source of the moisture. Our cameras showed that there was a small roof leak that was allowing moisture in and to drip behind the walls un-noticed.

Once we began to remove drywall to begin the drying process, we noticed the leak must have been there for just a few days as mold had already began to develop.

We properly contained the area, dried the area, removed any mold and repaired the roof. (Did you know we're also a licensed general contractor?) After a few days, the wall and roof looks like a new home. If you ever spot a spot on the wall, ensure you call a company with a thermal imaging camera so they can detect the source of the moisture first and fix it properly so the problem never arises again.

As always, if you have any need for water damage restoration equipment, services or mold remediation, give DRIRITE of Hillsborough County a call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and a live technician (not an answering service) will be on call ready to help.
