Thermal Scan for Source of Water Damage

You are currently viewing Thermal Scan for Source of Water Damage

ServiceMaster by Wright received a call from a condo owner in Naples, Florida, for a thermal scan. A Thermal scan helps detect if there is water behind walls and under floors. Upon doing the thermal scan, the property manager wanted us to open up the walls and remove base and trim and cut some drywall out. Upon doing this ServiceMaster found some mold present and metal studs were rusted out.

ServiceMaster then plugged up drain in the bathtub and filled it up with water did not see where the water was leaking. ServiceMaster called out a water detection company to help find the leak. Once the leak was detected and fixed, ServiceMaster started the drying process by having technicians set up dehumidifiers and air movers thru out the condo. The technicians applied antimicrobial solution to avoid mold growth.

ServiceMaster by Wright’s construction department is currently working with the condo owner to rebuild the damaged areas. They will be replacing all the drywallbaseboards, painting, etc. to get the bathroom back to how it was before the leak happened.
