Where’s the leak?
A leak might seem like a harmless issue and a cake walk to solve and fix, but the truth of the matter is that it gets really hard to detect the leak in the first place, let alone fixing it. Admittedly there are the standard heuristics which home owners follow such as an unexpected surge in water bills, an inexplicable sound of dripping in the house or even damp patches on the walls. However it is best to leave the detection and rectifications to experts like West Palm Beach Emergency Restoration, who will bring in the professional finesse which the task requires.
How our thermal imaging process works?
Water leaks have been known to be sneaky in terms of the locations where they tend to develop. We therefore rely on simply the most advanced thermal imaging cameras to detect the location. The beauty of such a gadget is that it instantaneously generates a heat map of wherever it is focused. The damp spots on the wall caused by the leaks would have a slightly lower temperature than the remainder of the wall, which is what these thermal imaging cameras are designed to read.
Thermal imaging: Why it’s the best?
- It can point out damp patches and corners caused by moisture retention in the walls owing to plumbing leaks. Such leaks if undetected can promote rotting and mold growth.
- Its beauty lies in the non-invasive approach to leak detection, which it follows. So you no longer need to harm your walls in any way in order to get to the breach.
- The speed of operation and the accuracy saves a great deal of time for technicians working on leak detection.

The layman's approach to leak detection, this method harnesses the inherent property of water to flow in its path and assess where it leaks. It might be a complimenting tool, but isn’t such a good standalone leak detection method.

The sound test involves employing acoustic equipment, which amplifies the sound of the water runs, enabling in ascertaining the exact position of the leak.
