Leak Detection Specialists
What can cause a roof leak:

- Age of roof
- Broken shingles
- Loosened nails
- Poor workmanship
- Improperly laid roofing
- Clogged gutters
The most common cause of mold growth are leaks. There are many obvious places in your home where leaks can occur; i.e., within the roof, water heater, toilet, washer, faucets, and pipes. What happens is, a small leak develops and water trickles slowly into your home’s wall cavities causing stains to appear in your ceiling and inner walls. This is a very common sign of mold growth. This can affect your health and should be addressed as promptly as possible.
At Air Quality Assessors, our leak detection services consist of noninvasive ways to look for moisture in buildings including:
Infra-Red Camera Evaluation: Our equipment detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image on a video monitor and perform temperature calculations. Heat sensed by an infrared camera can be very precisely found and measured, allowing you to not only monitor thermal performance, but also identify and evaluate the relative severity of heat-related problems.
Moisture Mapping: The process after our leak detection service is moisture mapping. Moisture mapping is Identifying which building materials are wet after a water damage incident. Finding every square inch of moisture is imperative to ensure future problems will not occur is our goal.
There are many signs that anyone can look for when assessing whether or not you have a leak or moisture issue. A high water bill can be a significant sign of a water leaks somewhere in your home. Leaks can become a high cost for homeowners especially if the leaks aren’t found, and the issue isn’t resolved. One reason homeowners don’t always find out they have a leak, is because sometimes, leaks are hidden.
Leaks can hide in many different ways. They can hide in the form of cracks, bubbles, and discoloration of building materials. Cracks in window panes, paint and walls, including outdoor walls are all signs of a leak or excess moisture. Our noninvasive testing services enable us to solve your problems by finding leaks and excess moisture without damaging any building materials.
Areas in homes and buildings with unexplained moisture are also signs there is a hidden leak present. Rooms with hardwood or laminate floors where bubbling and discoloration appear out of nowhere, are typically in need of infrared leak detection services. Bedrooms with bubbling paint in the middle of the wall is a sure sign you may have a roof leak. Sometimes when leaks enter into buildings from the roof and intrude into the wall cavity, bubbling paint can be an affect and the first sign of excess moisture.
If you are concerned about moisture issues and leaks, check for signs in your roof, in and around cabinets, carpet, and walls. It is best to act at the first sign of moisture. Call a local leak detection professional that offers noninvasive testing services, such as Air Quality Assessors, and you will find you leak and excess moisture issues are resolves quickly and efficiently.
