Water Damage - Michigan Water Damage Restoration Service Company


Thermal Imaging is used in - Water Damage Restoration - Surveying
Thermal imaging infrared cameras have many uses across a wide spectrum of industries.
Select Restoration Uses infrared thermograph to address, assess and remediate water damage claims.
One of the most effective ways to minimize claims and maximize the dry-down
effectiveness is to provide our clients with a thorough documentation of the damage
caused by a water loss. Infrared thermograph can help us address water damage claims
effectively and efficiently when coupled with the accurate use of moisture meters, digital photographs,
 diagramming and thorough note taking. A trained thermograph using infrared thermograph
 to assist in documenting and assessing large water loss claims can be one of the most effective
 and efficient ways to mitigate water damage of commercial/residential buildings.
 The use of thermal imaging devices can save many hours of labor and help to allocate
drying equipment more effectively, resulting in cost savings to our clients.
Thermal imaging is also a very effective tool to diagram the dry down process or map the affected areas.
When Water damage strikes make sure the company you choose, uses a
thermal imaging camera to properly find and document the water damage to
effectively present  your water damage claim to the insurance company.

Thermal Imaging Infrared Cameras at Work Here in Michigan

Thermal imaging is a non-destructive, cost-effective method for detecting water infiltration.
Using an thermal imaging infrared camera, we can determine water penetration
source and the condition of building materials, whether dry or damp.
The ability to visually detect the damage from water infiltration is one of the most
effective tools developed in many years to aid in the quick restoration and
remedial measures of water damage. As an emergency company, when we arrive
on a job, the experts at the insurance companies rely on what we can 'show' them.
Thermal imaging is a 'state-of-the-art' solution. Insurance companies are
now able to see what we see -- before and after images of the damaged area
and the drying process. As an expert in the field of restorative drying since the early 90's,
Select Restoration has seen the industry change in many ways,
but thermal imaging is by far the most impressive evolution we are seeing
in the Restoration field. Some historical data makes clear how important
it is to identify water damage. In 2002, water damage claims accounted
for 28% of all claims paid. In 2006 the percentage increased to 45%

Thermal Imaging Cameras Find Moisture!

Infrared inspection cameras provided by Select Restoration are powerful tools for

quickly finding moisture in Residential as well as commercial buildings,

or for making sure all moisture has been removed after drying operations.

Excess moisture creates small temperature differences in the wet material

and displays the cooling effect of evaporating moisture, and thermal capacitance

 (the ability of a material and substance to retain and transfer thermal energy).

Infrared detection is an excellent way to locate suspicious areas,

which can then be checked with a moisture meter.

These images show a few of the ways that thermal infrared cameras are

being used during moisture mapping surveys. After drying is complete,

comparing infrared images from before and after allows the client to assess

 the drying progress. Drying the structure properly will

reduce the potential for costly mold remediation claims.
