Check your home for moisture to prevent damage

Floods usually get all attention when they come to the thought of damage done to go home from water. But the damage from small leaks itself can be very large if not captured and corrected. This information can save thousands of dollars. We suggest that homeowners examine their own home every year and have their home checked by a home inspection company every 3 years looking for moisture problems.

Each house has a water heater of several types. It is estimated that 5 to 7 million failed water heaters of the year, and all failures have the possibility of causing water damage. The average cost for repairs after a failed water heater can exceed $ 20,000 in accordance with the Insurance Information Institute. Homeowners can see early signs of water heater failure quickly and easily. With great potential this damage must be often examined by homeowners.

Another area of ​​moisture problems is more difficult to see and homeowners are recommended to have a home inspection company conducting moisture inspection at home. It’s a little different from all home inspections that are often done when buying a house. Inspection of moisture only focuses on the fields related to moisture. Moisture is the material needed for mold problems. Often moisture inspections are carried out together with mold testing if suspicious growth is found during moisture inspection. If suspicious growth is observed, homeowners can decide to ask inspection companies to take swab samples and air samples for mold analysis by the lab.

Inspection of moisture is more than just looking for leaky pipes and waterways. The exterior situation that can cause sought-effective moisture intrusion and the right ventilation for attic, attic space, crawling space and roof are also visible. The problem of moisture in many spaces can be invisible for years. This delay is identification of increasing difficulties and costs in fixing this problem.

Moisture meters and moisture levels in homes can be measured and utilized also to help determine potential problems and causes. If the condition and situation presents themselves the thermal imaging camera can also be used also to help determine moisture problems.

Prints are present at each house and in fresh exterior air. If the mold spores are present on food sources such as drywall, trim wood, wood or even in dust it doesn’t have to grow to the level of problem. If the same spores and locations have added moisture, now you have a condition where the mold can grow and become a problem.

To prevent water damage and problems related to moisture such as fungal growth, it is recommended that all homes often check water leaks. Homeowners must often monitor their homes and hire home inspection companies to carry out more comprehensive moisture inspections every few years to help protect homes and family health.Read More
