How Do You Handle Water Damage from a Leaky Dishwasher?

Turn to SERVPRO to Inspect and Assess the Damage in Your New Providence Home

A leaky dishwater can turn your kitchen into a watery mess, and the damage can extend well beyond the visible water. Consider calling a professional company to inspect the damage, use the right tools and fix the problem.

o Thermal Imaging Cameras
o Moisture Meters
o Boroscopes and Inspection Cameras

How is moisture detected in building materials?

Thermal imaging cameras are used to identify the presence of water that may have leaked into flooring, drywall, etc. These cameras evaluate the extent of the moisture and show how far it has traveled. They may also indicate the presence of water that cannot be detected using other tools.

How is moisture in building materials measured?

Moisture meters provide reliable numbers for SERVPRO professionals to assess this kind of damage. These meters can also be calibrated to measure moisture penetration in a variety of different materials.

What about hidden moisture damage?

Inspection cameras and boroscopes can look behind cabinets, the dishwasher itself and other hard to inspect areas to detect the presence of moisture. They can also detect contamination, and they have the ability to record still images and take video.

Can contamination be detected and measured?

Yes, in most instances. SERVPRO professionals use luminometers to test surfaces and residual water for organic contamination. This allows them to determine if further action is necessary to eliminate this problem.

What if water damages extends beyond the kitchen into the carpets?

Moisture sensors are used to detect moisture in carpets and padding so that these items can be serviced as well.
