Thermal Imaging Cameras

Thermal Imaging Camera Thermal Imaging Camera

Thermal imaging cameras (also called infrared cameras) are utilized for inspecting and monitoring moisture in building materials. At the beginning of a water project, they provide a fast evaluation of the extent of moisture. They can show how water traveled throughout a structure, and many times they can indicate moisture that otherwise may have never been discovered. At the end of the project, they provide excellent documentation or proof that drying was successfully completed. Technically, thermal cameras do not display moisture images, but rather infrared images.

1. Thermography does not detect moisture. The infrared camera does not detect moisture, but does detect temperature differences on the surface of a material. The camera’s display shows all of the variations in temperatures across a surface as different colors in the display. In the situation where moisture in a material causes a temperature difference on the surface of the material, the infrared camera will display the wet surface areas in a distinct color from the dry surface areas.

2. Thermography does not see behind or inside materials. The infrared camera also does not display anything that is inside a wall, in the middle of a material, or beneath a surface. The camera shows infrared images, and infrared images are not X-ray images. The camera only shows what is happening with heat on a surface. Of course, what happens on a surface may suggest what is happening inside or underneath. Some of the temperature differences on the surface may possibly result from moisture behind, under, or inside a material.

If you have a water damage at your property, call SERVPRO of Pewaukee & Sussex at 262.696.6336.

Commercial Containment in Pewaukee, Wisconsin

Containment Containment

Building containments is a crucial part of our restoration, remediation, and abatements projects. We often create containments to create control.

  • Control over the drying time, especially in reducing it. 
  • Control over the air quality if mold or other pathogens are present.
  • Control demolition dust and particles and prevent their spread throughout the property.

They are constructed from poly-sheeting, professional tape, and zippers. All material is CDC approved and highly durable. 

Having containment present- if needed- is a critical step in drying your water damage or keeping you and the persons at the property safe!

If you have a water damage or suspect mold in your home, give SERVPRO of Pewaukee & Sussex a call today at 262.696.6336. 

Estimates are always free and we are always here to help!

Commercial Carpet Clean

Why should your business have its carpeting cleaned often and professionally? 

Carpeting and rugs are well known for hiding mold, dust, particle pollution and dirt. All of which can be terrible for your health! Cleaning the carpet will promote better indoor air quality, and will leave your carpeting or rugs clean and fresh. 

Having the carpets professionally cleaned will improve the overall aesthetic of the property and maintain its appearance. Having dirty and not well- maintained carpeting can really give off a bad vibe and make the overall look of the property seem dirty. You want your business to give the best impression possible. 

Regular cleaning of carpeting will also ensure that you are taking care of your initial investment. Proper care for carpeting will ensure that they stay fresh, clean and will look amazing throughout their lifetime. 

If your business or home needs a carpet clean, give SERVPRO of Pewaukee & Sussex a call today at 262.696.6336!
