Finding and drying commercial water damage
Many commercial buildings have steel skeletons instead of wooden studs. While mold on these studs isn’t a big problem, rust is. If they aren’t completely dried, they will rust and will be structurally compromised. Often the channels that hold the studs run the length of the building. These channels allow the water to travel to areas you would never expect, often far from the original loss. Using moisture meters to look for the water can be a challenge since the studs set off the conductivity meters we use just like wet materials. This may require the use of infrared cameras and other moisture detectors to determine what is wet.
