Bathroom Flood in Oceanway Leaves Buckling Floors

A malfunctioning toilet flapper results in flooding that seeped from the bathroom into the bedroom of this Oceanway home. Water damage caused the flooring to buckle but SERVPRO of Fernandina Beach/Yulee was able to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Source of Water Damage

Faulty plumbing supply lines can lead to an abundance of water damages.  Water damage from a sink averaged more than $7,000 per incident. Of these incidents, 44% were attributed to faulty plumbing supply lines.  Be sure to periodically check for water dripping off the lines under sinks or behind toilets to prevent large water losses.

Finding 'Hidden' Water

Infrared cameras may be used to find “hidden” water behind walls and ceilings.

Is That Wall Really Dry?

After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage.

Moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation

Water Damage Infared/Thermal Imaging

At SERVPRO we use infrared cameras to locate areas that otherwise could appear dry. These cameras allow us to "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the eye; it's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared.

This image is a great example of how our infrared cameras work. As you can see on the left, everything looks normal. However when looking through an infrared camera you can visibly see that water has absorbed into the drywall. Since water is cooler than the surrounding drywall and emits less infrared energy we can see how far the water damage has absorbed into the material, giving us the ability to dry all of the affected areas; not just what appears wet.

Water Damaged Particle Board

You can see in the top two images that there is a wet "water-line" on this particle board toe kick. Once this material experiences a water damage it is generally beyond repair or restoration. The third image on the bottom shows why. After this material gets wet it quickly begins to deteriorate and may even begin falling apart as pictured.
