(PRWEB) June 23, 2015 -- Duckstein Restoration, a restoration company in Pittsburgh, PA, has just added high-powered, industry-leading thermal water detection cameras to its wide range of service capabilities. The new cameras, developed by FLIR Systems, Inc., allow Duckstein Restoration’s first responders to capture the entire scope of water damage and identify all entry points that cause problems in a home disaster. Quickly addressing this damage means possibly saving more of a homeowner’s house and valuable personal property, and the new cameras allow Duckstein Restoration to undergo the water extraction and drying process in much less time than is possible with traditional industry methods.
In water restoration, completely drying and remediating an area damaged by water can be complicated. Water seeps and leaches into the smallest of cracks and holes, is absorbed by building materials (such as drywall), and can cross entire floors without the carpet showing any signs of water moving underneath. Since wet building materials and personal property can start to grow dangerous amounts of mold within 24-48 hours, missing any of this water can escalate into greater problems in just a few days.
Now with advanced thermal technology, Duckstein Restoration’s emergency responders can virtually peer into walls and flooring, immediately detect water damage problems, hotspots in the home, structural defects, plumbing clogs, HVAC interferences, and other issues. Virtually no water or moisture can go undetected with these cameras, assuring homeowners that the job is successfully and totally finished.
“We’ve always taken great pride in our ability to completely remove water damage from homes and restore those homes to better-than-before conditions, but this technology allows us to do so faster and more efficiently,” says Henry Duckstein of Duckstein Restoration. “We want our customers to know how important it is to quickly and completely identify the scope of water damage in a home so that we can start the remediation process right away. Doing so only helps to save more of your property from mold growth and irreversible structural damage.”
The new cameras also serve other helpful uses throughout different restoration processes. Duckstein Restoration can use them to assist in performing a full energy audit, discover air leaks and moisture intrusions, locate missing or damaged insulation, identify structural damage within a building’s foundation, and much more. By providing this technology to every emergency responder at the company, Duckstein Restoration continues to work at the forefront of technology in restoration services in the Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and Northern West Virginia areas.
