Is your Home Water Tightened? No? Then your house is prone to wall dampness

Water can do a great harm to your home, sometimes a steady trickle of rain may be a cause to make your wall wet and invites seepage issues, In order to keep your home dry whole year round, you should definitely think about Water tightening of your home.

Wall Leakage may be due to different causes like it may be due to stagnant water on your terrace, water leakage on your kitchen, Leakage from your bathroom, Internal pipe leakage etc. People do not have much knowledge of how to tackle such issues effectively, neither do the plumbers or the painters. The most common method followed by all these plumber / painters  fix the areas displaying wall dampness / leakage/ wall paint peel off as they apply waterproofing chemicals on those areas and repaint the affected areas. THIS IS  A COMMON MISTAKE!.

Applying waterproofing chemicals on the affected areas will only solve the issue temporarily &  will pop up after some days or weeks. The actual leak will be detected where the path ends. This is why most of the leaks persist even after fixing as the root cause is not fixed. So finding the Root cause of the leakages and fixing is the method what we follow & provide is  WATER TIGHTENING.

 Water Tightening?

Lets simply explain with the help of a water bottle, if you have not tightened the cap properly, naturally, the opening of the bottle will leak, so what can we do? You will apply a little more strength to close the cap firmly; so that the leakage stops. Water tightening is the same process what we implement, with the help of a Thermographic Camera, we can find out the source of water leakage in your home and fixing the leakage source is called Water Tightening so that you will NEVER face the leakage problem again.
So now you can identify the difference between Water Proofing and Water Tightening? Yes, both are different techniques for fixing the leakage problem with waterproofing chemicals, whereas Water Tightening fixes the root cause. Simple waterproofing is not enough to prevent such wall leakages, the most effective way to prevent this is Water Tightening.

Thermographic Survey Before Buying a home -

Thermographic survey is the latest technology helping in Home Inspection. Infrared Thermography allows our inspectors to spot many hidden defects in a house or building without having to disassemble or break walls and without interfering with any part of the existing structure. This approach helps to get more insights and more reliable information about a home or building. 

Thermographic Survey can demonstrate how difference in temperature can encourage wall dampness in your house, Cold walls are often damp, and conduct heat much more readily than dry walls. Imaging can show how badly installed insulation causes cold spots, which encourage mould and mildew; Similar is the case in finding pipe leakage, finding hot spot for electrical leakage, defective transformers and loose electrical connections, air leakage and insulation defects etc.

This approach is very useful to prevent Wall Dampness, Wall Leakage, Wall paint peel off etc. It helps professionals in restoration process by tracking down the source of water. Infrared cameras are a powerful tool that spots hidden water damage before extensive damage occurs.

Infrared cameras show temperature differentials and thermal patterns. The rainbow colored images can help identify cold spots due to drafts or uneven insulation, but can also help to spot moisture as well.

With the help of Thermographic images we can find out the source area, Thermal imaging cameras identify very small differences in temperature on the surface of different materials, walls, on concretes, roofs etc highlighting the warmer and the colder surface areas providing evidence of where the leak is originating. So now you know that with this Inspection you can find out whether your home is prone to Wall Leakage or Dampness.
