Moisture Movement Is Hard To Detect

Moisture movement can complicate water removal from any property. Sophisticated removal procedures or minimally evasive demolition is required to reach hidden areas of water and moisture. Such steps lead to higher costs or lengthen restoration periods. There are four main methods of moisture movement;

  1. Liquid flow
  2. Capillary suction
  3. Air movement
  4. Vapor diffusion

Apart from liquid flow, which you can readily see, the other processes are hard to notice without the use of advanced techniques or tools. As the moisture moves, it transfers damage from the areas initially affected. It also causes further deterioration of materials and if left unchecked, the result could be secondary damage the can range from mold infestation to structural damage.
