What For

Moisture inspections, also known as moisture intrusion investigations, are an essential part of keeping Florida homes free of water damage and mold. They also help detect other problems that could potentially damage your home and your health. Moisture inspections or intrusion investigations are exactly what they sound like. They’re performed to identify water intrusions from unidentified sources. And detecting them ahead of time can prevent serious structural damage to a building. Moisture inspections also help identify problems that could lead to mold growth and even pest infestations.


Florida Knows

Moisture intrusion can also become a serious electrical hazard. And dealing with a moisture intrusion problem could seriously disrupt your life, especially here in Florida. The Sunshine State is a place of year-round high humidity. And Florida is no stranger to rainfall, which means homeowners are very likely to experience moisture intrusion problems. Whether it’s due to poor construction; damaged windows or roofs; improperly installed HVAC systems; or other building infrastructure problems, water entering a building can become a nightmare for any homeowner. And defective insulation and drywall can also lead to moisture intrusion.

It can damage roofs, walls and floors, and can seriously compromise your indoor air quality. This is why moisture testing is so important, especially after something like Hurricane Irma. After the Category 5 hurricane made landfall in Florida and destroyed the state, many Florida homes experienced flooding, rain and wind damage that led to moisture problems. Any gaps or cracks to a building’s roof, windows or walls on the exterior of a building could allow water to penetrate its interior. So it’s an important and necessary step toward not only detecting existing water intrusion problems, but also preventing them.
