How to Find Excess Moisture Around the Home, and the Immediate Effects Moisture Has On Your Health

Moisture and leak detection in your home – Don’t let the early signs slide, otherwise your home equity can vanish real quick through ‘unforeseen’ structural problems behind your walls. Just like humans can get cancer, so can your home and it’s normally undetected moisture that’s the problem!

Moisture in your home can be good, and it can be bad. When you do achieve the correct balance you need within the home, your health and the health of your building is ensured. But when you have too much moisture, your building can fail in many ways that can not only damage the structure, but affect you and your family’s health and well-being. Are you or your child possibly sleeping next to a damp wall that could be full of mold spores? Are you breathing them in?

When moisture is at a balanced level in our home, we are not even aware of it, and certainly can’t ‘see’ that the level is correct. But when the moisture balance gets out of whack, it always marks its territory in not so obvious places… and we don’t usually see these places until it’s all to late: rotting wood, wet walls, rusting metal, moldy surfaces, condensation on windows, peeling paint etc. Depending on your sensitivities, you may experience dryness in your nose and respiratory system when moisture is insufficient, or experience allergic reactions.

One of the many things you will learn about your home from our moisture detection service is that it’s not always natural causes that contribute to filling your walls and ceiling with moisture. The majority of the time, the moisture leak issue in your home can be traced back to the mistakes that builders, plumbers, contractors, building materials, manufacturers and designers make when your building envelope is pieced together right from the very beginning. Did you know in NZ there’s been cases of new homes being built, and suffering from moisture ingress and leaks from day 1?

Do not risk buying a home in NZ before getting a thermal imaging scan… the numbers are stacked against you. Here’s another BIG benefit of using our service in the process of buying a home… this idea is very logical, but most home buyers haven’t even thought of it… details here.
