A lot of companies offer a basement flood prevention inspection, but what is a flood prevention inspection? What does it include? When it comes to protecting your home from basement flooding, a professional basement inspection is a crucial first step. For homeowners seeking reliable “basement flood protection,” understanding what to expect during this inspection, especially since it differs from company to company.

The Importance of a Thorough Basement Inspection

A comprehensive basement inspection is key to identifying potential risks and implementing effective flood protection strategies. It’s not just about spotting visible issues; it’s crucial to uncovering hidden problems that could lead to significant damage in the future. Stopping problems before they start saves you a ton of money. Call Draincom at 905-238-6800 or fill out this form to schedule your free basement flood protection inspection.

Advanced Technology in a Basement Flood Protection Inspection

Identifying some basement leakage or other problems is pretty straightforward. You can spot them yourself and any professional company can spot these obvious issues. However, you need a company that can perform a basement flood protection inspection that includes identifying potential problems and one that can help you with basement flood “prevention”.

Draincom elevates the standard of basement inspections by employing a FLIR i7 infrared camera. This sophisticated tool plays a vital role in detecting leaks and moisture issues that are not immediately apparent to the naked eye.

How the FLIR i7 Infrared Camera Enhances Inspections: The FLIR i7 infrared camera is a game-changer in basement inspections for flood protection. Here’s why:

  • Sensitive Detection: It picks up the slightest differences in surface temperature, which can indicate moisture presence.
  • Visualizing Hidden Issues: The camera reveals colder, potentially damp areas, even if there are no visible signs, like on drywall.
  • Comprehensive Analysis: After identifying areas with temperature abnormalities, these spots are further inspected with moisture detectors to confirm the issue, be it a leak or poor insulation.

What Homeowners Should Expect During a Basement Flood Protection Inspection

  • Initial Walkthrough: The inspector will do a thorough walkthrough of your basement, looking for any visible signs of damage or potential risk areas.
  • Using the FLIR i7 Camera: The inspector will use the infrared camera to scan the basement, focusing on walls, floors, and other critical areas. This step is crucial for identifying hidden moisture or insulation issues.
  • Moisture Detection: Areas flagged by the infrared camera will be further examined with moisture detectors to confirm the presence and extent of any wetness or leaks.
  • Detailed Explanation: Throughout the process, the inspector will explain their findings, helping you understand any potential issues and the necessary steps to mitigate them.
  • Recommendations and Report: After the inspection, you’ll receive a comprehensive report with recommendations for protecting your basement against flooding.
