Hidden Water Damage in Earlysville?

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

A person is using an infrared camera. We identify and restore water damage in Albemarle County.

I noticed that my water bill seemed higher than usual for my Earlysville home. I read on the Environmental Protection Agency’s website about determining if I had a hidden water leak. This is what the EPA website told me to do:

  • A good method to check for leaks is to examine your winter water use. It’s likely that a family of four has a serious leak problem if its winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons per month.
  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, you probably have a leak.

Sure enough, I had a water leak, but I couldn’t tell where it was. I called SERVPRO® of Charlottesville, and they sent out a team of technicians that used an infrared camera to locate the source of the hidden water damage inside my wall. They removed the drywall, repaired the leaking gasket, dried the area, replaced the drywall, and repainted. Now you would never know I had a hidden water leak in my home!
