Forensic Cause and Origin Investigations

Water damage tells a story. Materials react to moisture in predictable, known ways. When a specific material is exposed to moisture, it becomes damaged in the same way each time. If the person examining the water-damaged materials understands this process, useful information can be derived that would otherwise not be apparent. In many cases, the pattern of material deterioration provides a map showing where the source of the moisture is located, the nature of the moisture source, and the duration of the moisture exposure. Additionally, this information can be utilized to provide a more appropriate and effective remediation protocol. This information is widely available; however, the knowledge and expertise of your professional will determine whether your project benefits from it.
