Thermal Imaging – Seeing The Invisible Water Damage

Thermal Imaging –

Have you ever encountered a situation where you suspect there is something weird going on inside your wall or ceiling? Perhaps a leak within the structure or you suspect there is a cold draft coming in from somewhere but you just can’t seem to pinpoint it?

Well with the use of the latest technology, we are now able to identify these problem areas and start seeing the invisible. Water damage Northshore and water damage Providence, RI can be found easier and efficiently using this new method.

This is done through the use of thermal imaging, at one point this technology was very expensive and reserved only for military and government applications. However as this technology progresses it becomes more affordable to apply it to other new industries, in this case, the property restoration industry.

The company we have to thank for this is FLIR. They produce a camera that is a pioneer in the thermal imagining sector and produces the best equipment available today.

For property restoration, some of the best uses of thermal imaging technology include:

  • Pin-point moisture intrusion such as leaks within walls and ceilings, avoiding the need to cut costly inspection holes.
  • Identify cold and hot spots, finding areas of missing insulation which could lead to drafts and energy loss.
  • Identify maintenance issues or potential dangers such as electrical overheating of components.
  • Assess the efficiency of HVAC systems, finding any areas of air leaks.
  • Identify structural defects
  • Identify clogs in piping

Note: thermal imagining readings can be attained without damaging the property, no pins or probes are required therefore there will be no sign of damage to your property.

Also, thermal imaging will also work in areas of total darkness as it is operating on heat differentials it does not need any visible light to operate. This is especially handy when inspecting areas such as attics, crawlspaces, or there are simply no power/lighting available in the property.
