Why Thermal Imaging Is Important In Building Inspections

Thermal Imaging Cameras

Termites, when in their nests, leads and workings, often create a hotter climate than the surroundings. With infrared thermal imaging, it’s easy to assess the temperature differential on the surface. Therefore, it’s effortless to detect any termite infestation without damaging the walls and early enough before the termites create some significant damage in the area. If the tools are used by the best inspectors, it’s easy to scan large areas fast enough to determine the termite infestation. The technology also comes in handy when identifying moisture ingress, dampness and ventilation issues around the house.

Debunking Thermal Imaging Myths

Over the time we have been in business, we have conducted lots of inspections and researched on various technologies that improve our reports. We adopted thermal imaging to boost our success in identifying termite infestations during our inspections. Of course, just as with any other new innovation, there have been a few cons who have created popular misconceptions about thermal imaging.

Keep in mind that this technology isn’t magical in any way and doesn’t provide a guarantee for finding termite infestations or any hidden defects in your home. However, there are many unscrupulous inspectors who mislead their clients that thermal imaging cameras can actually see through the walls. You should know that the technology is the best addition to any inspection but doesn’t work as a substitute for the experience, skills and knowledge possessed by a timber pest inspector.

Moisture Meters

A moisture meter is usually applied to the surface to detect excess moisture present in the plaster sheeting, timber walls or masonry. They are used to identify the conditions that are most likely to attract termites as well as causing fungal decay, especially if there are no exterior signs. It’s also useful when detecting moisture leakage from rising damp or pipes. Any high moisture readings should be investigated thoroughly to determine the exact cause of the problem.
