Thermal Imaging Targets Moisture
An infra-red mold inspection allows for a non intrusive thermal assessment for the purpose of determining potential hidden moisture / water problems.
Thermal imaging is used within the building industry to find problems with building materials, such as: hidden water leaks, leaks within the HVAC system, general plumbing leaks and faulty electrical and mechanical systems. Thermal imaging cameras are useful for energy loss audits because you can see exactly where cold air is entering the home or heat is being lost, along with energy dollars. Thermal imaging has also been used successfully to help locate loose electrical connections or overheated breaker boxes by identifying “hot spots”.
The Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) industry uses this technology as a way to provide accurate and reliable results during investigations to increase accuracy and significantly cut investigation time.
Thanks to thermal imaging, CMA Inspectors have the ability to examine roofs, floors and walls for moisture intrusions, energy loss and electrical problems faster and more thoroughly than the competition.
While infrared does not specifically detect mold, it does provide Inspectors with the distinct advantage of quickly and accurately identifying conditions where mold typically grows.
