Thermal Imaging Technology
Moisture is one of the biggest threats to a building’s structural integrity. All too often, it’s not detected until it can be seen with the naked eye. By that time, extreme amounts of damage have probably been done. Twinspectors are proud to use thermal imaging technology in order to detect even the smallest amounts of moisture in a building. This state-of-the-art technology allows our technicians to see through walls in order to locate the signs of moisture before they cause serious problems.
Thermal or infrared technology is conducted through specialised cameras. These cameras are extremely expensive, which is one of the top reasons that many building inspection companies refuse to use them. At Twinspectors, we spare no expense in order to provide the most useful and thorough building inspections. We are happy to use thermal imaging technology as a regular part of our pre-sale, pre-purchase and annual building inspections. In turn, we are able to provide more effective services to our customers.
Moisture detection isn’t the only thing that thermal imaging technology brings to the table. It’s also an invaluable tool in the detection of termites. Termite sub-nests and damage can be detected by these extremely sensitive cameras. Of course, thermal imaging technology alone isn’t enough to perform an adequate building or pest inspection. When it’s used along with other top forms of technology, though, it can dramatically increase inspectors’ accuracy, making it easier for homeowners to follow up with the right repairs and eradication techniques. Having a complete understanding of where a building stands in terms of structural integrity and pest infestations is critical; thermal imaging technology is a priceless tool in producing thorough and meaningful reports.
Other advanced technology that we use is Termatrac T3i which has revolutionized the practice of professional termite detection by combining the three critical technologies required to competently and efficiently detect, locate and confirm the presence of termites. We are using Termatrac’s latest patented Termite Detection Radar, Advanced Remote Thermal Sensor with Laser Guide and if required, Advanced Moisture Sensor.
