Thermal Imaging Technology
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.
