Infrared Moisture & Mold Detection

Infrared Moisture Detection

Non-invasive infrared (IR) scanning can be used to aid in the detection of:

  • Water and moisture intrusion

  • Plumbing and roof leaks

  • Missing insulation

  • Structural defects

  • Mold hidden behind walls

  • Heat loss

  • Electrical problems

Above is a photo of a condominium. The dark (cool) streak is water in the wall from a leaking washing machine on the third floor. Water was detected in the basement. The camera showed the source.

Moisture in building materials can destroy structural integrity and nurture mold. The first step in moisture problem remediation is to quickly and accurately locate and remove all sources of moisture. Infrared cameras instantly show you what's cool and what's warm. This can help find moisture. IR cameras can instantly find the ultimate source with little or no physical disassembly of the premises and minimal disturbance of inhabitants.

Infrared cameras are the inspection assets preferred by building experts for fast, reliable, accurate building diagnosis in the entire range of building problems, from post-catastrophe fire and flood investigations to chronic leaks and moisture problems.

All-Points Home Inspections LTD uses Infrared technology on commercial buildings and condominiums to "see" what the eye cannot.

The ability to detect and measure thermal energy emitted from an object is known as thermography. The tools of the trade are called infrared cameras, and they translate the invisible infrared spectrum into thermal images that we can see and track via thermography.

So what does all this mean? Well, an infrared picture is worth a thousand words.

Here is an infrared image of a failing commercial roof.

This image allowed the owner of the building to save thousands of dollars by only replacing the part of the roof that was failing.

Here is another Interior Roof survey:

Interior infrared survey conducted during daytime hours reveals central area saturated with moisture and in need of immediate repair.

Infrared cameras instantly capture and record high-resolution thermographic images.

Heat loss is in red.
