Thermal Imaging Services

 


 

 

 

If you are experiencing water problems in your home or building, the main concern is to find out where it's coming from, and stop it.

We understand this, and we have the tool to help. Thermal Imaging. There is nothing like thermal imaging to find the cause of your problem. This amazing tool can detect changes in temperature by less than .05 of a degree. We can see why a certain wall may be a little bit colder than the one next to it. We can help find your water problem and normally, without any damage to the drywall or structure.

Also, you're most likely going to need some water damage restoration or mold remedition services, look here for more information;

What is Thermography?

Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. The higher the object's temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or "heat" radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications. And as industry strives to improve manufacturing efficiencies, manage energy, improve product quality, and enhance worker safety, new applications for infrared cameras continually emerge.

 

What we do with our Thermal Imaging Services

  • Through visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the building
  • Start scanning the problem areas trying to see the possible entry or "issue" point
  • Start a plan to solve your problem and set up a through list of things to be done and a written estimate for all work

What other uses does Thermal Imaging have?

  • Finding Electrical Problems
  • Missing Insulation in Walls
  • Roof Leaks, Water and Air
  • Automobile Leaks
  • Energy Efficiency

 

If we were inside this basement and the floor was covered with carpet, we could most likely isolate the point of entry and figure out what problem is causing the water to enter the home. Then we can set a course of action to stop it.

 

    The first thermal image is from a water damage job we did in Potomac MD in 2008. The dehumidifiers and fans had been running for over 4 days and all of the meters were reading dry. Once we did the thermal scan, it revealed the top of the wall in the basement bedroom was still wet. Without thermal imaging, this would not have been found and the chance of mold growth would be high.

    No water damage job is complete without a thermal imaging scan.

    The tenant in the 2nd floor apartment complained about a wet, musty odor in their storage area. The problem was a leaky washing machine line in the 3rd floor unit. Thermal imaging saved thousands of dollars of wasted demolition work by finding the problem quickly and easily.
