How does Thermal Imaging work?
The Thermal Imaging camera uses infrared technology to measure heat (or thermal energy) that cannot be seen with the naked eye and hence it can expose concealed water leaks. This leak detection technology provides a fast and reliable avenue to survey large areas including gyprock ceilings, shower recesses, concrete slabs or interior walls.
At Find Leak Detection we use Thermal Imaging or Infrared inspections to detect not only the origin of a hidden water leak but equally important to track the moisture path left behind as this is highly likely to cause water damage to the property. Water damage is often visible in mouldy or stained ceilings, carpet and floorings, walls may show blistering or paint peeling off.
How is Thermal Imaging used in Leak Detection?
Thermal imaging detection is vital in maintaining the integrity of your building, may it be residential, commercial, or industrial. Thermal cameras allow you to see through walls, floors, even equipment and machines and accurately pin-point water-leaks and other problem areas before they get worse.
Most insurance companies require thermal imaging for most businesses. And rightly so. There are a number of advantages with Thermal Imaging.
