Moisture within a building can damage building components which can lead to rot and/or mold. Quick moisture detection is key to minimizing potential damage and repair costs.
Infrared Technology and Moisture Detection Infrared cameras are considered one of the most advanced and accurate tools known for determining and documenting moisture damage in buildings. Results are instant and the thermal images are easy to understand and can serve as irrefutable proof in lawsuits. Traditional moisture surveys are very time consuming, but with today’s cutting-edge infrared technology they can be completed in a fraction of the time.
Excessive moisture destroys structural integrity and can create expensive problems like mold and mildew which can cause serious health concerns. Often, these problems are not obvious until it’s too late. Fortunately, with aide of infrared technology, you can discover those hidden problems early, thus saving you money and increasing your building’s lifespan dramatically
Two big advantages of infrared thermography are that it’s non-destructive and unobtrusive. You don’t need people traipsing through your home tearing down sections of walls hunting for hidden damage. With infrared, large and inaccessible areas can be surveyed quickly and efficiently. Moisture problems in ceilings can be readily seen even when no stains are present.
What is the end product?
At Puget Sound Infrared, we exhaustively evaluate the moisture condition using infrared technology. We then create a detailed, high-quality and easy to understand report documenting any moisture findings, including both digital and thermographic images to aide with location. After performing a survey, our thermographers can often make an immediate assessment.
