Building & Pest Inspection with Thermal Camera
Thermal cameras are a powerful diagnostic tool that can provide a more complete picture of the building and any defects or damage. Recent improvements in camera technology have led to an increase in popularity in Thermography across many industries. Thermal cameras can be used to great effect during a building inspection.
A thermal cameras are used to scan the building envelope and can be useful in detecting issues such as; Active termites, structural damage, leaks or water penetration, damp issues, mould & mildew etc.
A Thermal Camera is not a ‘stand-alone’ inspection tool. It is used during a Building & Pest Inspection. This means that the inspector will do everything they normally do, such as tapping, knocking and moisture testing PLUS use the thermal camera to further investigate all areas.
It is important to understand that a thermal camera does not allow the inspectors to ‘see inside’ walls. Thermography is not required under the Australian Standard for building inspections.
However, a Thermal Camera will give the inspector a more ‘complete picture’ of the property and might just save you thousands of dollars in hidden costs.Book an inspection Buy a report now
Why you need a Thermal Camera Inspection?
Look for Active Termites
Termites are unique as they leave a 'heat signature' that can be detected with a thermal camera. They maintain their nest and galleries at a constant temperature of 26-35 degrees. This can be visible to a thermal camera.
Find structural damage or mudding
Wall framing is 'visible' in some circumstances. Allowing the detection of any structural damage.
Termite mudding can also be located inside walls using a thermal camera.
Locate leaking roofs
Leaking roofs can be very difficult to detect during a visual inspection. However an active leak can be obvious to a thermal camera.
Identify leaking showers
Leaking showers can be detected using a thermal camera. Dampness or water penetration is not always visible to the naked eye.
Further Investigate a known issue
Sometimes the inspector will have a 'suspicion' about a defect but is unable to provide tangible evidence. A thermal camera can provide the inspector with further detail, making defect diagnosis more certain.
Identify areas conducive to mould & mildew
A combination temperature and moisture is required to promote mould and mildew growth in our homes. A Thermal camera can be used to identify these areas.
