IR Cameras: Inspecting for Moisture Intrusion(IR) Infrared Cameras – Home Inspection Sarasota FL | Direct Inspections

An infrared imaging device detects variations in the temperature of subjects captured in its viewfinder. The deviations in temperature are represented visually as differences in color – hence the name, “thermal imaging.” IR imaging reveals latent moisture in a structure by displaying it in contrast with the building materials. The intrusion of water within walls, floors, ceilings and support structures from mechanical and plumbing leaks, as well as the buildup of ambient moisture can be detected this way. In real estate inspection terms, this tool is invaluable because it allows moisture intrusion to not only be located, but also detected when it is just in its early stages.
