Thermal imaging cameras can be used to identify problems such as water intrusion, poor ventilation, leaky pipes and cracks in the foundation without damaging the structure of your home. Sounds pretty "space age", doesn't it? And yes, it is the same type of camera that the military uses in heat-seeking missiles! So you're probably wondering what this all has to do with the mold problem in your home.
Well, here's how it works: thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material in your home has a unique thermal signature. When the material is compromised by moisture that thermal signature changes. The thermal imaging camera helps you see what the naked eye alone can not - areas that might have suspected problems.
Keep in mind that the thermal imaging camera ( bustmold.com/infrared-camera-inspections-process) is not a moisture meter. It won't gauge the amount of moisture - it will only warn you of areas that need further investigation. And it does not give you some kind of super X-ray vision - it simply identifies thermal differences. It really is excellent, however, in helping to identify issues in walls, floors, and ceilings, where mold growth is likely to occur.
Remember, where there is water intrusion there is the potential for mold to occur. That's why this particular piece of equipment is so useful. Find the moisture problem and you will find the material in your home that needs to be assessed for mold.
