Thermal Pest Inspection Report
EBC inspectors are equipped with the latest technology to help detect termites and building defects, giving you a comprehensive thermal pest inspection.
What does a Thermal Imaging Camera do?
With the use of modern Thermal Imaging Cameras we are now able to detect areas of moisture or thermal inconsistencies and make a diagnosis. Infrared technology is used to detect heat in small spaces and is perfect for use in termite inspections as it can detect colonies that are massed together and make it easier for the inspector to pinpoint the location of the infestation.
Moisture is the leading causes of problems in buildings; it is also the most common finding for building and pest inspectors. From leaking shower recesses to rising or penetrating damp to roof leaks to issues of condensation with potential mould growth and termite damage, water is almost always the source of major issues needing attention.
Having the ability to diagnose and identify moisture issues within a building allows the prospective purchaser to be better informed prior to the purchase of the property, reducing the risks associated with moisture significantly.
Adopting the Latest Thermal Technology
EBC have adopted thermal imaging to enhance our inspections by using the latest Bullard T3 Max Thermal Imaging Camera which is a new, high technological detection system that is quick, effective and does not require any damage to houses.
What is a Thermal Imaging Camera?
A thermal imaging camera is an inspection tool used and like all tools there are limitations and advantages. A thermal camera will not expose all defects and/or termite workings, however it provides enormous advantages and when combined with other inspections, it will provide a broader, more comprehensive evaluation on the condition of the inspected building.
Infrared cameras can see more than the naked eye and more than our moisture meters. They can be used in the right conditions to detect and pinpoint locations of a variety of major concerns ranging from termites, termite damage, window leakage, missing thermal insulation, energy effectiveness of the building envelope, to overheating electrical equipment. EBC highly recommend a thermal pest inspection with your building and pest inspection as it assists in detecting many items that may be of concern, which are concealed by wall linings. These include termite damage or termite sub-nests, moisture damage and many other building issues.
We wish to emphasis the fact that thermal imaging is not a standalone tool used for the detection of termites as has been the conception provided to the general public by some other companies – thermal imaging when used with the expertise gained from years of termite, inspection and building experience by the operator, together with other advance technology tools, will provide valuable information that cannot be gained in any other manner. Therefore it is prudent to have a property scanned with a thermal imaging camera.
At Effective Building & Consultancy we Endeavour to provide all of our clients with the most advanced technology available while maintaining a competitive price.
What are Moisture Meters?
Our inspectors also use moisture metres during our inspections to measure the percentage of water in a given substance hence helping detect high moisture levels behind timber walls and plaster sheeting, indicating the presence of conditions that attract termites even when there are no outward signs of damage. A moisture meter will also detect fungal decay due to leaking pipes or rising dampness. All high moisture readings should be investigated to determine the cause.
