If your home has a damp problem that you can’t seem to get rid of, a damp inspection using thermal imaging may be able to pinpoint the exact areas of your home that are at the source of the problem.
What is thermal imaging?
Thermal imaging cameras are thermographic cameras that visualise the infrared radiation that a material or object emits. Damp affected areas emit different radiation than dry areas, which allows the thermal imaging camera to show potential damp problem areas around your home.
Why use thermal imaging for diagnosing damp?
Thermal imaging is a very useful technique for diagnosing damp, allowing damp specialists to provide the very best, tailored treatments. Rooms can be analysed to find areas with excess moisture or damp that are very difficult or impossible to detect with the naked eye.
A thermal imaging camera can help to detect:
- Moisture in walls
- Rising damp
- Lateral damp
- Mould in unreachable spaces
- Badly installed or lacking insulation
- Sealing issues
One of the benefits of thermal imaging for diagnosing damp problems is that it is completely non-invasive and very accurate when used by a trained thermographer. Interpreting readings from a thermal imaging camera is not easy. This is why it is crucial that the device is used by a trained professional.
