Thermal imaging detects heat patterns or temperature changes, and is the most up to date technology in the mold assessor's tool kit. The human eye cannot see through walls, but thermal imaging cameras can.
Thermal imaging enables PrimeAire Mold inspector’s immediate non-invasive high-resolution evidence of potential moisture and heat conditions. The precise temperature measurement capabilities of thermal imaging are most effective for finding mold situations shortly after a leak occurred, which is the optimum time to locate and pinpoint sources of water intrusion.
Because water has it's own thermal capacitance, water leaks and moisture intrusion project a uniquely identifiable range. This is good news for the home owner, because it makes it possible for assessors to detect problem areas.
If your mold inspection is not conducted with infrared thermal imaging, your mold inspection may be inconclusive.
