Water Damage Water damage to your home or property is a serious problem primarily because water pockets and water damage can be hidden and therefore missed by visual inspection. In order to detect moisture in areas that are difficult to inspect, we use thermal imaging technology for fast and accurate assessments of the damage. Infrared energy is heat, and sensors are able to create heat (thermal) images of areas around your home based on these differences in temperature. The thermal imaging sensors can detect moisture without the necessity of tearing out walls, wallboard or plaster to inspect for problems. The technology is noninvasive and non-contact.
