The infrared thermal imaging scanning that we use at Spectrum Cleaning and Restoration has a large variety of purposes, and of course the most obvious one, since we are water remediation specialists is to find leaks. However, believe it or not, thermal imaging can be used for so much more! As restoration specialists we are also using this handy tool for detecting faulty areas within your home that have nothing to do with leaks and water damage.
The data from a thermal imaging inspection can detect many other issues, such as:
- Areas of the home where insulation is defective. When this happens, you lose a lot of energy from your home. Faulty insulation allows too much of the sun’s heat to penetrate your home through the attic. Your air conditioning then struggles to keep up with that heat, since the insulation is not stopping cold air from simply leaking out through the attic. The result is much higher energy bills.
- Any areas of cool air loss, with the most common culprits being windows, doors, attics, and basements.
So, as you can see, through detecting changes in heat, through walls and flooring and ceilings, thermal imaging can find both cooler areas, where there may be leaks, and warmer areas, such as where the sun may be heating up your home too much, or even if any of your electrical wiring is too hot. Once these faults are found, then Spectrum Cleaning and Restoration can provide restoration services, alongside your plumber, AC technician, electrician or other contractors to bring your home back to being like new.
