If you’ve ever been the unfortunate victim of a water leak, you know the frustration that can be caused by trying to figure out the source of the leak. While you may see moisture seeping from your walls or ceilings, chances are good that the source of the leak is not directly behind the visible damage. The main reason for this is that water can travel a long way inside your walls or ceilings before it finds its way out.
Instead of ripping open your walls and ceilings to visibly trace the water back to its source, there’s a much more cost-effective and efficient solution – thermal imaging! Typically, the water traveling inside the recesses of your home is at a different temperature than the surrounding objects. This allows a professional using an infrared camera to view the path of the water without needing to physically remove the walls and ceilings that may be obstructing the view.
