How to contact us


We have added Thermal Scanning Camera Inspections to our Mold Inspection services. The tool is mainly used to locate and pinpoint sources of leaks and water intrusion in buildings eliminating the need for destructive source finding. The method is most efficient shortly after a leak occurred and less effective when no moisture remain in the building material. It can collect Color thermal images that can be e-mailed to client or used for documentation in reports. Go to the link above to find out more. Contact us for a demo.

There are many more instances when thermography can be utilized. Here are a few:

  • Benefits of Infrared Thermography
