Quinn INSPECTIONS uses state of the art technology in its mold detection business. Thermal Image Camera is only used upon request for Home Inspections, for additional fee. The technology is included in our Mold Testing, if needed.
Moisture in building materials can destroy the structural integrity of your home. Because moisture can nurture mold, it is important to quickly and accurately locate and remove all sources. However, moisture is not always visible to the human eye. D. Quinn Construction, Inc., uses FLIR infrared cameras to instantly identify wet spots. Infrared cameras can instantly find the moisture source with little or no physical dis-assembly of the premises and minimal disturbance of inhabitants.
About Infrared Thermography
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to “see” and “measure” thermal energy emitted from an object., according to FLIR Thermal Imaging. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Unlike visible light, in the infrared world, everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat. Even very cold objects, like ice cubes, emit infrared. The higher the object’s temperature, the greater the IR radiation emitted. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot
Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation and provide precise non-contact photos and measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras extremely cost-effective, valuable diagnostic tools in many diverse applications. And as industry strives to improve manufacturing efficiencies, manage energy, improve product quality, and enhance worker safety, new applications for infrared cameras continually emerge.
