We conduct an average of 20-40 house inspections per week in Melbourne, and it’s not uncommon to come across recently painted homes during our assessments. While this may raise suspicion, it’s essential to note that painting doesn’t necessarily indicate a cover-up.
One invaluable tool that every house inspector in Melbourne should wield is the thermal imaging camera. This advanced device can not only detect larger termite nests within walls, thanks to the heat and moisture emitted by termites, but it can also uncover hidden leaks that evade the naked eye.
The Flir E6 Thermal imaging camera, in particular, is highly recommended for building inspectors. It aids in pinpointing issues such as roof leaks, inadequate or poorly installed insulation, concealed leaks from shower recesses and toilets, rising dampness, and more extensive termite infestations.
By staying up-to-date with the latest technology, your inspector can ensure that no hidden defects go unnoticed. We utilize thermal cameras in all our building inspections across Melbourne, frequently identifying concealed roof and bathroom leaks that would otherwise remain undetected. Unlike manual methods, which are both time-consuming and costly, our thermal imaging camera allows for swift and thorough assessments, taking just 30 seconds to 1 minute per room to check for dampness and leaks.
