Leaking Dishwasher Found Using Infrared

Have you noticed water laying around your kitchen that shouldn’t be there?

A dishwasher leak, fridge leak or any other leaks in your kitchen can get very ugly. Case in point below.

Recently a thermal imaging inspector picked up a much bigger problem then he was first called out for. The home owner noticed water on their kitchen floor, and wasn’t really sure where the leak was coming from. After establishing it was a problem with the dish washer, the infrared camera then picked up moisture all through the surrounding wall!

If you look closely at this infrared image below,  you’ll see the dark blue area where the arrows are pointing. This is water behind the wall that could cause rot and all sorts of issues.

If it wasn’t for the thermal imaging camera, this water damage would not have been detected!
