Michigan Infrared Leak Detectives Succeed Again!
When It Comes To Our Homes, There Are 2 Kinds of Leaks. The Ones You Fixed . . . and The Ones You Don’t Know About
There is a famous quote that goes something like this: ‘I don’t know why mothers love them. All babies do is leak at both ends.’ (Douglas Feaver). Funny, but true.
When you think about it, our homes are much the same. With all of their imperfections, we still love them. And, it seems that we’re never done caring for or paying for them.
Being in the Leak Detection Business, we see that leaks come in two varieties: the big, obvious ones that you know about (and fixed), and the other kind – the ones that are lurking in your walls or structure.
You can do the math. Guess which leak costs you the most? The latent, ‘hidden’ leaks are. They are difficult to diagnose or find – let alone pinpoint. That is, until now.
Maybe you smell ‘mildew.‘ People used to guess that it was just because the house was ‘closed up’ for awhile. But, now, there is no more need for ‘guesswork.’ Modern technology (taken from the military over 30 years ago) has brought us Infrared Thermal Imaging.
We are a qualified MI Thermal Imaging Survey Company, specializing in Leak Detection services… we find all kinds of things! Slowly dripping – leaks in pipes (hidden inside walls) – are one of the most common things. Anyone who has a child or spouse with Asthma or allergies can tell you that is not a good thing.
Sometimes , when doing Moisture detection, we find that this moisture has incubated and can accelerate into mold. Health issues aside, there are ‘other‘ leaks that you may have – and don’t know about – that we uncover.
Recently, here in Michigan, many homes have used a particular brand of OSB woodgrain textured siding that has been found to leak, deteriorate, absorb water, and seep into the structure behind it – causing structural damage to the framing of the dwelling.
Often, these sort of leaks go undetected until it is too late. Our exterior Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections of the siding, roof, skylites, and windows turn up evidence of faulty workmanship, missing flashings, and bad building design. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that our Thermal Survey Inspection camera enables us to ‘see’ what the human eye cannot. And, for the same reason that a Doctor relies on X-Rays to ‘look inside’ his patient to learn more, so do we.
What are company is really doing when surveying your home, is taking a sneak ‘peek’ inside without being invasive or destructive. The Infrared Thermal Imager or Video that we use provides us hard-copy evidence of what is going on ‘behind the scenes.‘
And, by catching this 2nd kind of leak EARLY – the kind that you didn’t know about (until now) – it SAVES you money. In our Building Performance Industry lingo , we call this Predictive Maintenance.
We help you look for things (moisture detection, Leaks, Heat Loss, Electrical issues, and structural issues) BEFORE a simple ‘fix‘ becomes a catastrophe. Those cost you needless expense, heartache, disruption of your property – and your life.
Thermal Imaging, when used by our in-house Builder of over 30 years,
gives you a unique perspective that will ensure that your home or structure is a living space that is healthy, safe, energy-efficient, and kind to the environment.
At the beginning, we said that a home is much like that ‘baby’ who ‘leaks’ at both ends – and it seems that we never stop caring for them or spending on them.
The good news, here, is that Infravision LLC – unlike your Doctor - DOES make house calls. We save you unnecessary damage and excessive repair cost by doing an Infrared Thermal Imaging Survey early on your home or business. This will help you to fix the most important leak of all- the one in YOUR WALLET.
