Thermal Imaging Camera offers a new, high technology detection system that is quick, effective, and does not cause any damage to houses. This technology gives home-owners visible proof of termite infestation and a record of the location and how extensive the infestation is.
Finding termites can be difficult, yet knowing where they are located is important when deciding on the correct eradication program. Owners can often be unaware of the extent of the termite problems in their homes and may be over-charged by companies who do not accurately identify infestations and subsequent treatments required.
Thermal Imaging Camera detects heat patterns. When termites invade buildings, the normal heat patterns of the walls, floors and roof are changed due to the presence of termites. A thermal camera records this change in heat pattern and indicates the exact location of any termite infestation. A colour image shows hot spots as red or yellow and cold spots as blue or purple, these heat patterns indicate termite infestations. The operator is trained to interpret and analyse the images.
When looking for termites in a house or building, it is important that all areas are inspected as thoroughly and effectively as possible. With Thermal Imaging Camera technology, a camera is used to scan the entire wall, floor and ceiling areas of a room quickly and without any damage to the structure. The heat patterns of the structure are recorded as digital images in the memory of the camera. These images are downloaded to a computer and give a permanent record of the inspection and what was detected.
In summary the advantages of a Thermal Imaging Camera termite inspection are:
- Rapid and effective scanning for termites
- Non-invasive and non-intrusive
- Scans all areas, walls floors, ceilings and outdoor areas
