Damp is also a major issue within the building sector. ThermoSurvey can identify areas of damp as well as potential water ingress points. By using a thermal imaging camera as well as a humidity meter, the consultants can identify where the higher areas of moisture are, even if it may not be visible to the naked eye.
This will lead ThermoSurvey to find a source of water ingress.
A typical project time-frame for Damp Surveys are dependent on a number of key factors but can last as little as one day for a standard construction 3 bedroom residential property, to several days on larger commercial units and rural estates.
The image on the right is a water leak within a heating system feeding 12 flats and 5 retail units that had stopped working 4 days before Christmas. ThermoSurvey found the source of the leak to a 1 foot accuracy, encased in deep concrete at the very base of this building allowing engineers to fix the leak and restore heat to the building.
Another case client feedback-:
“Hi Anthony we met shortly before Christmas when you kindly came out to provide your expertise on where my under floor central heating leak was likely to be.
I took the plunge last week and ripped up a small section of travertine kitchen floor around the area that you suggested and gratefully you were spot on, saving me lots of time, money and grief. I was dreading having to rip up the travertine and oak floors! Thanks again for your help.”
