Certified Infrared Inspections in Ottawa and Montreal - Mold Busters

Ottawa & Montreal

If you’re looking for professional infrared inspections in Ottawa or Montreal, you came in to the right place.

Remember that water gives rise to mold growth; therefore, wherever there is a moisture problem, there will likely be a mold problem. Find the moisture problem, and you will find the source of the mold.

Given that leaks, spills, moisture buildup and water damage show up easily in a thermal image, infrared cameras are a mold inspector’s best friend.

What’s more, they are completely non-contact and non-destructive, so you don’t have to tear up any walls or do any damage to your property.

We use today’s best high-resolution thermal imaging cameras to detect mold growth and moisture problems like condensation, leaks and water intrusion.

Call Mold Busters today and schedule an infrared inspection in Montreal or Ottawa! Or, if you’d rather do it yourself, call us and ask about our thermal imaging camera rentals.

Types of infrared inspections

Depending on your needs, our certified thermographers provide a variety of thermal imaging services, including general building envelope surveys, infrared electrical inspections, infrared mechanical inspections, predictive maintenance, water damage inspection, insulation inspection, boiler inspection, radiant floor inspection and commercial energy audit.

These thermal imaging inspections allow inspectors to detect not only moisture and mold problems, but also other construction issues without disturbing or damaging the structure of the home.

Just take a look at the various problems uncovered during an infrared inspection:

  • Roof leaks
  • Missing insulation
  • Heat loss
  • Foundation cracks
  • Overheating or dangerous electrical components
  • Faulty wiring
  • Failing mechanical equipment

Detect mold with thermal imaging cameras

An infrared camera (also known as a thermal imager or a thermal imaging camera) measures the infrared radiation (heat) given off by objects and use it to form an image that, ultimately, displays the temperatures and moisture levels in your home.

A complete infrared inspection of your home will detect temperature abnormalities behind walls and under floors, which serve as good indicators of problematic areas.

With this information, our inspectors can identify moisture problems and construction issues in your home without having to knock down any walls or tear up any floors. This reduces further damage and costs.

Advantages of infrared surveys

The images created by an infrared camera are known as thermograms, and they can reveal a multitude of problems related to building construction and safety, including

  • Cracks in building foundation
  • Leaking pipes
  • Dangerous electrical work
  • Leaky roofs
  • Moisture intrusion
  • Inefficient or malfunctioning HVAC systems
  • Poor or missing insulation
  • Mold growth

These are all problems that are difficult to detect with a simple visual inspection, and this is what makes infrared cameras such an effective and convenient tool.

Another advantage of thermal imaging inspections is that they are non-destructive, meaning they don’t require you to cut holes in your walls, floors or ceilings in order to check hard-to-reach or inaccessible spaces.
