Technologicaly Advanced Termite Detection
Termite inspections require a high level of skill and the right equipment! It is important to make sure that your inspector has specialised termite qualifications, is experienced and has the latest in termite detection equipment.
State of the Art Thermal & Moisture Detectors to Find Termite Infestations
Thermal imaging cameras and moisture detectors offer a new, high technology detection system that is quick, effective, and does not damage your house like drilling and poking. It is non-destructive.
We use state of the art thermal imaging technology backed up by moisture detection to quickly and accurately detect termite infestations in houses and other buildings. Many home owners are often not aware that their home may be infested with termites, and can be over-charged by dodgy operators who do not accurately identify a termite problem and request costly treatments or prevention strategies. Our termite detection equipment is designed to safe guard homeowners by giving them visible proof of a termite infestation and a record of the extent of the infestation.
How Do Thermal Cameras Work to Detect Termites?
Termites are cold-blooded, however they generate heat when the bacteria in their gut breaks down and digests cellulose which is the main component of wood.
A thermal camera will pick up images of heat generation in walls, floors and or ceilings where there should be no heat. If a heat signature is found in your home caused by termites the image can be stored in the memory, to be viewed later as a permanent record of what the inspection found. This is extremely useful after treatment to ensure all the termites have been eradicated.
We include follow-up inspections using the thermal cameras as part of every termite treatment which ensures the termites have been eradicated. As a general rule we recommend all properties in termite prone areas undergo an annual inspection, especially in the warmer months.
The advantages of a Thermal camera inspection include:
- Rapid, effective termite scanning
- Non-destructive detection method
- Scans all areas in your home including walls, floors, ceilings, sheds and outdoor areas
- Environmentally friendly
- No radiation or chemicals used
- No damage to the building
- Quick and immediate information on the location and extent of the termite infestation
- Accurately locates where to apply chemicals for the best effect
- Thermal images provide evidence and proof of infestation which is useful for later reference.
The image above shows a thermal image of a termite infestation in the corner of a room.
If there were no termites present the entire wall should be a uniform purple colour.
