By using an infrared camera that produces images of heat radiation, a technician can detect the existence of moisture inside of walls that cannot be seen by the human eye. Moisture and similar conditions can promote mold growth. Mold related problems can be detected by the camera before there are signs that are visible or detectable by a person other senses such as smell.

The Use of Infrared Cameras in Detecting Roof Leaks

The use of infrared cameras in detecting roof leaks has empowered the roofing industry. Before the use of infrared, roofing professionals had to go to great lengths to detect leaks caused by moisture build-up or mold, especially in the easy to build but hard to maintain flat roofs that have become exceedingly popular in recent years. Now, time and resources that were used in the past to scout the problem can be used to solve the issue.

Concrete and Asphalt Bridge Deck Delamination – Gary Strahan, CEO Infrared Cameras Inc.

Our nation’s bridges account for a substantial component in highway infrastructure.  In particular the reinforced concrete decking used to construct these bridges is continuously being degraded due to normal traffic and environmental exposure.  This degradation is exacerbated in climatic regions where de-icing chlorides are used and in coastal regions where bridges are exposed to high salt air concentrations.
