This is the time of year we have water leaking into our homes and businesses.  Often this water leak does not show itself inside the building anywhere near where the leak originates.  Before infrared cameras were uses for leak detection we had to remove the sheetrock and other wall coverings to expose where the water is traveling.  Sometimes we would have to remove large areas of wall or ceiling coverings to pinpoint the water leak causing great stress on the home or business owner.  This destruction and its repairs cause longer repair times at a greater expense.  Now with infrared cameras, and the correct conditions, we are able to follow the water path nearer to its source.   With the infrared camera, and backing up its findings with a pinless moisture meter, we are able to detect water leaks in a totally non-invasive manner and usually are able to do this inspection in under one hour.
