Tropical Hong Kong has high humidity and rainfall during the summer, and both can cause damage to the building fabric and mould.

Infrared inspection is one tool for inspecting buildings to idendify moisture problems. And should be part of your Planned Preventative Maintenance plan.

How does it work?

All objects have a surface temperature and features with a void, for example a damp wall, will have slightly different temperature, but temperature is not visible to the naked eye, infrared camera shows us the temperature image to detect problems.

Where delamination occurs that void beneath the surface creates a differents slightly temperature profile, and although invisible to us, it is revealed with our infrared camera.
