By carrying out termite inspection, our termite specialist will inspect wood skirting, kitchen sinks, door-frames and look out for any water leakage areas. This area are potential for termite infestation. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to detect termites through a mere visual inspection of the location because subterranean termites can adapt to conceal in structures in extended time and eat wood from the inside. Therefore, it can be noticed when there is visible damage to the structure or termite mud trails. For this reason, it will be a very thoughtful idea to use thermal imaging detection as it is equipped with some advanced tools.
Termite Inspection using Thermal Imaging Detection
As a Termite Specialist in Singapore, thermal imaging detection goes a step further than your typical subterranean termites’ inspection. Termite inspections are important whether you are looking into buying a new home or just maintaining your existing home. But thermal termite detection differs from normal typical termite inspection because it gives the inspector the ability to see a termite problem before the signs become visible to the naked eye. Although the regular termite inspection is cheaper, it is not always accurate in the beginning stages of a termite infestation. Normally, it’s almost in the stage where the average person can tell they have termites, so there really isn’t a need to have an inspection done.
But as termites enjoy warmer temperatures, and a group of termites gives off a large amount of radiated heat and moisture which is detectable on wall surfaces using the thermal imaging cameras. The cameras scan the walls for termite or other pest activity in a matter of seconds and then can take photos of the infested areas for future reference. Temperature differences give off different variances, and the cameras have the technology to see the different variations in surface temperature, therefore being able to detect hot areas that the termites will thrive in. Different variances are shown in the photos through different colors. In the images the tropical regions are shown as yellow or red, while purple and blue tones depict cold areas, this makes spotting infested areas easy. However, out of the 3 Types Of Termites in Singapore, the thermal imaging cannot detect dry wood termites.
Advantages of Thermal Imaging
However, as a result of thermal imaging cameras ability to see variances in temperature, it allows our technicians to accurately identify potential and immediate problems that you may have missed if you were conducting a traditional pest inspection. Surface temperatures are changed by pests and living organisms in an area of your home. This technology means the potential problem areas can be pinpointed without the need of demolishing the structure of the house. An advantage of the thermal imaging camera is that it doesn’t limit the inspection to areas that are accessible. Areas that are hard to reach can be easily scanned with the thermal camera.
Hence, taking advantage of a thermal image detection can prove to be the best choice for homeowners and those looking into becoming a homeowner. The upfront costs for this type of detection proves to be well worth it if you can get a handle on the problem before it gets out of control and causes a substantial amount of damage caused by subterranean termites.
