ESNJ realizes that whether you need to restore property from moisture, mold, or fire damage, we know the value of having comprehensive and accurate information at your fingertips. Our customers need information so they can get their property restored now and one time; as opposed to finding “new damage.”
Thermal imaging tools integrated with moisture meters can speed up the post-loss recovery process, improve repair quality, and add to contractor credibility. A thermal imaging camera can help us identify moisture areas faster and can lead to more accurate inspections with fewer call backs for verification by insurance companies. Many times, a good thermal image sent via email may be sufficient documentation to authorize additional work, leading to improved efficiency in the repair process.
ESNJ is more easily able to evaluate water damage quickly and accurately after a hurricane or other storm event. This can be a challenge using traditional tools, especially pin-less (non-invasive) moisture meters.
Using a thermal imaging camera along with a moisture meter is much more accurate. These cameras work by detecting the infrared radiation emitted by objects in the scene. The sensor takes the energy and translates it into a visible image. The viewer sees temperatures in the image as a range of colors: red, orange and yellow indicate heat, while dark blue, black or purple signifies colder temperatures associated with evaporation or water leaks and damage. Using this type of equipment speeds up the process and tracks the source of the leak—providing us with a visual to guide us, and to then confirm where the damage is located.
