For us, technology and building and pest inspections go hand in hand. Along with our years of experience, we pack our expensive pieces of kit for all our building and pest inspections. One of these is a Termatrac.
The Termatrac lets us see through walls so to speak through thermal imaging. Why do we need thermal imaging when looking at walls?….TERMITES.
Despite their size, the sheer mass of termites that inhabit a colony generates heat. And they’re hot – 35c! When the meter is above 35 degrees it means the presence of termites.
In the photo, the meter on the thermal image is showing 26.1c. If you’re thinking the termites have just had a cold shower, it was in fact reading the thermal mass of a possum.
Whilst we detect the existence of a possum using the roof cavity as its home, we’re not the company that does the eviction. There are specialist possum catchers who carefully remove and relocate possums.
If we detect a thermal mass of 35c and above, we know exactly where we need to investigate further and see how much damage has been done.
Maintenance of the Technology
Being an expensive and sensitive piece of equipment, we keep the Termatrac maintained according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Also, we are trained and certified by the manufacturer that we are competent in using the equipment.
