Thermal cameras are used to locate moisture hidden from the naked eye within an environment. Commercial-grade thermal cameras are widely used equipments in water damage and repair businesses. Their primary application is in determining hidden sources of content inside the wall. Wall is a place where moisture cannot be located with bare eyes and is susceptible to long-lasting problems that could spread throughout the house.
In our line of job that requires repairing water damaged homes in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada region, we extensively use this device to assess any water damage to the property. And we are partial to the Flir Thermal Camera for this end due to its outstanding performance in locating hidden moisture sources.
In one situation we had a customer with a leaking roof in Las Vegas, and he was unsure if the water had trickled down into the walls. Although the walls were dry to the touch, we were worried that there was water inside the walls. We used our thermal camera to verify that there was water inside the walls.

- Insufficient, missing and damaged insulation;
