Q: How can infrared scanning
help my home?
A: Infrared scanning can prevent continued energy loses,
fire hazards, locate pests/termites and identify leaks
and past moisture damage.
Q: What kind of problems can be identified with IR
A: Leaking roofs, shower pans and pipes, moisture in
wood, carpet and vinyl floors, insulation, dangerous
electrical connections, mold and mildew growth, and
identification of mice, pests and termites are but a few
of the things IR can see.
Q: Will you have to destroy any walls or structures
to examine my home?
A: NO. Our scanning is non-invasive and will create no
more noise than a regular camera. Nothing in your home
will be affected.
Q: How will I know the results of the IR scan?
A: While we are at your home, we will show you if we are
seeing anything abnormal. We may even ask you to mark
problem areas with "blue tape" for future reference. In
addition will will provide you with a detailed report
which will itemize any problem areas with pictures
included. We also will be glad to tell you that your
home is in great shape.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: It depends on a number of issues. Do you want your
entire house scanned or do you want a specific problem
- Area Scanning $150.00
- Entire House (3000 s/f and under) $279.00
(3000 s/f to 4999 s/f) $359.00
(5000 s/f and up) $479.00
Q: How often should I do this?
A: Infrared scanning of households is a relatively new
technology. Preventative maintenance is often 1/4 of the
cost of emergency repairs. We think between 18 and 24
months would be more than sufficient. I am sure your
insurance company would look favorably upon any effort
to safeguard the condition of your home.
