Every home inspector employed at John Robinson’s Inspection Group, shows up to each and every home inspection equipped with thousands of dollars worth of home inspection tools to provide our San Diego and Southern California home inspection clients with the best home inspection services money can buy. However, the one home inspection tool we would never leave our office without is our thermal imaging camera. This one tool has allowed us to uncover hidden defects behind wall coverings, ceilings and floors that would have otherwise gone undetected. We use this camera to locate hidden plumbing leaks, roof leaks, moisture intrusion, overheating electrical circuits and missing insulation that would not be visible with the naked eye alone or without destructive testing.
During a recent San Diego Home Inspection, a hidden plumbing leak was discovered only after the use of our thermal imaging camera or Forward Looking Infrared device. If this leak would have been left undetected, it would have been conducive to the attraction of termites and mold growths and/or structural damage, potentially costing our clients thousands of dollars in repairs after moving into their brand new home.
