Our thermal imaging leak detection service can show you the areas of your property that you wouldn’t get to see otherwise and will give you quick and simple answers regarding your possible leak and where it has started within the premises.

A thermal imaging camera will not specifically identify water. Instead, a thermal imaging camera measures the impact that water has toward the temperature of surfaces surrounding the leak due to the evaporation process. Water will usually be colder than the residual heat in the area that it is located in the property. That is unless the water has been heated by a boiler system, in which case it is likely that it will be warmer than the area that thermal imaging leak detection has located that there is a problem.

If there has been a leak detected then it will have contributed to a spread of damp, which will make identifying the location of the problem with thermal imaging leak detection even easier. This is a godsend for securing your property against damp problems which have the ability to lead to mould and possible structural and health issues.

As pipes will run throughout the walls and floors of premises, it is possible for you to have developed a leak without having realised it. Due to its location not being immediately visible, it can also make trying to find the leak and its origin, a veritable nightmare without our thermal imaging leak detection service.
By having a visual inspection that uses thermal imaging conducted, it will quickly highlight the leak and the extent to how much this has spread and affected the property. Not only this, but it will also allow you an insight into the areas of your house that you wouldn’t get to see otherwise such as the inside of cavity walls or crawl spaces. Learn about your property and how to fix your leak problem today.

You might also have found that there is an opening or break somewhere in the outer walls or roof of your property that has allowed residual rainwater to collect and cause damage to the structure of the premises. But with a thermal imaging for water leak detection survey, this will also be brought to light so that no stone is left unturned and you can be assured that your property has been protected against any further water-based problems.

We cannot stress enough just how vital this thermal imaging leak detection service is at keeping your house in the best condition it can be. Unfortunately, issues with moisture and water in a building can be particularly hard to detect as there may not be any signs until water starts coming through walls and ceilings that is!
Don’t let a tidal wave sweep away your prized possessions and cause damage to your personal and valuable property by stopping the leak in its tracks with a thermal imaging leak detection survey that will give you the answers you seek and more.


A thermal imaging, or FLIR, camera works by detecting the infrared radiation of a given object, person or animal based on the surface temperature. Due to this, and the fact that this practice is both non-contact and non-invasive it means that there are many applications and uses for this excellent technology.   

Thermal imaging cameras have a wide range of applications and uses across an array of different industries and professions. The fact that a thermal imaging camera is able to produce results without any contact or invasion means that you can get easy and accurate answers.

As well as this, it also allows for whatever it is that is being assessed to be in operation during the survey which can be far more insightful than other methods. The industries that we most frequently conduct surveys for are; aerospace, automotive, buildings, chemical, electrical, mechanical, medical, pest control and veterinary.

Within these industries are multiple different applications for the effective use of thermal imaging cameras and their fantastic infrared detection technology. 

Yes, a thermal imaging camera can indeed be used during the daytime and daylight hours. The reason for this is because a FLIR camera contains a special lens. What this lens does is that it focuses the heat given off of whatever it is that is being assessed onto a detector that is sensitive to heat. Therefore, a thermal imaging camera is not affected by light and produces equally brilliant results during the day as it would at night too. 

Once you are aware that you require a thermal imaging survey then it is time to either pick up the phone to give us a call or fill out the contact for that can be found on every page of this website. We will then arrange a time that is convenient for you to be able to come and provide a free quote for the cost of the service you require. If you have already received a quote from another company, inform us of this for us to beat their price. Then it is time to get down to business, our thermal imaging survey specialists will conduct a thorough survey of whatever you require. Once we are satisfied that we have a comprehensive assessment of the given subject of the survey then we will process the data of this. We provide a report of the survey which outlines the findings of it and explains it in a way that can e understood and that will include the images from the survey too. 

A thermal imaging survey will vary in cost, depending on multiple factors. Our service is entirely mobile as we can transport our thermal imaging cameras to wherever they are needed. If you are very far away from on of our offices then this may factor into the cost of your survey. Typically, a thermal imaging survey will be based around a day rate. This is subject to change by factors such as; the selected service, the necessary equipment to complete the survey, the time taken to complete the survey or other factors that are also subject to change.
