Protect Your Investment with Thermal Imaging & Ozone Shock Treatment

Thermal Imaging or Infrared Cameras can be an invaluable tool during a home inspection that can save the home inspector time and consequently the home buyer money.

The infrared camera can be used to detect:

  • Insulation deficiencies

  • Missing insulation

  • Insufficient/reduced insulation performance

  • Air Infiltration and exfiltration

  • Air flow around doors, windows and attic hatches

  • Moisture impregnated materials

  • Roofing or wall materials that have "below surface" moisture accumulation

  • Materials that are "wet" at the surface (evaporation of the moisture)

  • Loss of gas materials in high efficient windows

  • Under "normal" conditions, windows have a reflective nature to the longwave infrared cameras that are normally used for home inspection

  • Presence of insects and other vermin

  • It is not the individual insect that will be detected, but rather the nest or large accumulation of a large number of them

  • A larger animal can be detected if it is leaning against the wall and its body heat conducts through the wall material

  • Electrical hazards

  • Overloaded circuits can be easily detected with an infrared camera

  • Other unsafe situations, such as poor connections

  • Poor workmanship issues

  • The infrared camera can, in certain circumstances, can find issues when an installation has not been carried out correctly

How Can the Thermal Imaging Camera "See" These Issues?

The Thermal Imaging camera does not detect the temperature; rather it detects infrared energy that is emitted, reflected and possibly transmitted from/through a surface. Normally, a temperature difference is required to produce various levels of energy that the camera "sees." This difference in heat flow, as displayed by the thermal imaging camera can be interpreted to monitor a particular condition of an object or assembly. The physical change of state of water (evaporation) will cool the surface allowing the thermal imaging camera to detect this situation.

Ozone Shock Treatment

Indoor air pollution is a common problem in businesses, homes or industrial premises. Mould, fungus and other sources of air contamination can trigger allergies, asthma, bacterial or viral infections – or just smell bad. Ozone Shock Treatment improves air quality by generating the ozone necessary to eliminate microorganisms, unpleasant smells, and residual smoke odors from fires. After doing its job, ozone quickly turns back into oxygen.

Ozone Contains Three Atoms of Oxygen

Ozone, sometimes called ‘activated oxygen,’ contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the normal two. Oxygen in this form is a powerful sterilizer that can destroy bacteria, viruses and odors on contact. Ozone is often created in nature, usually as a result of lightning strikes. Our machines produce ozone by passing dried, oxygen-containing gas through an electrical field that causes the oxygen molecules to ‘split’.

Neutralizes Organic Odors

Ozone will neutralize virtually all organic odors, specifically those containing carbon as their base element – the extra oxygen atom destroys the contaminant by oxidation.

Mould and Mildew Elimination

Ozone will destroy bacteria and fungus as well as eliminating pet smells and cooking odors. Smoke odor molecules that infiltrate porous surfaces can be permanently removed and ozone will work on the most stubborn odor molecules, such as protein. Odors associated with decay – like freezer failure – do not respond well to normal chemical deodorizing attempts, but ozone can neutralize even these contaminants. After treatment, ozone quickly turns back into oxygen so that no harmful by-products remain.

An ozone shock treatment procedure eliminates odors and contamination from the air and surfaces within a confined area where the treatment is deployed. Then with regular and ongoing applications, it can provide continuous control over recurring contamination.

While performing a shock treatment, make sure that all people, pets, plants and other animals are not in the area to be treated.

Sick House Syndrome

Sick house syndrome describes a situation where a building’s occupants suffer physical discomfort as a result of spending time within a given space. Frequent itchiness, headaches, dizziness and skin ailments, are some of the common symptoms.

Sick house syndrome has several causes:

  • Poor air quality/poor ventilation

  • Chemicals that enter the air from cleaning products, etc.

  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) often associated with “a new smell”

  • Increased levels of moisture in newer tightly sealed energy efficient homes

  • Dust mites in humid environments

Our ozone shock treatment is an all-natural solution that has proven effective in eliminating surface moulds and dust mites. Ozone also successfully breaks down the VOCs associated with sick house syndrome. If you have a new home, new carpets or fresh paint, an Ozone shock treatment will help in combatting those overly strong odours.
