Multifamily apartment owners know that water intrusion behind walls, over ceilings, and under floors is often impossible to detect until the problem is excessive and visible to the naked eye. Furthermore, unaddressed water intrusion can lead to mold growth and even structural damage— no doubt, a costly problem.

Technology continues to change the way we live and work, including the availability for tools for identifying water intrusion.
Infrared Thermography (IT) with a digital camera, is a technique that produces images of infrared light that are invisible to the human eye. The light is emitted by objects due to the heat signature or lack thereof. Using an infrared camera will result in an image that looks a like an impressionist painting, but can tell the building owner plenty about the operating condition of the structure.
