Take a look at the photos below. These pictures were taken at various home inspections that our home inspector preformed in Lafayette, Alexandria, Lake Charles, and throughout the rest of Louisiana. In the photos you can see that the circuit breakers & wires have overheated. This can be very dangerous. However, electrical fires happen more then you think. This is one of the most common things that our home inspector finds yet it is also one of the most extremely easy things to correct. Over heating electrical components are one of the many things that we check during our inspection. You will also see several photos of water damage. Water damage is another common thing that our home inspector typically finds at home inspections. In some of the photos the damage is visible to the common eye. In other cases the damage is not visible without our thermal imaging camera. Nothing else can detect that type of moisture defect other then infrared. The sooner that you can catch water damage the better. Once signs start to show in your home the problem can be more costly to fix.

Thermal Imaging

In this picture you can see moisture damage that is a result from a leaky roof. The roof leaked down from the ceiling and into the wall. The black color that you see in this picture is water damage.

Plain-sight View

This picture shows overheating. You can see that the wire and circuit breaker are overheating. Usually this is due to some type of electrical issue. If this is left untreated then it can cause a fire or a power outage.

This photo is a three phase circuit breaker overheating in a commercial facility. You can see that the average temperature for the breaker should be in the low 80°F or 90°F range, but this breaker was at 167°F.

Thermal Imaging

In this photo you can see moisture damage located in the ceiling. Through thermal imaging you can see that the area of moisture damage is much more extension then it is to the naked eye.

Plain-sight View

In this photo you can see the moisture damage. Only a few feet of moisture damage is visible in this photo. However, in realty the moisture damage covered several feet.

This is another example of moisture damage that was found during a home inspection. In this particular case the water damage was hardly visible.

Here you can see water damage next to a window in a home.

Not visible with the naked eye

In this picture you can see an amp meter. Amp meters are used to determine the load of the circuit. We are verifying the heat that is being produced by the circuit. We also to make sure that the circuit is not overload.

Moisture Detector

This device is used to detect moisture. You can see in the photos below that it detected a significant amount of moisture next to a gutter.

Gutter Removal

Once we detected the damage we had to remove that section to get to the root of the problem.

Damage

In this photo you see the damaged that was caused to the structure.

Thermal Imaging

In this photo you can see the presence of moisture which resulted in pink mold forming on the wall.

In this picture you can see the mold pattern that formed.
