TORONTO, July 15, 2013 /CNW/ - In the wake of the storm that battered the Greater Toronto Area and flooded thousands of basements last week, Toronto home inspection company Carson Dunlop announced today the launch of their new thermal imaging inspection service. Home buyers now have the option of having their Carson Dunlop home inspector use an infrared camera to detect evidence of water leaks.
"As we saw last week, water is often a significant source of problems in a home. In many cases, a visual inspection alone cannot detect all of the hidden leakage problems," explained Graham Clarke, Vice President of Engineering at Carson Dunlop. "This technology allows us to see the normally invisible signature of wet building materials in a home."
Water issues that are not dealt with in a timely manner can lead to both structural and air quality problems.
To celebrate the company's 35 years in the home inspection business, Carson Dunlop is responding to the recent flooding crisis by including a thermal imaging inspection free with every home buyer's inspection for the next 35 days.
