Specialist Mould, Moisture and Condensation Inspection and Detection Equipment

Inspecting for the presence of moisture, condensation and mould - whether the presence of moisture has already been established or suspected or whether its presence is unclear - involves the marrying of experience and training with sophisticated and powerful equipment. We invest thousands of dollars in the correct equipment to thoroughly analyse any property and locate any moisture that may be present.

Moisture Detectors

Moisture Detection instruments can both detect and measure moisture in carpet, plaster walls, sold walls, concrete slabs, brickwork and the internal atmosphere. Dampco have a complete range of moisture metres.
  • Infra Red Thermal Imaging Inspection Camera - Infra red thermal imaging inspection cameras measure the difference in temperature on any given surface. Therefore, potential damp patches can be identified, even if they cannot be visually inspected or measured with a traditional moisture metre which relies on touch to gain a measurement.
  • Inspection Cameras detect Moisture in Inaccessible Damp Areas in subfloor, ceiling and wall cavities - Our camera based inspection cameras can detect or search for moisture in ductwork, behind wall cavities and in other visually inaccessible areas.
  • Mould Spore Analysers - Our mobile particle samplers can identify elevated airborne particles/mould spores and we use them to provide before and after readings of areas that are cleaned by Dampco.
