Thermal scans are a non-disruptive method of scanning a surface to find potential problems like heat escaping through cracks & crevices, frigid incoming air or moisture that may be leaking inside.

If you suspect that you have mold in your residence or building, call Integrity for a mold assessment and air quality analysis.
