MSX adds key details from the onboard visible light camera to the entire infrared
image in real time. The result: an all-in-one thermal picture with numbers, labels, and other structural features intact so you’ll instantly recognize where the heat issue is.
The CSI home inspection is equipted with the ultimate inspection tool. Gain the competitive advantage and take care of more customers. Blow them away with dramatic MSX thermal images that clearly reveal problems from sources of energy loss, moisture intrusion and structural issues to overheating electrical and mechanical equipment and also to detect leaks and insulation problems you can’t see with the naked eye.

For years, really tall chimneys and hidden valleys on big roofs have been a most
dificult places to inspect. Most home inspectors really do try to get to every square inch of the roof with their own two eyes. However, the CSI home inspection is equipted with a drone that could hover over your property maximum range of over 1000 feet and 30 minutes of flight time on a battery, CSI home inspection is more than well-equipped to check out your roof, chimney, or anything else that is just too high for a person to reach safely. We are dedicated to provide valuable services to our clients.
According to an article for Homes & Gardens, moisture and drainage is the single most common problem found
during home inspections no matter what the home is made of or where it’s built. Beyond that, sometimes you can’t even see the moisture. So how can you tell when walls, building material, or foundations have been compromised – which could lead to problems later on with structural integrity, not to mention atmospheric pollutants like mold, fungus, and bacteria?
Using a moisuture meter to find "hidden moisture" (for example, moisture that may exist behind drywall in the wall cavity), is the
only way to determine how to remedy the situation. Both drywall and wood materials can tolerate a certain degree of water damage as long as they are dried out properly. If moisture remains, things like dry rot, pest infestation, mold growth, and general loss of structural integrity can occur. Relying on a visual inspection without using a moisture meter will only cause more extensive problems down the road.
Exposure to high levels of microwave radiation can cause health problems due to extreme heat
such as cataracts and burns. While most microwave oven leaks are too small to create such
significant health risks, be on the safe side and test any microwave that appears damaged or that
is more than nine years old. If the tester displays a measurement, anything about 5 mW/cm2 at a
distance of 5 cm (2 inches) is cause for concern.
Understand the danger. Microwave radiation is the same kind of "radiation" as visible light and
radio waves, not the ionizing radiation that can cause cancer or radioactivity. The only known risk
of a leaking microwave is the high levels of heat it produces. This is most dangerous to the eye
(where it can lead to cataracts) and the testes (where it can cause temporary sterility). Extreme
levels of microwave radiation can cause skin burns. If you do not notice any symptoms and you
stop using the leaking microwave, lasting damage is very unlikely.
Carbon monoxide (known by the chemical abbreviation CO) is often referred to as a “silent killer.” This toxic gas is produced by malfunctioning fuel-burning devices or by other common household appliances. It has no smell and can’t be seen with the naked eye but is fatal to humans in relatively small doses. Even when it isn’t fatal, it can cause lasting health effects in the vascular and pulmonary systems. As home inspector, we have an opportunity to have a positive impact on this by informing clients about the CO leakage and risks of CO poisoning and recommending CO alarms. CSI Home Inspection always recommend installing approved CO alarms outside of each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms on each level and in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations for safety and worrying about possible carbon monoxide problems at home.
Home inspectors are actually required to use only a few types of equipment. In theory, an inspector could perform an inspection that complies with the InterNACHI Standards of Practice using only two pieces of equipment: a flashlight and an electrical tester capable of testing ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) devices. However, there is equipment an inspector needs in order to perform inspections safely and thoroughly. Self leveling laser level is one of the tools that we use to check for foundation problems. Houses settle over time, and a little unevenness isn’t cause for panic. At the same time, you’ll want to be alert to these warning signs that more dramatic changes are taking place and by finding the early warning signs of foundation troubles can head off problems that ultimately could cost tens of thousands of dollars to fix. The sooner you identify potential problems, the easier and less expensive to fix them.
