Forensic inspection / leak detection

A forensic leak detection is a persevering inspection to find the right, exact cause of a moisture problem. This means that the supply and drainage pipes are inspected for possible leaks, inside as well as outside the house. This can be done destructively and non-destructively. During for example an inspection of the roof, a piece of lead can be bended if necessary. For investigating the ground level zone a tile can be removed from the tiling.

What this can contain:

  • inspection of the pipe system (supply and drainage; inside and outside the building)
  • inspection of the roof
  • inspection of the ground level zone
  • inspection of the windows and doors

A complete forensic inspection can be done with different methods to come to a conclusive analysis.

“Forensic” inspection methods can be:

  • a visual inspection
  • a moisture measurement in depth
  • a destructive inspection
  • an inspection with a HD sewer camera
  • a smoke gas leak detection (1,2-ethynediol)
  • a traceable gas leak detection with N95-H5 (H10)
  • a digital pressure test (supply pipes and central heating pipes)
  • a HD infrared inspection
  • a high frequency scanning (GANN UNI 1 with B50 probe) (coloured mapping)
  • fluorescent dyes
  • datalogging °C, rH, Pa, Td, Tw
  • water pressure
  • dew point determination
  • wet bulb temperature measurement (ground floor)
  • sonar scanning, pipe seeker
  • calcium carbide test
  • pyrometer
  • odour detection
  • mould analysis
  • Kasten tube test, porosity measurement
  • constructive vapour diffusion calculation (theoretic approach)
  • tear measurement and follow-up
  • a polarisation recording
  • ground level zone determination with cross section diagram
  • digital saturation simulation
  • diagonal analysis
  • photographic analysis shell construction
  • vapour pressure and ventilation determination under the building
  • analysis solvable salts
  • orientation and turbulence determination (driving rain)
  • history comparison (causal connection work / damage period)
  • insurance technical analysis
  • liability analyses
  • etc.
Actual causes are often not as obvious as people thought
