The Power of Technology

The 3-Step HomeSafe Process combines a traditional (visual) inspection with advanced infrared and acoustic scans of the property using a state-of-the-art infrared camera, specially designed acoustic sensors and pattern recognition software. With this technology and process, a HomeSafe inspector can detect problems that may otherwise go undetected, including plumbing leaks, water damage, energy loss, electrical problems, structural concerns and termite infestations. Here’s how it works:

Step 1 —Infrared Scan
An infrared scan detects differences in temperature throughout the house. These temperature variations show up as “hot or cold spots” and provide important clues about the house’s condition, problems and potential problems.

  The infrared scan screens for:
  • Internal structural concerns • Roof and ceiling leaks
  • Moisture concerns • Heat/energy loss
  • Potential electrical problems • Insulation deficiencies
  • Termites and other insects • Rats, mice and other pests
  • Pipe and duct work leaks  

Step 2 —Traditional (Visual) Inspection
Once suspicious areas (“hot or cold spots”) are identified by the infrared scan, HomeSafe performs an in-depth visual inspection of the home, paying special attention to the problem areas in order to identify the nature and cause of the problems.

  The visual inspection covers:
  • Electrical • Interior/Exterior
  • Structural • Fireplace
  • Roofing • Insulation
  • Heating/Cooling • Ventilation
  • Plumbing  

Step 3 —Acoustic Inspection (Termites)
If the infrared scan (Step 1) detects signs of moisture suggesting termite activity, HomeSafe employs its high-tech acoustic sensors (patent pending) which can actually detect termite noises that the human ear cannot hear. Suspicious signals are fed into a PocketPC equipped with specially developed Pattern Recognition Software (patent pending) that recognizes and identifies ONLY termite sounds. We also double-check our acoustic findings with a borescope outfitted with a miniature camera that provides VISUAL confirmation of the infestation.

  The acoustic inspection:
  • Will confirm termite infestation
  • Is up to 5 times more effective than traditional termite inspection techniques
  • Is completely non-destructive
  • Is fast and efficient
  • Minimizes chances of human error in detection
  • Uses specialized software to confirm insect sounds on the spot
