Our Specialised Equipment

The team at Compass utilises the most advanced industry tools to carry out your comprehensive building and pest inspections. This means we can pick up problems that others may not notice — part of the reason we’re one of Queensland’s most trusted inspection providers.

The following items of equipment, coupled with our highly trained, experienced staff, ensure that we’ll provide you with an accurate, dependable result.

Thermal imaging camera (infrared technology)

This non-invasive, comprehensive and innovative form of technology aids our trained inspectors in determining whether termites might be active in your home.

Termites emit radiated energy/heat that can be identified by these cameras. This infrared technology collects and analyses this energy and is displayed on the screen for our technicians to view.

The heat patterns displayed by this camera allow our inspectors to determine whether there are any termite infestations in the building or residence — to put it simply, it enables us to make the invisible, visible. The thermal imaging camera is used for all of our pre-purchase inspections.

Borescope

This optical device is used to magnify an internal image in those areas that are normally hard to reach, such as inside wall cavities. As this is an invasive technique, it requires permission from the owner of the property before it can be carried out.

It is recommended that this device should be used whenever there is uncertainty about an area of the house. The boresope is used in our special purpose and further investigation inspections; please see our other inspection services for more details on these reports.

Moisture meter

A moisture meter helps determine where problems (for instance moisture or dampness) may be occurring behind plasterboard and other types of wall cladding. It provides an accurate measurement of any dampness — even for areas that may not be visible to the naked eye. The moisture meter is utilised during every inspection we carry out

Sounder

The use of a sounder tool enables us to carefully listen for defects within the building, such as hollow timber, ‘drummy/loose’ tiles or any other issues that may be concealing a serious problem. Because our team comprises experienced inspectors, we can easily interpret the sounds we hear — and then advise you accordingly. The sounder is used during every inspection we carry out.
