This investigation investigates the cause of odour nuisance in a non-destructive way through a combination of pressurisation material, smoke and thermography. In this way, we try to find a solution to the problem.
Odour nuisance is annoying and can be a persistent problem in both buildings and homes. It often involves breaks in sanitary sewers or nuisance through connections to areas where undesirable odours are produced.
In buildings, odours are carried by air. So in the first instance we look for air leaks that carry these unwanted odours. Unlike a traditional blower door measurement, these are often very fine air leaks that are more difficult to find.
This way of investigation is mainly a think and search formula. A pressure difference is built up in the building using pressurisation material, to which an investigation with smoke is coupled in order to show where the defects are.
A thermographic analysis can provide support in some cases.
In order to get a complete picture of the situation, in many cases neighbouring areas and/or buildings will also have to be subjected to this inspection.
