ACME Detection Non-Invasive Method

You won’t have to tear up your expensive kitchen floor when the leak is actually in the bathroom.

Utility Line Mapping

Before new construction can begin on a property, the utility line map should be referenced. At ACME Detection, we are one of the first businesses on call for this service in Boulder, CO, and the surrounding area. These utility lines can include the following:

  • Gas lines
  • Electrical lines
  • Phone lines
  • Cable lines
  • Plumbing lines

These are often the most common utility lines found in Boulder. With the team of professionals from ACME Detection and our tools dedicated to this process, you can have any lines that are buried identified. In many cases, we are able to locate wires that are not published on county or city maps. This could be dangerous for you in the future if you did not know they were there. 

Utility Line Locating

It is essential that all lines are located and marked before your construction can begin. Our team will always maintain a level of professionalism, keeping your property in mind when locating the lines and avoiding causing damage to your property or destroying anything that may be near the lines.

Our technicians use plans that are already in place and inspect the property to mark the lines so that safe construction can continue moving forward with the help of a locator. We know what types of lines should be there, and we take our time in case we come across lines that were not listed on any of the property maps. These lines should be color-coded, based on Colorado’s line requirements for each type of utility. Lines need to be checked to make sure they are not damaged and will not cause any damage to the surrounding areas. 

Infrared Imaging

In order to have the most accurate home or property inspection, you want to detect life and heat sources with the help of infrared imaging. Without even having to enter a structure, we can locate a problem you may have and determine how extensive the damage may be. This allows us to avoid any damage to the property or any need to tear into your home to inspect the damage. Infrared imaging can be used to identify the following:

  • Mold and moisture in your home
  • The energy that is leaving or entering your home through holes
  • Overworked electrical outlets that cannot be seen

The infrared imaging works well in roof or slab detection to see where mold and moisture are being held so that the source can be identified. You can also see the extent of the damage with infrared imaging, which can help you make a sound decision on how to move forward with repairs.

Paint discoloration spots. When wallboard gets wet from the inside it will often show distenct water marks or staining on the painted surface.

Slab Leaks

A slab leak can be a major headache if not addressed in a timely manner and unfortunately every year we run into people who wait too long to call us.

As any pool owner knows, it is important to regularly check water levels as they are a sure sign of your pool’s health. *

The deeper the leak is, the harder is to detect accurately. While our normal accuracy is less than the depth of the leak, we guarantee to be within twice the depth of the leak, or you will get a full refund.
