My basement is finished and there are signs that I have leaks or some mold. The smell is not very strong but I can feel it for the first few seconds when I enter the basement, after that it instantly disappears in the sense that I can not smell it anymore.
I am planning to rent a infrared thermal camera to see if this can help with locating the problem. Is such a camera effective in these situations ?
PS: I have also seen some DIY or consumer grade cameras which can be attached to an android phone in order to get the infrared picture. Has anyone tested these ? Any links to what you tested would be much appreciated
Here is one such a camera http://obtain.thermal.com/product-p/uw-aaa.htm
