Displayed in the attached picture is a leaking shower. In this instance the silicone has been removed or deteriorated from the floor and wall junction causing water ingress into the wall cavity. Ideally a waterproof membrane should stop the water from reaching the wall frame work. Not always the case.
Top 3 issues with a leaking shower are:
Timber rot to the wall frame (bottom plate and studs)
Attractant for termite infestation
Cracking to the tiles, due to tile glue deterioration
The picture on left shows the poorly sealed junction and the picture on the right is a moisture meter. The moisture meter is a tool used that transmits electrodes through the desired material and indicates on a analog needle the moisture content within.
Fortunately this defect was found and appropriate action is now being carried to prevent further damages

“Dave was great, very informative, easy to talk too and ensured I seen the issues I needed sorted before putting house on the market. Was worth every dollar as the money spent on my issues I feel will ensure a smooth sale.
“I had David do a preventative maintenance inspection on our butcher shop at the Gawler Green. It was a very valuable inspection as we found a leak coming from the tenancy next door. David's thermal imaging and moisture testing was used to find the problem . It was easily fixed before it became a big and expensive repair . His service was professional and great , I'll be using his maintenance inspections regularly.”
