What does a mold inspector do?
Mold inspectors help you determine if you may or may not have a mold problem.
We offer two types of mold inspections; each have a need to resolve your concerns.
One is to just visually inspect and the other is to test by means of taking samples and submitting to a lab to determine results of the type of mold you may or may not have.
A professional mold inspection includes not only sampling, but a comprehensive visual inspection to detect issues and problems related to mold that are not apparent to most people without training in building sciences and mold inspections. Mold is everywhere. Yes, all homes have small amounts of mold.
We do a visual inspection by eye, smell, taking
moisture reading of suspected areas and even use a Infa red camera to help find
hidden water damage you or us could not see.
First is the Limited Mold Inspection.
Mold inspection is, for the most part, is a visual inspection of a house, it does not involve any lad testing. A typical mold inspection involves the inspector talking to the property owner about any areas where they have seen mold, or where there have been moisture problems or water damage in the past or understand way they want or need an inspection. sometimes it’s done because of allergy problems or a musty odor they are experiencing. We test for high humidity and moisture.
Second should be a mold testing if your inspector determines a need for it by the visual inspection first.
What does a mold test do?
Broadly speaking, most mold testing involves
taking a sample of either the air or a surface. Essentially, a mold inspector
"tests" the air or surface to find out what kind of mold exists
and/or if the suspected mold found is actually mold and could able
to grow in the area tested, by moisture reading we take.
What is Thermal imaging camera used for and how do the work?
Thermal imaging is a method of improving visibility of
objects in a dark environment by detecting the objects' infrared radiation
and creating an image based on that information. Thermal imaging,
near-infrared illumination, low-light imaging and
are the three most commonly used night vision technologies.
Its not always going to find things we want, but it does have a purpose.
Moisture meters are used to determine the amount of moisture within grain
presented for sale, a critical assessment of quality that affects the value and
storability of the grain
We also use moisture testing equipment to determine the moisture of the environment and test the structure for hidden moisture. The two that is used is our moisture reader to check surfaces and humidity and the Thermal Image equipment.
