Our goal is to give property owners a full-scale picture of any damage, infestations, or other common issues. In order to achieve this goal, we offer detailed mold testing and thermal imaging inspections. When you're ready to see your property inside and out, give us a call.
Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, it can even cause health problems. That's why we offer a comprehensive mold test. With this service, we investigate your property for any signs of water intrusion, a common cause of mold growth. For an additional fee, we'll also take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.
Mold Inspection Specialists
Our mold assessors are licensed and insured to test for mold and perform IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) tests. Some states do not require licensing, but we make sure that everyone we hire has a license. Our Inspectors were trained by NORMI (National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors) and remain active members to this day.
Additionally, we hold an Active State of Florida Mold Assessors and Mold Remediators License and have performed hundreds of mold tests in order to include remediation among our qualifications. However, once a mold test is completed, a separate assessor must perform the remediation in order to avoid a conflict of interest.
With this service, we use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren't always apparent to the naked eye. IR cameras translate the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors.
By evaluating these images, we can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems. An IR inspection can detect a variety of common issues, including wood-destroying infestations and flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
