Hurricane/Flood Water Intrusion Leaking Pipes HVAC or other type water damage and Moisture intrusion
The problem faced by most home and property owners is that moisture behind walls, over ceilings, and under floors is often impossible to detect until the problem is excessive and visible to the naked eye. Since the investigation and removal of infestations of not yet visible mold in structures is often difficult, technology is now being used to do what once was impossible. Locate and pinpoint hidden water intrusion and leaks with non-destructive thermal technology. Immediate documentation of water damaged structures, plumbing and building envelope damaged structures, plumbing and building envelope damaged structures, plumbing and building envelope.
Water leakage, post -flood and energy use inefficiency. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no practical way to eliminate mold spores in an indoor environment. The best way to control mold growth is to control moisture. Mold can begin growth in as little as 24 hours. Roof leaks and water pipe leaks are common sources of water accumulation that may cause mold growth. A mold problem is a moisture problem, so when thermal technology is used to find moisture, and it actually finds moisture, it becomes possible to prevent mold and rot from taking hold or to remove the mold that actually grows.
The thermal image (left) clearly shows a leaking bedroom ceiling (visible, right). The leak was assumed by the owner to originate in an upstairs marble-paneled bathroom in the $3 million home. The estimated cost to rip out and replace the marble to access the plumbing was estimated at $80,000! Further IR investigation absolved the bathroom and traced the source of the leak to a clogged weep hole under the threshold of a door leading to an upstairs porch.

Can Mold Cause Health Problems?
Mold has the potential to cause health problems to anyone however everyone is affected differently when they come in contact with mold. The mold that may cause sever illness in one person may leave someone else living in the same environment completely un affected. Some Molds can produce allergens, irritants and in some cases, potentially toxic chemicals known as Mycotoxins. People who are sensitive and exposed to mycotoxins can become ill. Allergic reactions to mold is common. They can be immediate or delayed. People diagnosed with allergies and asthma may be very sensitive to mold. Mold can cause asthma attacks.
Who is the Most Affected by Mold?
Virtually anyone can be affected, however small children, babies, pregnant women, the elderly and anyone with a compromised immune system, or individuals with existing respiratory conditions are especially at risk.
How Can someone be Exposed to Mold?
There are only a few ways that someone can be exposed to mold.
1. Breathing the spores from the air.
2. Skin contact from handling an item that has mold growing on it.
3. Eating without properly washing your hands after handling moldy objects.
Is Mold Really As Dangerous as it Sounds?
The answer is YES in certain circumstances it can be very harmful. You should take this threat seriously.
If I can’t see any mold does that mean I don’t have a mold problem?
Did you know that the National Association of Industrial Hygienist estimate that more than half of building microbial problems are not visible. You may suspect hidden mold if a building smells moldy, but you cannot see the source, or if you know there has been water damage and residents are reporting health problems. Mold may be hidden in places such as the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top side of ceiling tiles, the underside of carpets and pads, etc. Other possible locations of hidden mold include areas inside walls around pipes (with leaking or condensing pipes), the surface of walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), inside ductwork, and HVAC units, in roof materials above ceiling tiles (due to roof leaks or insufficient insulation).
Indoor Air Quality Testing:
The purpose of an indoor air quality testing is to determine the type and amount of airborne contamination in a building. Air sampling may be necessary if the presence of mold allergens or toxic mold is suspected but cannot be identified visually. When mold air testing is performed, both the indoor and outdoor air are sampled, so the results can be compared to see if a problem exists. Typically, the indoor sample is taken while the heating and/or air conditioning unit is operating. This will ensure the interior air is effectively tested. A certified mold inspector, trained in appropriate sampling methodology, shall perform all necessary air monitoring. Air monitoring is essential if there is evidence from a visual inspection that the ventilation systems may be contaminated or if the building inhabitants are suffering from health problems which are or may be associated with fungal exposure. The purpose of such air monitoring is to assess the extent of contamination throughout the building.
