Problems with humidity

You may have humidity in your home that you do not know about, and examining the mold can reveal these problems. Common areas where spores can develop include your basement, crawls, bathroom, attic and under the sinks. A dripping pipe can lead to dangerous humidity, which leads to polluted air and damaged the wood. A professional survey can identify these areas so that you can restore them before they deteriorate.

What makes a good mold inspection?

Careful form control and form control are key to preparing an effective mold removal plan. There are several methods and pieces of equipment that help the inspector in the search for mold. Today, I will clarify some of these methods and introduce widely used monitoring tools.

To investigate mold, it is necessary to investigate the moisture, so a precise determination of the location of water penetration or excessive humidity is the main priority of form control. A hygrometer is a device used to measure the humidity of the air in the environment or humidity. The hygrometer can be used to determine if the attic supports, for example, a sufficient amount of moisture in the air to stimulate the growth of mold. This information is useful for solving the source of mold growth in this attic housing, increasing airflow and ventilation. A moisture meter measures the percentage of water in a given substance, for example, gypsum board or structural timber. This may indicate the presence of moisture behind the wall of the inspector, without harming anything.

In addition to testing for moisture, mold testing is obviously carried out. The two most commonly used types of molds are injection molding tests and testing air samples. The tape casting method uses a transparent adhesive film that can collect particle particles from the surface with suspicious staining or growth. The results of these tests can classify the genus and the amount of the form in question. Air testing is probably the most useful type of mold test and is usually a form of testing used to “clean” the area after the mold removal project. Air test measures the content of particle particles in the air, invisible to the naked eye. Also, it is the air form, which is most harmful to the human respiratory system. This type of test can also be used to identify cross-contamination from the core and the clean zone.

When mold grows in a wall emptiness, but not on the surface of a wall, it is difficult to find and identify. In this situation, a borescope is useful. The borescope has a camera at the end of a long flexible area that is fed to a small screen on the device that can display a live image of the wall emptiness. This device can also take pictures and record video.

The combination of all these methods provides a good form check, and a good inspection makes a good mold removal plan.
