We'll Conduct a Walk-Thru of Your Home and Visual Inspection
What you think are allergies might actually be mold in your home. To find out for sure, we'll walk through your home with an infrared camera and search for any active mold or moisture issues. The way we detect mold or moisture with an infrared camera is that moisture holds a lower temperature. If our camera picks up a location that we think might be exposed to higher levels of moisture, we can use a moisture meter to be sure. We'll also do a walk-thru of your home without the infrared camera to look for more obvious signs.
Where Does Mold Usually Grow?
Mold tends to grow, but it is especially good at growing in closets. This is especially true when there a lot of purses and shoes in the closet. Leather attracts mold like crazy because it is an organic material. Once the relative humidity goes up in a closet, it generally stays there because the door is usually closed, and there is no air circulation.
Also, mold grows very well under kitchen and bathroom fixtures, especially if there is a leakage underneath the sinks or bath.
If you have a wooden-framed bed, wooden fixtures, or anything else wooden, you are more susceptible to mold. Why? Over time, these wooden materials create dust, and dust is an organic material that is a food source for mold. Mold needs three things to grow - a surface, a food source, and moisture - and dust is the perfect food source for mold!
We Use a State-of-the-Art Air Quality Test
Last but not least, Boone's Restoration Technologies uses a sophisticated laboratory air quality test following the completion of a thorough inspection. This test will allow us to capture the air in your home and see what kind of mold spores are in the air and the quantity. We'll take an outdoor control sample, which is a base control to have an evaluation of our indoor air quality sample vs. the outdoor air. This will let us know if the interior mold levels are elevated or not.
