WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT MOLD
Mold can begin to develop in as little as 24-48 hours with contact to a variety of construction materials when a building has a water intrusion event such as flooding, pipe bursts, or long term vapor and condensation build up. Mold can be found growing on wood products, duct work, paper, carpet, foods, and virtually any surface where moisture is provided. While eliminating mold and mold spores possible, it is also hard to achieve. The control of moisture in the facility can prevent mold growth much more successfully and inspections can catch these issues during early onset.
RAPID RESPONSE IS THE KEY TO PREVENTION
Our mold and moisture consultants will quickly report to your location where mold is a concern and provide informed recommendations for action. With the use of guidelines, testing, and inspections, we can tackle the threat of mold growth before the need rises for large scale demolition, all while helping save you money. Based on observations and visual indicators, EHI will provide the right choices for consultation and remediation to serve your best interests.
HOW CAN WE ACCESS YOUR MOLD PROBLEM
With the use of air and surface sampling, thermal imaging, temperature and humidity readers, and moisture meters, EHI can provide high-end analysis of building weak points that allow condensation and organic matter to mix (the perfect home for spores to thrive). Mold can be evaluated in the following areas:
- In air
- Inside HVAC systems
- Inside wall cavities
- On surfaces
- On carpets
We also have the ability to visually search in cavities without destructive demolition, to test surfaces for moisture content and to assess ultra small particle concentrations. Other microbes can also be sampled including bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes and other pathogens.
