Infrared Cameras for Mold Inspectors

While we have added Moisture Meter technology to our kit, some Mold inspectors have added Infrared camera technology to theirs and it too is producing excellent results. In a nutshell my understanding is: infrared cameras highlight cool areas, and cool areas might be damp. Moisture meters are better at detecting moisture but it would take a long time to sweep over every foot of a house’s walls, floors and ceilings. These suspect cooler areas found with an Infrared camera are then checked with a moisture meter to determine if water moisture is causing the coolness. Just because an area of a wall or whatever is cool does not mean that it is damp, air circulation can also make 1 area cooler than others, such as by an Air Conditioner or Foundation vent. We recommend only using Mold Inspectors that use Infrared cameras as a part of their inspection accordingly. If you would like a referral to Mold Inspectors whom we know to use infrared cameras see our referral page or call our office.

Miracle Grow offers free Gardening advice and problem solving on their web site and via an email newsletter. I find both to be very helpful, their emails are tailored to your location and tell you when it’s a good time to do certain things such as spraying Dormant Oil on your Roses and such. If you don’t know what Dormant oil is you can find that out there too. You have to register to get the email, but don’t worry, this does not appear to have resulted in any unwanted emails.
