The "M" Word... - 05/20/10 07:29 AM
This is great information about mold. Yes, sometimes mold can be a monster, but it most cases it's just a mouse. Far to many people run when they hear the word "mold". The monster is the moisture problem. If you can easily kill the monster than the mold shouldn't kill the deal.
Via Michael Thornton - Nashville, TN area Home Inspector (Complete Home Inspections, Inc.): The "M" Word... Mold. A four letter word that is the "kiss of death" to most property transactions. And why not? With all the negative publicity and horror stories on the Internet, buyers head for the (3 comments)

Infrared Home Inspection Uncovers Defective Windows (pics included) - 05/11/10 07:15 AM
Infrared Home Inspections continue to prove their value over and over again. During an inspection this weekend my infrared camera detected a very minimal amout of moisture around and below several of the window casings. I proceeded to check for the percentage of moisture with my moisture meters, I wasn't able to get any moisture readings around several of the windows with the use of my pin or pinless moisture meters. The majority of moisture meters that home inspectors use only detect moisture aprox. 1/4-3/8 of an inch below the service. Often times moisture and mold can be much deeper than 1/4"-3/8". Without infrared technology, the moisture and molding that was (10 comments)
