Mold Testing Can Often and Easily be Avoided by Utah Infrared Home Inspections
Many Utah home owners and home buyers are saving the un-necessary costs of mold testing by simply having an Infrared Home Inspection. At Utah Infrared, we have all the top of the line Mold Testing Equipment and are mold testing certified by the International Association of certified Indoor Air Consultants, however, we often find ourselves being able to avoid the need for mold testing.
The Media has driven people to believe that mold is the true problem and mold inspections are the solution
Most often, Mold Testing simply identifies what we already know!
There is Mold in the residence
Sometimes "normal home inspectors" will make reference to stains or mold like substances, but that is about it because anything further would be considered beyond the scope of a "normal home inspection". Well guess what? Utah Infrared is not your "normal home inspector". We use thermal imaging cameras to provide knowledge on the cause and source of the moisture vs. leaving the client scared of the unknown.
Is Mold the problem or simply a byproduct of the problem?
The true problem is the Moisture/Water
Mold cannot exist without it. Correct moisture and you correct mold.
Moisture simply CANNOT escape the highly sensitive Thermal Imaging Cameras we Use During All Utah Home Inspections
Thermal Imaging used during a home inspection identifies any hidden moisture therefore exposing any hidden mold often eliminating a need for a costly mold test.
Thermal Imaging is your non-destructive solution to indentifying where the water is and what exactly has moisture in it. The process is quick and can map out water damage areas in a very cost-effective and non-alarming manner.
Mold Remediation is often far more expensive than it has to be.
Many times it is expensive because the true problem is not yet known.
By thermally mapping the residence, we can quickly identify the true condition and help to provide a cost effective solution.
Costs are reasonable:
Most often a full thermal scan of a home can be conducted and all moisture concerns documented in an easy to read report for under $150 dollars. The amount of savings can be substantial when you factor in being able to pinpoint the exact locations of moisture concerns WITHOUT having to cut into sheetrock or preform any intrusive inspection methods.
Moisture scans are included as part of all Utah Infrared Home Inspections.
