Mold Testing & Moisture Detection

Detecting the presence of mold, in part, means detecting the presence of moisture. Moisture in building materials feeds mold and encourages it to colonize, so ultimately, your mold problem is a result of and goes in tandem with your moisture problem.

Knowing what’s causing mold is a key part of getting rid of it. If a mold colony has grown in your home or business, it’s important to have that mold tested, too — there are many different kinds of mold that grow on the welcoming materials we use in buildings (like cellulose-rich wood and drywall), and some are more dangerous than others. You’ll want to know if you’re dealing with Stachybotrys chartarum, a toxic black mold, so that you — and Choice Property Restoration — can properly respond to its presence.

We use state-of-the-art moisture detection tools that give us a clear indication of the issue we’re dealing with, and how to clear up that issue. Our technicians are also trained to test for mold and to work with it safely.

We Use The Industry’s Best Tools

Among the tools we use to find your moisture problems and rid your space of mold:

Thermal imaging cameras
These can find moisture even behind walls, by showing us a difference in temperature between wet and dry building materials.

Digital hygrometers
These test the level of humidity in the air, which both alerts us to potential humidity issues that could be contributing to mold growth and allows us to create the right conditions for proper drying.

Pin-less moisture meters and pin-type moisture meters
Using moisture meters, we can accurately determine the presence and level of moisture in wood.

Hydro sensors
These can also detect hidden moisture behind walls.

How Do I Know If I Have Mold?

The best way to get a truly accurate sense of your potential mold problem and what kind of mold you’re dealing with is to have a professional inspect your problem areas. But there are a few indicators that may give you an indication that it’s time to call Choice Property Restoration.

You see it
Most of us know at least vaguely what mold looks like — if you see dark, blotchy spots on your drywall, trim or furnishings, there’s a good chance it’s some kind of mold.

You smell it
Mold has a strong, musty smell with which most of us are familiar — almost like pungent dirt.

You feel it
We don’t mean you’ll feel the mold, but you’ll feel conditions that are conducive to mold growth. Mold thrives in moisture, so if it’s excessively humid inside and measures aren’t taken to correct that (air conditioning, dehumidifiers), you may be creating a haven for mold.
