Identify the problem and find the cause.
First, we pinpoint the problem areas in your building. Where is the mold growth? Crawlspace, attic, or hidden in a bathroom wall? All of these are common locations for mold growth. Throughout the mold inspection sophisticated sensory equipment is used to locate probable areas of growth.
Second, we determine the cause of the mold growth. Mold requires water to grow, therefore we look for a source of excessive moisture. Common sources include:
