Have your property checked for mold and other contaminants with the help of Holt Analytical. Our agency is dedicated to producing honest and thorough inspection result reports and providing excellent customer service.
Pre and Post-Remediation Testing
An initial mold inspection is necessary to evaluate the extent of the remediation needed. Then, a clearance examination is performed after the rehabilitation process to measure its success. This post-restoration testing consists of the following:
Infrared Thermography for Water Intrusion Detection and More
This imaging technology utilizes cameras that detect heat radiation and produce photos. Since all objects emit infrared radiation based on their temperatures, it is possible to identify the presence of moisture in the dark using thermography.
Infrared thermography is one of the latest technological advances in the construction industry. It helps us understand what is inside your walls without causing damage. Using this device, we can diagnose potential moisture and insulation-related issues.
This visual examination of your property's interior and exterior helps detect mold and mold-inducing conditions. It includes performing moisture readings on construction materials, such as:
Holt Analytical uses industry-specific state-of-the-art electronic equipment to detect excessive moisture in construction materials. This is because moisture may be the primary cause of indoor mold problems.
Collecting samples for laboratory analysis helps specify the mold type present on surfaces and in the air. Identification and quantification produce invaluable data in determining the potential health risks and deciding the proper remediation solutions.
The Collection Process
Surface samples are taken directly from approximately one square inch of a surface. Meanwhile, air samples are a representation of mold spores in the environment. They are based on the actual number of spores captured in a canister called a spore trap.
In addition, obtaining samples for an EPA Relative Moldiness Index (ERMI) involves analyzing dust to capture the ERMI specimen.
Holt Analytical conducts allergen screenings by collecting samples of particles in a structure and performing a lab analysis. Then, we will provide an in-depth interpretation of the results about the presence of contaminants above acceptable limits.
Common Biological Contaminants
Mold is not the only biological contaminant that can be inhaled and cause adverse health reactions. Other indoor air pollutants include:
