Moisture Detection in the Triad
Moisture is the culprit when it comes to mold, which is one of the reasons we use professional moisture meters. We know that unfortunately, there is no way to completely eliminate spores and mold indoors without first controlling moisture. Mold is all around us and can grow quickly when it finds the right conditions. To prevent this from happening our team uses a moisture meter to find any spots where there might be extra water sources that could lead mold spores into your home or business as well as get rid of them immediately!
With the use of modern technology, moisture can be pinpointed in previously undetectable places. This is important for property owners who want to make sure they’re not risking their homes from corrosion or mold growth due to hidden problems with wet areas present on walls and floors; it’s also crucial when looking into remediation efforts because pinpointing these sources early will help save time and money! Modern moisture meters are great for catching problems before they grow into big hazardous incidents.
In order to control mold, you must first control moisture. Indoor humidity should be kept low, ideally below 60% to deter mold from growing. It’s also important to ensure any material in your home or business that is wet is promptly addressed as it can only take about 24-48 for mold growth to begin. This would include areas where there is condensation build-up, as that would indicate humidity levels are too high.

Detecting Mold Accurately
The presence of mold can be very difficult to detect. Surface checks for the growth often cannot identify enough moisture in your home or business, which means that hidden pockets with spores will only get worse over time if left untreated. Mold is tricky because spores often linger on various surfaces and can be resistant even after carefully cleaning and drying. This is where moisture meters are necessary for identifying moisture pockets on surfaces. Pinpointing where moisture lies is half the battle in getting rid of mold.
Where Mold Could Be Hiding
Mold is something that can grow in places you never imagine, and it’s important to know where. Mold colonies typically form when moisture gets behind walls or other surfaces, so it’s important to have an expert mold company do an inspection.
Mold can hide:
- Between walls
- Within drywall
- Under flooring and carpets
- In ceilings and roofs
- Attics and basements
