Can you detect if there is black mold present behind the walls?

Dear George,

Is there a way to have a house inspected to detect if there is black mold possibly present on the inside of walls?

Dear Growing Mold,

Yes, the use of the latest in available technologies can help identify what lies inside walls.

Bye Bye Mold™ uses a thermal imaging camera, which can detect variances in infrared energy emitted by substances. Because areas of moisture intrusion typically emit less infrared energy, they will display as darker than surrounding areas. Thermal imaging provides immediate non-invasive evidence of moist conditions to help locate sources of water intrusion.

Bye Bye Mold™ can also sample the air in wall cavities by the insertion of an air tube through a 1/4th inch hole through drywall. Laboratory analysis of the sample will reveal mold spore counts of the inner-wall air.
