Hidden Ceiling and Wall Mold

Dear George,

How do you detect mold? Can you detect mold in the ceiling and walls?
I think that’s where my mold is.

Dear Apartment Dweller,

Mold has a conspicuous, and somewhat unsettling pattern on surfaces, but I believe you are referring to unseen mold.

Bye Bye Mold™ uses a thermal imager, which can detect variances in infrared energy emitted by substances. Because wet materials typically emit a different amount of infrared energy than dry materials, areas where there is moisture intrusion (or a water leak) display a recognizable pattern and distinguishable ranges of temperatures. 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 and ceiling 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.

To set a timely appointment for a mold inspection, you can contact Bye Bye Mold™ 24/7 at 1.800.686.1992 or via e-mail with our user-friendly contact form.
