NY Mold Inspections Welcomes Thermography Into Its Fold
30th April, 2012, New York City, New York – NY Mold Inspections is proud to announce its newly improved mold elimination protocols that incorporate thermography as the de facto method for analysis. The use of thermography is gaining in its popularity as it is a highly noninvasive method of analyzing hard surfaces that are otherwise inaccessible. The backs of drywall, sheetrock, carpeting, wall paper and wood paneling are sometimes so hard to reach that a mold investigation specialist might be forced to make a hole in the wall in order to reach and study it. But ever since the advent of this technology, it has become possible to provide accurate mold detection by simply comparing thermographic images of suspected areas of mold infestation to those that are not infected by mold. This is perhaps the most important addition to mold inspection that has come along in years.
According to a spokesperson for NY Mold Inspections, thermography is only considered an enhancement to visual findings. The theory of thermography is based on creating an image by using differences in temperature in going across the surface; it is understandable as to how this technology enhances a mold remediation expert’s ability to correctly diagnose specific areas of mold infestation. There are many pieces of information that a thermographic analysis can yield. These images are only analyzed by a trained technician as they can be misleading when read. By detecting thermal anomalies in the temperatures of a surface, a unique picture is generated that can be analyzed to detect a possible mold infestation. Importantly, mold remediation experts use thermography in conjunction with infrared imaging technology to corroborate any findings. It is the policy of NY Mold Inspections never to use one technology alone in determining the extent of mold infestation. This essentially ensures that several methods of analysis yield the same result.
With over 20 years combined experience in this field, the company has managed to become a household name in the mold remediation landscape. The spokesperson goes on to elaborate that the addition of thermography to the mold remediation protocol saves a tremendous amount of time in the whole process of mold removal. All other methodologies involve making holes in hard surfaces and using borescopes to get a visual image of possible mold infestations.
