Don’t worry. Attics are a perfect example of how infrared cameras can be used to detect mold...even in inaccessible or hard-to-reach spaces. Basically, infrared cameras measure thermal energy (heat) given off by different objects.
Since mold is a living organism and all living things emit heat, an infrared inspection can easily let you know whether or not you have a mold problem. It will also reveal any water damage or moisture intrusion in your attic.
What’s more, infrared inspections are non-contact, saving you time and money because you don't have to cut holes in your walls in order to check behind them for mold.
Mold is a fungus, and like any fungus, it loves wet environments. From mushrooms and yeasts to black mold, you can expect to find fungi growing anywhere that provides moisture, warm temperatures and nutrition. Excellent hosts for mold include wood, drywall and carpets because these materials are rich in cellulose, the ideal food for mold.
Unfortunately, these materials make up a large part of our homes and workplaces, putting us at risk of mold exposure if they ever become wet. The general guideline is to dry wet materials within 24 to 48 hours. Any longer, and you risk the development of mold.
Note: Even materials that look dry can be wet or damp below the surface. This is why moisture meters are a great tool to have when inspecting a home for mold. These handheld devices will tell you how wet a material is; for example, the moisture content of wood should never exceed 16 percent.
