The roof, flashings, gutters, downspouts, chimneys, siding, doors and windows are all examined to identify problem areas that allow water intrusion to occur. When inspecting the living spaces of the home moisture meters, infrared cameras, and particle counters are used to identify areas where water intrusion has occurred and microbial growth maybe occurring. A written report that includes pictures, findings and recommendations are emailed to the homeowner following the inspection.

If visible mold is not present, an air sample can help determine the probability of microbial growth occurring in the home.
