The use of Thermal Imaging can identify many defects in the early stages, enabling you to fix the problem with simple, inexpensive repairs. If left untreated, significant damage can occur, increasing cleanup and restoration costs dramatically.
Thermal Imaging can be used to safeguard existing homes and to evaluate new homes -- and best of all, it's completely affordable.
A dry building (one where the humidity level is roughly 45%) is significantly less likely to experience insect infestations. Roaches, spiders, silverfish and dust mites all thrive in damper buildings. Also, a dry building will not develop a mold problem since mold requires moisture or elevated humidity in order to grow.
The Louisiana State Legislature has passed an amendment to the New Home Warranty Act that relieves all New Home Builders from any liability for mold and mold damage. Since most insurance policies do not cover mold damage or have very low limits (far below what it costs to repair even a moderate mold problem), homeowners have no significant financial assistance to combat mold. Identifying moisture problems early and notifying the builder before the problem escalates is the best way to avoid costly repairs.
