BROOKLYN, NY, May 13, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Manhattan Mold Inspections, a premier mold investigation and remediation company, announces its brand-new infrared thermal imaging protocol for mold detection. The theory behind the use of this technology is that imaging devices that use infrared frequencies are able to detect moisture and water on surfaces that tend to lend themselves to mold infestations. These infestations can cause highly allergenic reactions and even irreversible forms of respiratory diseases. The use of this novel technology has already proved successful with saving hours on the site doing mold investigations. The entire process of mold detection is expedited, especially in cases where mold remediation experts must address suspicious moisture in office buildings, apartment complexes and hotels. The idea is to hasten the process of mold detection so that there is no delay in beginning the mold remediation process.
Water damage can begin a mold colonization in a duration as short as 24 hours, therefore an accurate method such as infrared technology can pick up even the smallest colonies of mold which may pose a threat in the future. A spokesperson for Manhattan Mold Inspections described the portability of the camera itself which is not much larger than an average digital camera with a flashlight like handle. It carries an onboard computer and display screen that is able to produce quick imaging of moisture maps for an investigator to look at. It is later that further investigations of suspected areas are performed if moisture readings cause a concern to the mold professionals. In the event that moisture levels are found in somewhat characteristic patterns that are indicative of mold, corrective procedures would be suggested by Manhattan Mold Inspections that would be presented in the form of a comprehensive report.
The spokesperson for the company elaborated on how this kind of thermal imaging expedites the entire process of mold detection such that a mold reversal is possible in 24 hours. Most importantly, thermal imaging prevents the destruction of structures as it is a measure of the moisture and not an image of the mold itself. Sometimes invasive and destructive methodologies cause more harm than good especially as they disturb mold spores. With folks in the New York City tri-state area reporting increasingly growing allergies, this new technology could not have come at a better time.
