Mold & Moisture
Mold & Moisture Inspecting
Excess moisture or water is the single greatest contributor to bacterial, dust mite and mold problems. Microbial amplification can lead to potential health problems as well as the destruction of building materials. In order to assess and monitor the moisture load in your building, Mold Free Maine utilizes state-of-the-art instrumentation to measure humidity levels in the air, to assess the moisture load in building materials (drywall, concrete, ceilings, wooden framing, carpet), and to identify microbial reservoirs and problem areas.
