TEST FOR MOISTURE
Moisture Testing by Inspired Indoor Air
All mold begins with a moisture problem, whether it’s a leak, a flooded toilet, too-high indoor humidity levels or water seeping into your basement from an extra heavy rain. We offer a variety of moisture testing so that we don’t miss a single source of dampness in your home, and we offer solutions so that you can be confident that your home is safe for your family’s health again. Remember, moisture is the problem, and mold is the result.
How Moisture Testing Can Protect You
Mold and moisture damage cost American homeowners an average of $2.5 billion a year.
Left unchecked, excess moisture in your home:
- Causes illnesses like asthma, migraines, bronchitis or even pneumonia
- Damages walls, flooring, and cabinets
- Shortens the lifespan of roofs, decks, and siding

OnGuard’s 199-Point Inspection:
Mold and moisture problems can grow over time, hidden behind walls and inside porous basement walls. As an authorized dealer for OnGuard, Inspired Indoor Air goes beyond a standard home inspection to find issues that can turn into much bigger problems for your home later on. We provide the OnGuard 199-Point Inspection to thoroughly uncover any unpleasant surprises your home may have for you. If we miss anything in our inspection, you are guaranteed for up to $100,000 to repair, replace, or remediate your mold or moisture problem. Also, this guarantee is transferable to another homeowner if you should sell your house, providing great peace of mind when negotiating a home sale.
Steve’s background in engineering means that he loves detailed plans. Moisture mapping helps him identify the source of moisture so that he can understand how to fix your moisture problem at its origin. Simply remedying your mold problem isn’t enough. Steve and his team strive to find and fix the original moisture problem to prevent any future mold issues. With a moisture map in hand, he can confidently assess your home’s issues and repair the damage caused by mold and dampness.
Because moisture can lurk behind walls or baseboards, we use infrared cameras to see beyond a basic visual inspection. Not sure if that water spot on your ceiling is an active leak or just a stain? We provide peace of mind when we use our IR camera to get an idea of what’s happening behind your drywall. Using cutting-edge thermographic cameras take the guessing game out of moisture detection. When moisture evaporates, it will likely cool the wall, making it blue on our cameras. Combined that with temperature readings and moisture meter readings, we can see which areas in your home are more likely to develop mold or moisture problems before you can see or smell a water issue.
If you are buying a home, you may not know if the downstairs toilet was prone to overflowing, or if the new kitchen sink was a DIY job. But with infrared cameras, you can tell if water damage is new, ongoing, or the current perfect breeding ground for mold. At Inspired Indoor Air, we like to catch problems before they happen because it safeguards our customers’ homes.
In addition to needing a food source and the perfect temperature to thrive, mold growth explodes when the air’s moisture goes above 60%, and the temperature rises. Poor ventilation, excessive humidity, or even a rainy day can trigger mold colony growth. Measuring the moisture content of air helps us identify what plan of action would protect you. Dark, warm, moist areas in your home often don’t get the attention they need to prevent mold growth. Common areas with poor ventilation are:
- Laundry rooms
- Ventilation Ducts
Also, there may be places on your roof where ice or snow commonly accumulate, or where insufficient insulation allows water to seep into your home. Winter water damage can remain unnoticed until an unseasonably warm spring day induces mold colony growth under the eaves of your home or on the inside your roof. We examine all potential problems in your house because we want to do the job right the first time.
