ISE is a Certified Mold Inspection firm highly qualified to investigate all types of mold losses.
Cause of Mold Investigations Quickly and quietly, mold forms, grows, and destroys furniture, appliances, walls, house framing, and everything else in its path. By conducting a complete site assessment, we can determine if the owner, a contractor, or perhaps the maker of faulty materials is responsible for many types of mold losses.
We use infrared imaging and sophisticated moisture detection equipment to see if burst pipes, ground water, faulty construction, ice dams, improper insulation, or anything else is the cause of mold growth.
With spring comes evidence of mold growth in attics and hidden areas caused by inadequate insulation and ice dams over the gutters. The mold spreads quickly and can build up inside walls to produce damage like this. Other sources of mold can include leaking pipes to groundwater or even a malfunctioning furnace's humidifier.
If mold formation is extensive, we can provide an industrial hygienist or laboratory support personnel to identify strain of mold, timeline of growth, and degree of health hazard. Many of our mold losses throughout New England are handled by Kevin Davis, P.E., a licensed Professional Engineer and a certified mold inspector.
Building Contractor Assessment ISE has licensed contractors from various trades in the event that an opinion on standard practice in the trades is needed. Issues such as workmanship, code compliance, and building materials can be more fully understood by combining engineering principals with trade practices in the final evaluation. In this case, we worked with a Building Contractor to determine the cause of problems with hardwood flooring.
