Thermal and Moisture Imaging are quite often the only way to understand why fresh paint, caulking, and texture has been applied to a specific area. This technology has been used for decades and in recent years applied to residential home inspections. These tools are always present and utilized if needed at no additional charge on every home inspection. Most commonly it is used to find moisture intrusion that can cause mold and mildew, though there is an additional fee for a full-scale mold test. They can be extremely costly to remove, so if you or your home inspector thinks that mold is present, it’s best to get some testing done.
