Different Types of Property Testing
These are test given to check a structure for moisture. If moisture and only moisture is detected it can be removed, replaced, or dried depending on the level of saturation.
These observations monitor the relative humidity in the air. If the relative humidity is over 50% than there is too much moisture in the air and my cause mold or mildew. Dehumidifiers are to be used to correct the problem and bring your RH back to a normal 30-50%. Dehumidifiers are also used to extract moisture from structures.
Lead and Asbestos Test:
These tests are taken by removing a minor piece or pieces determined by the size of the space of a structure to identify if the structure contains lead or asbestos.
Air Quality Test:
Testing refers to asbestos, lead, and mold/mildew(tested by spore count from exterior to interior difference). If air quality is positive for any of these toxic substances, the space must be wiped down with specific antimicrobials as well as air scrubbed with a HEPA air scrubber.
