Natural mold and fungus
Molds exist naturally all around us. Molds and fungus play a vital role in the decomposition of organic waste such as in a compost pile. Other molds are essential in the creation of some of our finest foods, such as wine and cheese. But, when mold growth occurs in an inappropriate place or in extreme concentration, the health of our home and family can be at risk.

Mold Nutrients
All molds need two basic ingredients to grow, food and water. The favorite food of mold is cellulose. In our home, cellulose is a common constituent. Wood, paper, cotton, and drywall are plentiful in construction and are great sources of cellulose. Water is everywhere in our homes, both on the surfaces and in the air.

As the tightness of our homes has increased in response to a desire to conserve energy, the unintended consequence has been the trapping of moisture. The increase in moisture in our homes has in some cases resulted in a relative humidity above the 60% level needed to sustain mold growth in interior spaces. In some cases, the moisture level of the interior spaces is below the mold growth threshold, but the exterior wall cavities retain the required moisture level for rapid mold and fungus growth within the walls. To make matters worse, this condition is also perfect for accelerated wood rot and termite infestation.

So what is a reasonable person to do? Much like a physical exam is the first step in a plan for personal health, a home inspection is the first step in a mold survey. The intent of the inspection is to seek out all sources of moisture that may contribute to an environment that is attractive to mold and to visually identify any existing mold colonies. Roof leaks, plumbing leaks, and improper sprinkler positioning are among the more common sources of mold-causing moisture problems. After identification of the moisture source, a reasonable and practical remedy can be prescribed.

Areas with visible mold colonies can be thoroughly cleaned with detergent, followed by wiping with a bleach and water solution. Porous materials such as ceiling tiles and carpet are difficult to clean and often require removal and replacement in all but the most minor of outbreaks.

Test the mold or fungus
In most cases, testing to determine mold species is not necessary to solve the problem. If an individual has an extreme or specific health risk factor, testing may be of value in assisting the medical professional in addressing the specific health situation. If the outbreak of mold is extreme, testing maybe wise in ensuring safety during remediation. The choice to test or not should always rest with the homeowner or potential homebuyer, but the decision should be an informed one made with the assistance of an NACHI certified home inspector who has received additional training specific to mold management.

Mold and Fungus is here to stay
With a basic understanding of the management of moisture, household mold maintenance is simple. Molds have been around forever and will never be gone, and it is good that they are here. But like so many things, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Stay informed, but don't get caught up in the hype. Remember, it's about knowing!


MOLD REMOVAL & INSPECTION
A residence or business that is infested with mildew and mold growth may not necessarily emit an unpleasant musty smell usually associated with fungus and microbial growth, rot and re-growth.

Often times the source of the mold is conspicuously hidden within dry wall, ceiling tiles, carpets, wallpaper, inside walls and paneling or in and around unknown pipes that are condensed. The condition of your home on the exterior of the building is also a contributing factor in mold levels. High levels of moisture seeping through broken shingles and compromised roofing will undoubtedly spawn lush conditions for fungi and bacteria to reproduce.

Have a certified mold inspection service conduct a thorough mold control test if you believe a structure you reside in or work in is being overrun by mold and mildew growth. Allclean are mold remediation experts and are accredited to the AIHA. Allclean will professionally inspect your home or office using hidden moisture meters and fiber optic inspection tools.

Don't let mold-infested stretches of your home or office contaminate heating and cooling vents and equipment. Airborne mold spores are a major contributor to allergies, respiratory infections and bouts with fatigue

 Thermal Imaging Surveys for Buildings, Electrical and Industrial

Superior Leak Detection Inc. - Energy Loss Management - Preventative Maintenance     

Managing energy cost is becoming increasingly more important in staying competitive in a global economy. Companies today

have to face a multitude of facility issues and cannot afford the personnel or time to focus on a single media. Compressed air, gas

 leaks and municipal water company loss will for most manufacturing companies represent more than 10% of the energy  bill.

However one should be aware that it is probably also the most expensive form of energy a company uses. Only 5% of the  energy

 used to compress the air becomes usable energy. Therefore it is an area where measures taken to reduce it's use have

 an unusually high return on investment.

GENERAL OVERVIEW:

Light Basics
In order to understand thermal imaging, it is important to understand something about light. The amount of energy in a light wave is related to its wavelength: Shorter wavelengths have higher energy. Of visible light, violet has the most energy, and red has the least. Just next to the visible light spectrum is the infrared spectrum.

 

Infrared light can be split into three categories:

  1. Near-infrared (near-IR) - Closest to visible light, near-IR has wavelengths that range from 0.7 to 1.3 microns, or 700 billionths to 1,300 billionths of a meter.
     
  2. Mid-infrared (mid-IR) - Mid-IR has wavelengths ranging from 1.3 to 3 microns. Both near-IR and mid-IR are used by a variety of electronic devices, including remote controls.
     
  3. Thermal-infrared (thermal-IR) - Occupying the largest part of the infrared spectrum, thermal-IR has wavelengths ranging from 3 microns to over 30 microns.

The key difference between thermal-IR and the other two is that thermal-IR is emitted by an object instead of reflected off it. Infrared light is emitted by an object because of what is happening at the atomic level.

Thermal Imaging - Here's how it works: 
 
A special lens focuses the infrared light emitted by all of the objects in view.

The focused light is scanned by a phased array of infrared-detector elements. The detector elements create a very detailed temperature pattern called a thermogram. It only takes about one-thirtieth of a second for the detector array to obtain the temperature information to make the thermogram. This information is obtained from several thousand points in the field of view of the detector array.

The thermogram created by the detector elements is translated into electric impulses.

The impulses are sent to a signal-processing unit, a circuit board with a dedicated chip that translates the information from the elements into data for the display.

The signal-processing unit sends the information to the display, where it appears as various colors depending on the intensity of the infrared emission. The combination of all the impulses from all of the elements creates the image.

Thermography or thermal imaging, refers to the process of recording the emission or existence of thermal or infrared radiation (heat), by employing the use of a thermal imaging device or infrared camera, sometimes referred to as an "IR". Although thermal imaging can be used in the daylight, thermography allows one to "see" in the dark as it does not rely of the reflectance of light within the "visible" range of the Electromagnetic spectrum in order to record imagery. All objects at temperatures above Absolute Zero ( 0 K or -273.15 C) emit some sort of thermal radiation, many within the infrared portion of the Electromagnetic spectrum.

Thermography refers to the wavelengths within the spectrum in units of nanometers, micrometers, or microns. The commonly referred to ranges within the spectrum are gamma rays, x-rays, uv rays, visible, infrared (IR), microwave, and radio. Some objects that are very hot (such as the Sun) emit thermal radiation viewable within multiple parts of the EM spectrum such as the "visible", the "ultraviolet" (UV) and the "infrared" areas.

What is  Thermography used for?

Thermography is employed in many areas. Building diagnostics, non-destructive testing, military, maintenance, law enforcement, security, veterinary, medical, as well as astronomy are just are few of the areas where thermography is used to identify or diagnose potential problems. Thermal imaging is also used in infrared satellites to monitor the Earth's weather & vegetation patterns.

In the medical arena, thermography is actually referred to as "thermology" although "thermal imaging" is often heard (as in the term "thermal imaging lab".

The following is a list of thermal imaging terms or "therminology" that one might hear when referring to the use of thermography:

 

Ultrasonic Leak Detection & Thermal Imaging Surveys


 


One 1/4-inch leak in a compressed air system that is operating at 100 psig will lose 104 cubic feet of air per minute (cfm). A 25 horsepower air compressor is required to produce 104 cfm at an electrical energy cost of $2.20 per hour. That 1/4-inch leak if left unchecked for a year in a 24-hour facility will cost $19,272.00. We have found that it is not uncommon to find cumulative leak totals far in excess of this figure.
Our Certified Ultrasonic Compressed Air System Leak Surveyors are equipped with the tools to find, identify and quantify the compressed air leaks in your plant. Your return on investment for this service is realized in mere weeks in reduced energy costs with the added value of incorporating this service into an overall corporate energy management plan.

Compressed Air System Audits
Find out how much your compressed air system is costing to operate and how to reduce these costs. Develop strategies for managing and maintaining your compressed air system as the costly utility that it is. Arrange for a free consultation to determine the benefits of an audit in your plant.


Heat Recovery Packages
As much as 90% of the energy that goes into your air compressor is rejected as waste heat energy, either air-cooled or water-cooled, this energy can be recovered and used in process or plant heating. A 100 horsepower air compressor will reject 252,000 btu of heat energy, enough heat to warm a shipping area if you have air-cooled compressors or perhaps boiler feed water in the case of water-cooled air compressors.
