IDS utilizes the latest environmental equipment for the most advanced inspection, testing, detection and analysis of contaminants in indoor air environments.
We offer a wide variety of investigative services, ranging from infrared investigations to microbial sampling. Finding are analyzed and documented with confidential, comprehensive reporting techniques. IDS offers the following: Infrared Thermography, Moisture Meter, Bio Reveal Microbial Detection SystemSure II, and Microbial sampling. IDS provides an accurate scope of work, timeline and budget to decontaminate facilities. The IDS system is the most efficient and effective decontamination process in the industry.
Infrared Thermography is the only proven, non-destructive and complete method for identifying and troubleshooting moisture problems and energy loss. Infrared investigations pinpoint moisture intrusion, moisture retention, missing, damaged or wet insulation, leaking air ducts and water piping, all of which can lead to mold infestation. Infrared can also identify insect infestations and electrical problems that are not visible to the naked eye.
Elevated moisture content and/or relative humidity is needed to support microbial growth and amplification. Repairing the source(s) of elevated moisture is critical in preventing and remediating mold growth. Moisture meters are used in conjunction with the infrared cameras to determine extent of water damage and moisture content in building materials. Visual inspections and interviews (when possible) are conducted as part of the investigation to get a history of the building and determine if there is more than one source of water intrusion.
