Remembering that our tasks are to Inspect, Clean, Dry and Ventilate, obviously our first task when being called out for a mould treatment at a Melbourne property is to inspect, determine and identify any signs of mould growth and determine the cause. We can achieve this in a number of ways. Obviously the first and best way of determining the presence of mould is by a visual inspection of both the building itself and the roof cavity and crawl space. In addition to a visual inspection we can utilise both our infrared thermal imaging cameras (which can locate heat and cool spots invisible to the eye) and our inspection cameras.
Our cameras can inspect areas of interest like HVAC central heating systems where mould is likely to take a hold due to the warmth and often moist atmosphere.
Often mould can be located by following the moisture trail, which itself can be identified with the use of moisture and humidity meters (right). Moisture detectors lead us to the most common source of mould growth - moisture. Humidity meters provide evidence of elevated humidity readings, a certain sign of positive mould growth conditions, generally due to a lack of ventilation or moisture intrusion. The inspection will also cover testing for excessive mould spores using our particle samplers (pictured below).

Inspecting for the presence of moisture and from there, mould - whether the presence of moisture has already been established or suspected or whether its presence is unclear - involves the marrying of experience and training with sophisticated and powerful equipment. We invest thousands of dollars in the correct equipment to thoroughly analyse any property and locate any moisture that may be present.
These instruments can both detect and measure moisture in carpet, plaster walls, sold walls, concrete slabs, brickwork and the internal atmosphere. Mouldco have a complete range of moisture metres allowing us to offer the most comprehensive mould inspection service in Melbourne.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection camera
(Pictured below) Infrared inspection cameras measure the difference in temperature on any given surface. Therefore, potential damp patches can be identified, even if they cannot be visually inspected or measured with a traditional moisture metre which relies on touch to gain a measurement.
(Pictured below) Our camera based inspection cameras can detect or search for moisture in ductwork, behind wall cavities and in other visually inaccessible areas.
MOULD SPORE ANALYSERS
(Pictured below) Our mobile particle samplers can identify elevated airborne particles/mould spores and we use them to provide before and after readings of areas that are cleaned by Mouldco.
