As part of its expanded service, the team conducts thorough mold inspections utilizing advanced methods that include indoor air quality testing and moisture testing for building materials such as concrete, flooring, and insulation. In addition, the mold specialists employ thermal imaging to detect temperature changes indicative of mold presence or potential growth.

As DocAir notes, mold can thrive virtually anywhere, and homes and business facilities make no exception, as its spores need only a warm temperature, lots of moisture, and organic materials such as wood and drywall, to propagate. Controlling moisture is the most effective way to prevent mold from taking hold.

Depending on a property’s condition, the team achieves this with interventions such as dehumidification to remove excess moisture from the air and inhibit mold spore activity. DocAir also takes measures to mitigate vapor, building barriers and applying waterproof coatings to prevent moisture intrusion.

To prevent mold growth under a property, DocAir offers crawl space encapsulation. Between the ground and a building’s floor, crawl spaces tend to invite damp, pests, and mold including black mold (Stachybotrys) – regarded as the most toxic type. The mold removal experts engage in repair, sealing, and waterproofing together with remote-reading hygrometer installation to convert crawl spaces into moisture-controlled areas.

DocAir’s other areas of expertise span duct fan and blower door testing to measure a building’s airtightness, as well as radon mitigation – the process of reducing concentrations of the radioactive gas that can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer. HVAC servicing, design, and installation for a variety of systems together with plumbing services are also provided.

A satisfied customer said: “I hired DocAir to do mold remediation in my crawl space, and then a full encapsulation including installing a humidifier. The crew was incredibly friendly and polite and accomplished a lot in a short amount of time. Within a week, I’ve seen the humidity level decrease and I’m not getting musty odors in my house like I used to.”
