Mold & Mildew Causation Experts

The investigation of mold and water intrusion claims follows a protocol similar to fire investigations.  Cissell Investigative Engineering LLC (CIE) examines the patterns, whether it is water stains, moisture readings, humidity, efflorescence, mold patterns, mold colony size or decay.  The purpose is to determine the origin which in turn help limit the potential sources of moisture.  Failure to identify the source of the moisture will lead to continued problems with mold contamination.  We are often called to a claim where a problem occurs for the second time.

CIE engineers trace and interpret the patterns to determine potential causes.  Non-destructive testing and thermal imaging allow our engineers to quickly assess the origin of the problem.  Common causes:

  • HVAC
  • Poor Ventilation
  • Insulation problems
  • Plumbing failures
  • Appliance failure
  • Roofing, window and flashing problems
  • Construction defects
  •  Soil Moisture, Downspouts, groundwater
