Ceiling Mold Inspection Steps

If there are roof leaks in a building, water is going to flow downward by gravity to wet the insides of the attic, ceilings, and walls below, and thus cause massive hidden mold infestation, such as pictured in the deadly Stachybotrys ceiling mold shown on the picture on the right side of this page.

If a building has roof leaks, the attic needs to be very carefully inspected with a strong flashlight to inspect for water stains, water damage, and mold growth.  The insulation on the floor of the attic needs to be removed one section at a time to inspect the top, sides, and bottom of each insulation batt for possible mold growth. A batt is a piece of fiberglass used to insulate buildings.

When the batts are removed a few at a time, the wood flooring beneath the batts can also be inspected for water stains, water damage, and mold growth.  Mold-free batts can be re-installed if there is no water damage and no mold growth beneath the batt.

To inspect the insides of drywall ceilings, you can but one inch by one inch inspection holes in the room side of the ceiling and then insert a fiber optics inspection tube (one meter long) to look for water damage and mold growth above the ceiling.  Also, please examine the piece of drywall removed for each inspection hole for mold growth inside each cut out drywall piece and on its bottom (attic side).

If the ceiling is a suspended ceiling, remove all ceiling tiles to examine their top side for mold growth and to look for mold growth in areas above the suspended ceiling. You can then re-install ceiling tiles that are mold-free if there is no mold growth above the suspended ceiling.
