Mold Inspection Steps
Mold growth can take place INSIDE
walls and on both sides of the closet walls (inside wall surface and outdoor side of
the closet wall). Closet wall mold growth is the result of water intrusion into the walls
from roof leaks, siding leaks if the closet is on the outside of the house,
high humidity above 70% some or all of the time, and poor closet ventilation
(especially if the closet door remains closed most of the time).
Effective closet wall inspection can include these inspection steps:
(1) careful visual inspection of the both wall surfaces (indoor and
outdoor), the ceiling,
and the floor;
(2) if the wall is made of drywall or paneling, cut out a section for visual
inspection for mold growth of the backside of the cut out piece, followed by
fiber optics inspection cable of the interior of each wall space through the
cut out inspection hole made in each closet wall section; and
(3) scanning the entire wall surface with a moisture meter to locate any
hidden high water content areas, which will be likely places harboring
hidden mold growth.
