Floor Mold Inspection Steps

Mold growth can take place on, inside, or beneath floors and floor coverings. Floor mold growth is the result of water intrusion into the floor from water wicking up through concrete floors from the ground below, flooding, roof leaks, siding leaks, window water leaks, plumbing leaks
(e.g., plumbing inside or above the walls), and high humidity above 70% some or all of the time.

Effective floor mold inspection can include these inspection steps:

(1) careful visual inspection of the entire floor surface for signs of water intrusion (e.g., water stains, water damage) and mold growth. If the floor is carpeted, it is helpful to pull back the carpeting and padding in the corners of the room to examine both the carpeting and padding for mold growth, and to do moisture meter testing of the floor beneath the carpeting and padding. If is also insightful to examine the bottoms of all wood furniture in the room for evidence of water or mold damage;

(2) if the floor is made of wood, cut out a section for visual inspection for mold growth of the backside of the cut out flooring piece, followed by fiber optics inspection cable of the interior of each floor area through the cut out inspection holes made in the floor. The cut out section (if moldy) can be sent as a "bulk sample" for mold lab analysis; and

(3) scanning the entire floor surface with a moisture meter to locate any hidden high water content areas, which will be likely places harboring hidden mold growth.
