Wall Mold Inspection Steps


Mold growth can take place INSIDE walls and on both sides of the wall (inside wall surface and outdoor side of the wall). Wall mold growth is the result of water intrusion into the wall from roof leaks, siding leaks, window water leaks or window water condensation, plumbing leaks (e.g., plumbing inside or above the walls), and high humidity above 70% some or all of the time.

If the wall has been covered by wallpaper, wall mold growth often grows hidden and unnoticed inside the wallpaper and behind the wallpaper because mold loves to eat both wallpaper and wallpaper paste or glue.

Effective wall inspection can include these inspection steps:

(1) careful visual inspection of the both wall surfaces (indoor and outdoor);

(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 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.
