Window Mold Inspection
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
(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.
