Mold in My House! Installment 5

Updated: Jan 29, 2019

WHAT IF I SUSPECT I HAVE HIDDEN MOLD?

You may suspect hidden mold if a building smells moldy, but you cannot see the source, or you know there has been water damage and you or others are experiencing health problems. Mold may be hidden in places like the back side of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, the top side of ceilings, the underside of carpets and pads, etc. Other possible locations include areas inside walls around pipes (with leaking pipes as shown in the photo), the surface of walls behind furniture (where condensation forms), inside duct-work, and in roof materials above ceilings (due to roof leaks or insufficient insulation).

INVESTIGATING SUSPECTED HIDDEN MOLD Investigating hidden mold problems may be difficult and will require caution when the investigation involves disturbing potential sites of mold growth. For example, removal of wallpaper can lead to a massive release of spores if there is mold growing on the underside of the paper. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU MAY HAVE A HIDDEN MOLD PROBLEM, CONSIDER HIRING AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL.
