A mold intrusion can cause serious health problems for building occupants, particularly those with weakened or compromised immune systems.  Also, completing a real estate transaction can be difficult if mold growth is found on an appraisal or home inspection.  A mold inspection from 1-800 Water Damage can help diffuse common "mold myths", provide necessary data and photos for interested parties to understand the extent of the problem, and also provide options for proper removal.

OBSERVATIONS

General Information

  • The home owner is concerned about persistent mold growth in the Master Bathroom.

Furnace / HVAC

  • Homes must have special care taken to ensure appropriate ventilation, and prevent the buildup of humidity and other pollutants.
  • Current standards recommend 0.35 to 0.7 air changes per hour, this may be attained by installation of a ducted heat recovery ventilator or upgrading mechanical exhaust ventilation to function on a continuous flow (the recommended units for this method is a Panasonic Whisper Green exhaust fan).
  • The estimated square footage of this home is 3,100 sq.ft.
  • The necessary flow rate to establish 0.35-0.7 ACH for this home is 144-288CFM.

     Recommendations

  • Installation of constant-flow exhaust fans or an HRV/fresh-air intake to achieve the recommended ventilation levels listed above will decrease relative humidity and improve indoor air quality.

 

Master Bathroom:

  • No exhaust fan installed in this area.
  • Moderate surface mold growth noted in several areas around the bathroom.
  • No increased moisture content noted in tested building materials.
  • No suspicious temperature differentials noted on inspection with FLIR.
  • No obvious signs of water damage.
  • RH: 50.1%     Temp: 74.9F     CO2 = 698ppm     CO = 0ppm

     Recommendations

  • The exhaust ventilation in this area is inadequate, it is recommended that a Panasonic Whisper Green 80CFM exhaust fan be installed and set to run at 30CFM continuous flow, and for 60 minutes at 80CFM once motion-sensor has been activated.
  • Moderate surface growth was noted in this area, at this time the there is no reason to suspect that the underlying building materials have been affected.  Professional remediation is not necessary and the client may clean the area with standard surfactants and/or EPA-registered anti-microbial agents.  Once the area is cleaned it may be painted or repaired as needed.  Removal of wall paper may be necessary to address all areas of mold growth.
