Example Inspection Report for Mold in Issaquah, WA

Date of Inspection: June 23rd, 2011

General Information

  • Home owner has been experiencing symptoms that the doctor had suggested may be related to indoor air quality issues

Furnace / HVAC

  • The property is heated primarily by electric wall heaters or radiant hydronic heating.
  • Homes that are not equipped with a forced air heating system 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 950 sq.ft.
  • The necessary flow rate to establish 0.35-0.7 ACH for this home is 44-88CFM.

Recommendations

  • Continuous operation of at least 1 of the bathroom exhaust fans (preferably both), combined with leaving the vents at the top of the windows open should alleviate issues with ventilation.
