BOTHELL INSPECTION REPORT:
REASON FOR MOLD INSPECTION:
- Client was recently removing flooring in newly purchased home and they uncovered some discolored subfloor. Environix hired to inspect the flooring for mold growth and elevated moisture.
- Relative humidity levels are normal. Generally, indoor RH levels should remain under 55% or under 50% in homes with poorly insulated exterior walls.
- CO2 levels are normal. While not a direct health problem, elevated CO2 levels are an indication of stale indoor air and poor ventilation. This can lead to a buildup of pollutants and humidity, which can cause mold growth.
- Home is inadequately heated. A minimum indoor temp of 65ºF must be maintained to minimize excessive humidity and mold growth.
