Mold Remediation Reports from Everett

Project Type > Mold Inspection and Remediation Report for a Home in Everett

PROJECT SUMMARY

REASON FOR INSPECTION:

  • Client recently found mold growth in her daughters room and requested an inspection to determine the cause and the potential risks associated with it.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION:

  • This single family residential property was built in 1985 and is 1240 ft².

CAUSE OF MOLD:

  • Elevated relative humidity levels inside the home have contributed to condensation forming on colder surfaces (windows, walls & ceilings).

LABORATORY RESULTS

ANALYSIS OF YOUR RESULTS:

  • Moderate Amplification: Mold spores were detected at levels above the threshold, indicating a site of probable mold amplification and growth. Please refer to the attached report for more detailed information.

The most likely contributor of the elevated mold spores is:

  • Visible mold growth noted around window due to elevated levels of humidity inside the home.

Recommendations:

  • Due to the elevated levels of mold spores, the operation of a commercial HEPA air scrubber is highly recommended. This will rapidly lower the indoor mold spore levels. See included pricing.

LOCATION: Bedroom

OBSERVATIONS:

  • Light condensation-based mold growth noted on the ceiling above the window.
  • Three-dimensional condensation-based mold observed on window and window frame.

Recommendations:

  • See ventilation section above for recommendations to eliminate condensation.
  • Keep the window blinds open more often to allow air circulation to prevent mold growth on the windows.

LOCATION: Bathroom

OBSERVATIONS:

  • Infrared thermal imaging revealed missing or insufficient insulation in the walls.
  • Minor condensation-based mold growth was noted on the wall behind the toilet.
  • Evidence of condensation on window and window sill.

CEILING:

  • Mild to moderate amounts of mold growth noted on bathroom ceiling. This occurs when the warm, moist air generated by shower usage interacts with the cool surface of the ceiling. Without adequate ventilation, this causes condensation and subsequent mold growth.

SHOWER:

  • Grout and caulking is in good condition and shows no signs of recent water intrusion.

LOCATION: Master Bathroom

OBSERVATIONS:

  • An unusual odor was noted in this bathroom at time of inspection.

SHOWER:

  • Grout and caulking is in good condition and shows no signs of recent water intrusion.

FLOORING:

  • Elevated moisture detected in flooring adjacent to toilet. Often this is due to a slight failure of the toilet seal. No evidence of significant structural damage was observed. This is likely contributing to the odor in this bathroom.

Recommendations:

  • Contact a plumbing contractor to investigate the toilet seal. Replace if necessary.
  • Install a passive vent between the bathroom walls to improve ventilation.
