  • Elevated moisture was noted in base trim in an area approximately 1 ft².
  • The room is equipped with double paned vinyl windows, with no evidence of condensation or mold problems.
  • Client reported concern about a white substance noted on the exposed subfloor. This substance is a sealing paint applied to the subfloor. There is also a greenish powdery substance that was left behind from the pad. No evidence of mold issues were noted.

Recommendations:
