  • Moderate mold growth was noted on the windows.
  • Evidence of water damage is present on the ceiling tiles and the window framing. The source of moisture for his damage is roof leaks.
  • Fallen ceiling tiles are present with water stains on the backing. This is further damage from the roof leaks.

Recommendations:

  • Hire a qualified roofing contractor to inspect the roof and repair the leaks. Environix can recommend roofing companies if desired.
  • Patch the damaged window framing and drywall.
  • Replace damaged ceiling tiles after roof is repaired. Ceiling tiles must first be tested fro asbestos.

LOCATION:  Lounge

Observations:

  • Ceiling tiles have fallen from precious or current roof leak, light mold was found beyond tiles on sheetrock.
  • No elevated moisture was detected in any tested building materials. This means the leak is either stopped or it is really minor.
  • The mold that was found was not enough to affect the air quality of the lounge area. However if there is a roof leak and it continues to affect the ceiling the issue could get worse and the air quality could be compromised.

General Recommendations:

  • Hire a qualified roofing contractor to inspect the roof and repair the leaks. Environix can recommend roofing companies if desired.
  • Replace damaged ceiling tiles after roof is repaired. Ceiling tiles must first be tested fro asbestos.
