I feel this is a great example of how air gets blocked from exiting the attic. Instead of installing a ridge vent, the contractor installed a pot vent. See how the air can flow on one side of the center spine of the ridge, but it blocks the air from flowing to the vent from the other side? The result is mold growth. Here, the pot vents should be abandon and a ridge vent installed.

I received a call for papers for the next Indoor Air Quality Association Conference that will be in Chicago IL from January 22 to 24, 2018. I have decided to submit an abstract for publication on a topic that has been dear to me for many years. All of you should be a member of a professional association and participate. Not only in learning, but also in the sharing of what you know. EVERY time I have attended a conference, I have changed the way I do business. I meet people that I call to ask about their experiences on problems that I am seeing. Remember I am starting a Canton Chapter of IAQA so if you cannot attend a conference at the moment, this would be the next best thing.

I was out all last week to a class in Michigan. Learn learn learn. I went to a house today and looked at a semi-indoor pool. I have seen many of these so it is worth mentioning. These almost always create conditions for mold growth. The saving event for this property was that the walls on three sides were screened in and not closed with glass. The second photograph is of the ceiling that showed a small amount of mold growth on the paint. It would have been better if they would have used a ridge vent so the humidity could escape. Look for this kind of situation and always be on guard with anything that causes elevated humidity.

I learned something yesterday that is useful to everyone that looks at moisture content of building materials. There was a master bathroom that had a water pipe explode and ran for 3 days. I was hired to monitor the dryout activities. So I was measuring the moisture content of the master bathroom ceramic tile. Non-penetrating moisture meters send a signal 1.25 inches into the substrate. The layers of building materials are the ceramic tile, then cement board, then OSB board. The concern is that water penetrates the grout between the tile and goes into the cement board. When I used the wood scale it indicated the materials were saturated, when I used the Cement scale it read zero. When I measured from below the floor (looking up at the OSB board flooring under the ceramic tile) and I used the wood scale it showed saturated. When I used a pinned moisture meter (using 1/4 inch pins) is indicated 10%, but when I set 3/4 inch pins which would touch the cement board it read saturated. So after 4 days of drying there was no change in the moisutre content of these layers. So the decision is do you have to remove the ceramic tile? Is the cement floor that is under the ceramic tile wet and cannot dryout? How can you tell? Solution: I ended up coring a 1 1/4 inch hole under the ceramic tile and measuring the moisture content of the OSB board that was in direct contact with the cement board. I did several and it averaged 8%, which is fine. So why did I my meters indicate saturated conditions? I called the manufacturer of the cement board and they use aluminum wire in their boards!! So the meters were measuring the electrical conductance of the wire, not moisture. Wow, what a story. Problem solving is important and you cannot simply go to the easiest solution. Who would have been financially responsible if they had pulled the floor up and the cement board was dry; then I found out about the wire? Got an unknown issue? you have to chew on it.
