I was asked to remove the mold contamination from a single room that is within a building that is full of mold growth. This is for the protection of employees. So it seems foolish to deal with one room in the middle of a huge problem. I bring this up so inspectors/contractors understand that it is your responsibility to explain the futility of this project. I will complete the work that the client requests, but the contract will clearly state that the scope of work will not address the cause of the moisture problem that lead to the growth, or the potential exposure to employees from mold contamination. Remember to do this on your projects and document special conditions like this.

I sometimes have arguments with people and read literature that because of the stack affect of an attic, there is no downward flow of air from the attic to the living space of the home. That is wrong. In this house for example, because there was no ridge vent installed but there are baffels, wind pushes against the house and causes positive air pressue in the attic by air moving through the baffles. When I opened the egress panel into the attic, the force of air pushing against me was comparable to standing in front of a fan. Thus, every hole that penetrates through the ceiling is a potential route for the attic air to migrate into the home. Be observant during your inspections, think about what you are seeing, and consider the impact of the site conditions on the occupants of the home.

As part of an inspection today, I observed this area in a garage. So what caused this mold growth just above the doors? The side of the home faces the west, which is the direction of prevailing wind. There are only two possibilites for the elevated moisture that caused the mold growth. Either the water is condensing on the garage ceiling, or water is condensing in the attic roof decking and the moisture is penetrating through the gypsum board. So when I go into the attic, there is batt insulation except the area near the soffit, which is blown in cellulose. But, the cellulose has been blown about 2 feet back from the soffit due to the wind hitting the front of the garage! This situation creates a cold spot during winter conditions. With condensation, always remember that the moisture is present because warm air is making contact with a cold surface. You will normally see this on a ceiling inside the home. You have to confirm you suspesion by looking in the attic. I have seen areas of insulation pushed away from the soffit as far as 4 feet. In this situation you can remove the mold off the gypsum board without removing the board. When you see something strange like this, think of what you know about how moisture forms and consider the potential problems.

I posted this yesterday, but Facebook is strange to work with sometimes; so here it is again. We completed an assessment for a commercial building for lead paint and asbestos. The original intent was to remodel the building so they needed to know what building materials could create indoor air quality issues. When you intend to remodel or demolition a building, you need to know what materials contain friable asbestos. If you are going to burn the building then you need to know bothe the friable and non-friable asbestos. Also, you need to remove the building materials that contains asbestos above 1%. Lead paint is critical to know when you are going to remodel so you dont create hazardous indoor air quality issues. If the building is to be demolished or burned, then it is not an issue to be addressed. Know the laws that address these two issues because they will come up again and again.

I think I have mentioned this before, but these are great photographs for you to see. The first photo is a typical roof decking with mold growth, ho hum. But the other two illustrate how poor the ventilation was and extensive the condensation was on the decking. Those dark spots on the insulation are the result of water condensing on the roof nail heads and dropping on the insulation. That is a huge amount of water. Although there was a ridge vent, there were no soffit baffels. During a property assessment, look for symptoms of why the mold is there so the problem can be fixed. You dont want it to grow back after it is removed. Otherwise you are only doing half your job.
