Garage Mold Inspection Steps
Mold growth can take place INSIDE
walls and on both sides of the garage wall (inside wall surface and outdoor side of
the wall). Garage wall mold growth is the result of water intrusion into the wall
from roof leaks, siding leaks, window water leaks or window water
condensation, plumbing leaks (e.g., plumbing inside or
above the walls), and high humidity above 70% some or all of the time.
Effective garage wall inspection can include these inspection steps:
(1) careful visual inspection of the both wall surfaces (indoor and
(2) if the wall is made of drywall or paneling, cut out a section for visual
inspection for mold growth of the backside of the cut out piece, followed by
fiber optics inspection cable of the interior of each wall space through the
cut out inspection hole made in each wall section; and
(3) scanning the entire wall surface with a moisture meter to locate any
hidden high water content areas, which will be likely places harboring
hidden mold growth.
(4) inspect the
floor of the garage from mold growth caused by water wicking up from the
ground beneath the concrete.
(5) scan the entire garage floor surface with a moisture meter to locate any
hidden high water content areas, which will be the moisture source for
garage mold growth.
In addition, do
mold testing of the garage air,
and of the outward air flow from the garage heating and cooling duct
register, to determine if there are elevated levels of airborne mold spores.
