How to Detect Mold Inside Walls

mold in walls

Mold can be found through out different spaces around a non ventilated space. Sometimes mold can be seen through out walls, ceilings, in bathrooms, and in HVAC systems. However, mold can be hiding behind walls and that is a big problem because mold might have been growing inside the walls without you even noticing. Mold grows inside walls when spaces in the wall contain pockets of humid and moisture air. Condensation and water leaks are two most commonly known causes of mold growth. Cracked or peeling paint can be one indication that moisture might exist in the wall.

WHAT DEVICES ARE USED TO DETECT MOLD INSIDE WALLS

Different signs that mold exist in walls will help you indicate that there might be mold in a home, but an inspection should be done to know if there really is mold hiding in the walls. The Indoor Air Quality Association produced a video talking about two mold detecting tools to investigate where mold is inside walls. He talks about using a borescope which is a visual inspection device and different moisture detecting tools.
