Drywall Mold

Mold on drywall or inside walls is common anywhere moisture or condensation is present. When moisture is present in drywall mold and fungus can form over a short period of time.

Finding Mold on Walls in Metro Vancouver

In most cases mold on walls or drywall will show water staining or greyish black discolouration if mold is present on the surface. Mold may be hidden inside the wall or on the back side of the drywall if the moisture source is coming from behind or above. This mold may be difficult to detect. Mold growth on drywall or inside walls can be the result of numerous sources. These include building envelope issues, roof failure or elevated humidity levels. Mold on walls can quickly become an indoor air quality problem if not addressed.

Assessing Drywall Mold

ABM Environmental can examine the area to quickly determine if there is mold present and the source of the mold. First, a thermal imaging camera scans the area of concern. This quickly and accurately locates sources of moisture. Moisture in the area is measured to determine if there is an active water source present within the building. Relative humidity in various areas of the building are mapped and the ventilation systems are assessed to determine if they are functioning properly.

Testing Drywall Mold

Surface mold tests can find the species of mold present. Air samples can be taken to determine the levels of mold in the air. ABM Environmental uses state of the art testing equipment to sample the air. Even mold hidden behind walls or floors can be detected in the air sample. We identify the different types of mold and determine the exact quantity of mold in the air.
