Mold on ceilings and walls deteriorating
Posted: Sun Sep 15, 2019 8:41 pm
We purchased a Clayton Dream home 2000 a couple years ago. Every summer we have mold coming through on the ceiling. We had an inspector come through and he said it was bc of heat intrusion. That when the hot air hits the cold air inside it causes condensation and wets the ceiling which causes mold. Did a mold test and it was suggested that we clean our ducts. Called the guy out to come look at the ducts and he said that the moisture in our walls were 100% and in fact some parts of our walls have rotted out because of it. He also said that heat intrusion is cause mold but that is only a cause and effect. That the real problem is that our attic in this cathedral ceiling home is not venting properly, it’s to hot. The people we purchased the home from put a metal roof o top of the original roof. I got someone to come out a whirly bird but he says because it’s all cathedral ceilings that it’s only a small “attic” space and it probably all insulation and a whirly bird would not help. Can someone please shed light on this issue.
