1 Cadmus Environmental Mold Inspection Report Mold Inspection Report Example Page 1 of 12

2 Background Information A mold inspection and assessment was conducted by Wendy Cadmus at this 33 year old one-story residence, as authorized by the owners and in the presence of owners. Extensive rainfall had occurred in the days preceding this inspection. This home received extensive interior and exterior damage when a mature tree uprooted and bisected this home from north to south colliding into the roof and ceiling of the laundry room, kitchen, dining room, foyer, study and boy s room. Very little of this home did not have water damage from either the uprooted tree damage or from water that was driven in by hurricane force winds. The purpose of this inspection was to examine the home and identify the extent and type of mold growth present. To accomplish this goal, four surface samples were taken of visible mold. The samples were analyzed by EMSL Laboratories. This inspection was conducted in accordance with state regulations as well as current industry guidelines and practices. This assessment is not a certificate, assurance, warranty or guarantee of future conditions or performance, but is an assessment of the conditions present and detected on the date of this inspection.

4 Summary of the Lab Results and Visual Inspection 1. Aspergillus and Penicillium are the predominant molds growing throughout this residence in areas where water intrusion from Hurricane Ike allowed water to enter. 2. Water continues to enter this residence via the kitchen ceiling. 3. Wall and ceiling damage from water intrusion occurred in the laundry room, rear entry hall, kitchen, foyer, study, dining room and boy s room. There is evidence of ceiling damage from water intrusion in the west den and girl s room. The floors in the east dining and living rooms are rippled from water intrusion. The east and west kitchen walls behind the cabinets are currently retaining moisture. 4. Elevated moisture levels of 18% - 70% were observed using the Protimeter Mini moisture meter at the east and west walls of the kitchen. The sheetrock and cabinets were not removed from this area and so did not allow for visual inspection behind the cabinets and walls. Mold is very likely growing behind these walls due to the continued presence of moisture behind this sheetrock. 5. Ponding water is visible on the east living room and kitchen floors. Heavy rainfall occurred for several days prior to this inspection. Possible Allergenic Health Effects of Aspergillus: Over 185 species of Aspergillus exist and the health effects cover a wide scope, ranging from an "allergy"-type illness to life-threatening generalized infections. On the mild end are allergytype illnesses, including respiratory distress, coughing, sneezing and sinusitis. According to a recent Mayo Clinic study, one in seven Americans suffers from acute fungal sinusitis. Acute symptoms of exposure can include extrinsic asthma, edema and bronchiospasms and chronic cases may develop pulmonary emphysema. Immune-compromised individuals exposed to certain species of Aspergillus may experience more serious responses. Diseases caused by Aspergillus are called Aspergillosis. Mold-induced asthma can also result from extended exposure to this mold, depending upon an individual s susceptibility. Possible Allergenic Health Effects of Penicillium: Penicillium may cause hypersensitivity Pneumonitis, also referred to as allergic alveolitis, in susceptible individuals. Penicillium can cause skin reactions on contact. Acute symptoms of exposure can include extrinsic asthma, edema and bronchiospasms and chronic cases may develop pulmonary emphysema. The health of the residents, and in particular the two young children living in this residence, need to be considered and steps need to be taken to identify and eliminate the mold present in this residence.

Please contact me if you have any questions on information in this report. I am available to run air samples after this work is completed to provide verification that airborne molds are at an acceptable level. Very truly yours, Wendy V. Cadmus Wendy V.

11 Health Concerns: The degree of risk from exposure to mold is determined by a person's general health and pre-existing sensitivity to mold, as well as the concentration of the mold bloom. Harvard Preserve January 16, 2007 Mold spores are present throughout our outdoor environment and provide a useful function in recycling organic materials. Every building has mold spores and fragments present within their interior and so we all have contact with mold on a daily basis both outdoors and indoors. The most common negative reaction is an allergic response of sneezing, eye irritation and runny nose, etc similar to seasonal allergies. Some molds produce airborne toxins called mycotoxins that can cause serious breathing difficulties, dizziness, and flu-like symptoms and bleeding in the lungs even with healthy individuals if the size of growth and exposure time is high enough. The elderly, infants, pregnant women, immune-compromised individuals, chemotherapy patients and individuals with respiratory problems are the most susceptible to infections and disease that can result from too much exposure to toxic and pathogenic molds. The size of the area of mold growth and the frequency of exposure to the mold can affect response. For example, Farmer s Lung is an allergic disease caused by breathing in the dust from moldy hay. Preventing and Eliminating Mold: Mold needs moisture and organic material to grow. Since mold growth can occur within of water intrusion conditions identifying and eliminating the source of moisture and removing any remaining moisture needs to occur as soon as possible. If you find mold growth in your home the best course of action is dry up any moisture and identify and eliminate the source of moisture. The mold growth needs to be removed either through cleaning or by replacing the material, depending upon the building material affected and the size of the growth. Hard surfaces, such as tile, concrete and metal can be cleaned using a sponge and a mixture of water and detergent. Even if mold has gone dormant from a lack of moisture or organic food, it needs to be cleaned because once moisture returns it will resume growth. Mold Inspection Report Example Page 6 of 12
