Leaky Roof Water Damage & Mold Damage
     Q.
Dec. 3, 2012. We live the San Francisco Bay Area, and recently underwent a torrential storm of about three days. The roof atop our sunroom began leaking terribly, and although we have since covered the rooftop with bricks and tarp, the ceiling itself is drenched still.  Our concern is that mold will begin growing in the waterlogged portion of the ceiling -- which is about 7' x 15'. I have read that in order to prevent mold growth, we have 24-48 hours to act, and today is now the second day. I have pored through masses of literature on the internet but can not seem to locate a solution (if any exists) for how to now salvage our ceiling before mold begins to grow -- should we purchase a large or industrial-size dehumidifier, or is there another product or device we should use? We would be most indebted for even a quick, off-the-top-of-your-head response as to how we might best try to arrest this worrisome situation, Mr. Fry. Thank you very much for any insight which you might provide.
    
A. Running a big capacity dehumidifier (from an appliance store) in the sun room will help dry out the ceiling from the bottom, room-side of the ceiling, but the problem is that your ceiling is likely to be very wet and saturated above the ceiling surface. Your first step is to close off the sun room from the rest of your house with floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, clear plastic sheeting (from a large hardware or home improvement store) to keep mold spores from leaving the sun room to mold cross-contaminate the rest of your house. Second, you need to cut a number of 2 inch by 2 inch holes into, and all over, the ceiling to help air out the wet roof above the ceiling surface. Third, use a couple of strong fans aimed upward toward the ceiling to supplement the drying effectivenss of the dehumidifier. Fourth, if you want to be assured of no mold growth, order our home model Bio3Blaster ozone generator ($475) with its hose attachment to inject through the hose massive amounts of ozone gas into the various drying holes you have cut into the ceiling. After you have used the ozone generator for several different six hour sessions, you can make big money renting out your ozone generator to other property owners who have mold growth or pet odor problems---charge at least $75 to $100 per day rent. Read about the ozone generator at http://www.ozonegeneratorkillsmold.com. You can order it on the phone by calling me at 1-480-310-7970 or by fax or email or by our online shopping cart. Fifth, your last step is to get the roof leaks fixed as soon as possible to avoid future water intrusion. If you have follow up questions, phone me or email me. Best wishes, Phillip Fry, mold consultant, Certified Environmental Hygienist, Certified Mold Inspector, Certified Mold Remediator, and Certified Ozone Professional. 

        Q. I need more information about mold types and precautions. We had a leaky roof and the water damage caused a significant hole in our closet.  Now, the problem is still there even after a couple of repairs and it smells like it is damp all of the time.  Because of a mold problem in an apartment I used to live in several years ago, I am familiar with the smell.  I smell the same thing in my bedroom although I cannot see it.  How can I determine whether or not this is toxic mold and/or dangerous for my toddler and I who sleep together on a bed next to the closet that I think may have a big mold problem? Please advise and/or refer us to the appropriate company. [Jan. 11, 2003] 
         A. To know all about the different types of dangerous molds, please visit: Mold Species. A leaky roof enables plenty of water to enter INSIDE the ceilings and walls, thus causing [after 24 hours of wetness] large-scale mold growth and infestation INSIDE ceiling and wall cavities, and on and in the wood timbers and other building materials of the ceilings and walls. The best mold inspection technique to detect water problems and mold problems inside ceiling, wall, and floors is to cut small [1/2 inch] holes throughout the suspect area and then inspect same with a fiber optics inspection device, a standard and customary procedure for our Certified Mold Inspectors. If mold growth is visually detected, air samples [for mold laboratory analysis and identification] can be sucked out of the inspection holes by an air pump attached to either a mold culture plate impactor [best method] or an air sampling cassette. Mold lab analysis will determine what Mold Species are growing in the wall and/or ceiling cavities by the mold spores discovered in the collected air samples. As an alternative to drawing out air samples, inspection holes in the immediate vicinity of mold sightings can be enlarged to permit the taking of direct physical samples of the mold growth. Direct physical mold sampling is usually better than air sampling to facilitate accurate mold identification. Also visit: Toxic Mold Testing
