Window Mold Problems

        Windows and mold go together!!! There are often water leaks in and around windows that permit outdoor rain and moisture to enter the windows and walls to facilitate mold growth. When windows are closed in the winter, high indoor humidity condenses on cold wall windows, allowing mold to grow.

Window Mold Questions & Answers

     Q.
April 29, 2012. I recently discovered that I have a mold problem in my home. There's a mildew/mold smell in my bedroom, and I'm positive that the source is from one of the windows. The window does not open, and always has condensation between the panes of glass. I work graveyard shifts and so had the window covered with a thin blanket and curtains as to block out the light, but recently took off the thin blanket to replace it with something else. Upon doing this I smelled the mildew/mold quite strongly. Also, I cleaned the window before putting up my new blinds, and I found the paint around the window frame chips right off and the wood underneath is practically black. In the very corner of one lower side of the window I noticed a faint rust coloured drip stain that ran from the corner of the window (where there's some cracked paint) and ran down the wall to the baseboard. I haven't noticed any water obviously dripping since we moved to this house, but clearly it happened at some point. I'm sure that it's mold, and needs to be taken care of. I'm not sure, though, how big a job it will be. I'm certain I'll end up needing to hire someone to deal with it. I can perhaps deal with getting rid of the mold, which may be down into the wall and not only around the window, but I'm thinking that I may have to call someone to rebuild part of the wall (if needed) and to install the new window. Who do I even call for that kind of thing? And does it sound to you like it maybe contained to just around the window? Or maybe it's gone all the way down the wall into the next floor? Any answers or suggestions you have would be great. Thanks so much.
    
A. When you smell mold in the bedroom, you know that you have a serious mold risk to your health. The condensation between the glass panes of glass tells you that you have a defective window that should be replaced by a local handyman.  The large home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowe's in the USA and Canada offer installation labor (from outside contractors) for the installation of products they sell, such as windows.  You can also seek out the best local handyman in your neighborhood or area to do the window replacement job. You should also check all around the outside of the window for areas where water can leak into the window.  In addition to window replacement, consider installing an aluminum window canopy outside your window to keep rainfall from soaking your window area. You should also do a very careful mold inspection of the entire bedroom, including beneath and behind all furniture. Learn how to do your own mold inspection at building mold inspection. Scrub all walls, floor, furniture, and furnishings of your bedroom with boric acid powder mix to get rid of any landed/deposited mold spores and mold growth. Read the mix instructions and application directions at Mold Mart, where you can also buy boric acid powder. Read the 25 steps for effective, do it yourself mold remediation. If you have any follow up mold remediation questions, I am here to help you---Phillip Fry, mold consultant, Certified Environmental Hygienist, Certified Mold Inspector, and Certified Mold Remediator.
