With all of the rain we have been having here the moisture restoration company’s have been booming. My client this morning was one such company wanted to know if he had removed all of the moisture as the carpet had been removed leaving bare slab floor and wet wall plates. The humidity inside was at 72% outside was 50%. The A/C unit was operating 24/7 dehumidifiers operating 5 days with stationary fans operating within. Why was the inside humidity still so high.
Here is an image of the exterior wall with a strange pattern. This home had a added on room with about 2-3 degree pitch this pattern was indicated on the wall where the room addition began my first thought was roof leak into the wall. The shingles were new with no problems indicated. There were also no A/C vents close to this area anyone care to make a wild guess what was going on in this wall. By nature I am a nosy person and when I see something like this I have to have a explanation and I did find the cause.
