How to Inspect for Moisture Intrusion Defects

Tuesday, May 19, 2015. 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM, Mountain Time (US & Canada)

In this free class, we'll learn how to:
  • inspect building components that may allow moisture intrusion;
  • describe the ways energy, moisture, water, and vapor move through a building; and
  • report structural damage caused by water intrusion.
Hundreds of images taken during several home inspections will be reviewed.

If you can't make it to class, no problem. Register anyway, and I'll email you the video recording.

The purpose of this publication is to provide accurate and useful information for performing mold inspections of residential buildings. This book covers the science, properties and causes of mold, as well as the potential hazards it presents to structures and to occupants' health. Inspectors will learn how to inspect and test for mold both before and after remediation.

How to Inspect for Air Leakage in a Home

Click here to watch the video.

A comfortable, safe, and energy-efficient home requires:
  • a fully insulated thermal envelope or thermal boundary.
  • a well-sealed air barrier: Since air carries heat and moisture, the condition of the air barrier plays a major role in the movement of heat and moisture through the building.
  • thermal and air boundaries that are continuous and in contact with one another. The motto is, "seal tight, insulate right."
  • efficient, properly sized equipment to condition the living space and heat water--bigger is not better.
  • a well-designed and balanced air distribution system.
  • healthy indoor air quality: IAQ is a key health and safety concern. Home energy contractors should test for carbon monoxide (CO) levels, backdrafting, and mold and moisture issues to make sure they leave all homes safe for the residents.
