Mold and Wallpaper how can SERVPRO of Biloxi, Ocean Springs, & Gulfport help?
Are you flipping a house? Do you find a lot of older homes have wallpaper? The wallpaper trend was very popular when those older homes were being built. Fast forward 20 years and you start to take that wallpaper off the walls and you see “Mold”. This is due to the long term moisture that could be trapped behind the wall paper and the sheetrock. This is more common in humid areas of the home such as in a bathroom. Below is a picture that shows where the moisture was trapped behind the wallpaper and caused “Mold”. This is due to it not being able to dry properly.
***Please note that we do not know it is mold by just looking at it; to properly and scientifically say it is mold an Air Quality test needs to be performed to verify.
