Re: Drywall Cracking Lack of Furnace?? 11 years 9 months ago #37558

I see lots of separation between wall and wood trim though.
Had some bad ghosting of studs the other day to.

The issue is that the buyer is now concerned, since the other inspector told him his walls are going to mold, that once he puts in a furnace mold will start growing on the drywall. The only way I know this too happen is if they throw way to much humidity in the air and close up the house with lack of ventilation. I could see high humidity and extremely cold walls possible causing condensation on the cold drywall, but this would have to be much higher humidity. Relative humidity is typically low in winter.. I spoke to the gentlemen doing the dewinterization to see if he has ever seen condensation form on the walls when heating the home. He is using gas heaters to warm the interior and fresh air intake to fire them. He has not seen moisture on the walls. So Bert, if moisture gets into the walls because of no furnace, is it likely to mold then when a furnace is installed or will it likely dry out! I believe it is a matter of controlling the humidity levels. I know I am going to moisture check the drywall with my meter and document that!

Turning on the furnace should dry the walls out rather quickly.
