Robert Jones Posted April 14, 2010 Report Share Posted April 14, 2010 I was asked to check out a condo that had a musty odor. Approx a year ago the condo owner had to have repairs performed due to a leak from the bathroom water line. The new owner is complaining of the smell and it is quite noticeable. She even pointed out some of her interior plants that had visible mold growth on top of the soil. I ran the moisture meter around the area that was repaired it was dry. I then tested the wall area on the interior of the bathroom and had a 25%+ reading in an area where no water lines are installed. The condo owner had a contractor come out and open the wall up and it was dry, no stains what so ever. I am using a Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus. The "smell" was really noticeable around the bathroom area. No leaks, floor was in good shape, fan working and being used. Anyone have any other ideas on what might be causing this? And why would my moisture meter have read so high if there was no moisture present? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
