Question

I am concerned that there is mold behind the drywall in my cathedral ceiling. How do I address it?

Asked by c. jason

I think the leak has been fixed but my ceiling is damaged and I am afraid to fix it because there may be mold behind the drywall. Do I need to tear down the whole ceiling? Or is there another way to figure out if there is mold behind the drywall.

Companies that specialize in flood/fire remediation use moisture meters to determine locations of moisture content that can help pinpoint the problem.

Once located, you can open a small area of the ceiling to investigate.
