Case Study: Mold Removal In a Church

Mold in any building can be a bad omen, but in this church it was a sign that there was an issue with the roofing ventilation system. Seen in this first image, the mold was found at the apex of the ceiling, on the drywall around the ceiling beams. Further inspection by Paul Davis Restoration of The Tri-State Area – Cincinnati NKY was when the ventilation issue was discovered. Up until that time, the roof had been re-done with a metal roof, which was assumed to take care of the problem. The ceiling was repainted, but he mold returned.

To determine the full extent of the issue, Paul Davis Restoration removed a section of the roof to get a closer look. It became clear that the damage to materials was extensive, and would require replacing portions of wood, fiberglass insulation, as well as drywall.
