"I agree with Bud and Emilian, how do you know the mold problem has been corrected? Mold smells generally dissipate significantly when moisture is removed, and you should have noticed the difference scent-wise. You may be able to use a moisture meter…"

Removal of bad smells from mold contaminated attic

Was asked to trouble shoot a mold issue in a Kneewall assembly.  When I arrived there was a damp and hot (+120) kneewall assembly that had no ventilation.  We corrected the mold issue by installing the proper ventilation to the assembly BUT now the client has a distinct smell that comes into the home.  Is there any way that anyone knows of to eliminate the smell? As I have stated, mold has dried up, but is still there.  Ideas PLEASESee More
