    Default never seen this before

    I performed a inspection today and found that in the master bedroom and bath you could see the outline of every stud and truss in the room its almost like the furnace sooted but only stuck to these features i am wondering if this could be mold i hate to call out mold if its not so. I will try to upload some pictures

    Roger - Looks like classic "ghosting". Search the forum and the previous forum archive
    InspectionNews.com - Home Inspection Home Inspector Inspection Report

    Roger,

    I see this periodically. It appears to be ghosting or alson called shadowing. It can be caused from burning candles etc. Read the posts mentioned, it will give you some insight.
