Question from Jean:
I don't know if you remember doing the inspection in Hoboken. We are renting out the unit and I just went in and saw this on the walls. What do you think it could be from? We live right above and while we can see screws it's nowhere near as bad! Appreciate any insight!
Answer from Willy:
It's from HIGH humidity in the apartment. The moisture is affecting every wall stud and sheet rock nail or screw. The nails/screws are steel so they conduct temperature changes very quickly and because they are steel, they rust. Is the basement wet? Do they have a lot of plants? Tropical fish tanks? Or do they burn a lot of candles and incense? These could all be the cause and you are correct its called GHOSTING.
