Hi-

I dicovered mold in my home 2 years ago. I was fortunate, and the mold was limited to one location under a bathroom window. I had a licensed professional mold contractor remove what was found and apply antimicrobial chemicals to the area before I closed the wall back up. The moisture that allowed the mold to grow came from a leaky tub drain that was also replaced.

I decided to replace the window in that area recently, and I removed the drywall around the opening to allow the window to be measured. Now the studs that frame the opening are visible as well as the felt paper that serves as the flashing under the window. Its been exposed for a few months as its taken forever to get the window measured and ordered due to the shortage of contractors (hurricane issues-I live in Louisiana). I've noticed that mildew has begun to grow on the felt paper. This is happening because the bathroom is not vented.

I will be venting the bathroom soon and the mildewed felt paper will be replaced when the window is fixed. Now here' my question:

If there's mildew on the felt paper, could there be mold in the wall again? I thought that the antimicrobial would prevent mold from growing back, but I just want to get some outside opinions before I close up the wall for good once the window is installed.

Thank you for any advice.

wrw.
