Attic Mold Removal
Besides your basement, your attic is probably the second most susceptible area in your home when it comes to mold. You don’t have to be a genius to understand why this is. Just like your basement, it provides the spores with everything they need to flourish. This includes heat, humidity, and more food than they could ever want in the form of your wood sheathing or features. Add to this that few people go into their attic other than to put away the Christmas decorations, and one quickly begins to see that we have a recipe for mold nirvana.
Whilst one can get a faint scent of mold at the best of times, when it comes to attic mold, it can knock your socks off. The traits are amplified due to the lack of airflow and high humidity levels. In serious cases, this smell can penetrate other parts of your home. To ensure you nip the problem in the bud before anything happens, we would suggest you trust your nose and give us a call the moment you smell anything funky in your attic. The quicker you act, the quicker we can get it sorted.
Three Main Causes
Just like all the factors that come together to help the mold thrive, we have identified 3 main culprits when it comes to the source of mold growth in your attic. Firstly we have noticed, and this is a general theme, that 99% of attics are poorly ventilated. This situation is exacerbated due to any dryer vents or bathroom fans that are not exhausted correctly. Whilst these two reasons are common, the number one culprit when it comes to sources in attics is leaky roofs and general roofing issues. Fortunately for you, we have a set of solutions that can handle all of them and so much more.
Have you noticed that a black discoloration on your wooden beams or sheathing has started to develop? This could be a sign of black mold, and please believe us when we say that this is not something to be messed around with.
