Attics can also be an area where mold can grow, primarily due to lack of ventilation within the attic area. Most people realize the importance of insulating an attic, but few realize that the ventilation of the attic is as important. If the attic has in-adequate ventilation, the warm air of the home will rise into the attic and be unable to exit this area. The amount of moisture that the air in your home can hold depends on the temperature of the air. As the temperature goes down, the air is able to hold less moisture. This is why, in cold weather, moisture condenses on cold surfaces (like attic roof sheathing/decking). This moisture provides a perfect situation where mold pollutants grow.
The process for mold removal in attics includes negative air machines, HEPA vacuuming, antimicrobial treatments, and antimicrobial sealant. In addition, the source of moisture must be corrected to prevent recurrence of the mold growth. Our trained technicians have studied and worked in hundreds of attics and can build and implement a solution that is right for you.
