Mold in the home can do much more damage than just what is visible on the surface. Beyond the ugly stains left by mold, the fungi can also lead to serious health issues.
While much attention is given to mold in the bathroom or basement, attic mold is a common problem that many homeowners must deal with.
In this issue, we’ll talk about the main causes of attic mold, and what you can do to get rid of it.
WHAT CAUSES ATTIC MOLD?
The primary culprits for attic mold are poor ventilation, problems with your roof (leaks), insufficient venting from vents/pipes, improperly installed insulation and leakage from the siding and windows.
If the air isn’t ventilating properly once it reaches the attic, the warm air from the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room will mix with the cooler attic air – leading to condensation-producing mold.
HOW CAN I GET RID OF ATTIC MOLD?
While you can get rid of signs of the mold fairly easily, it will come right back if the source of the problem isn’t corrected.
If you think of yourself has a DIY-er, you can certainly try to correct the problem yourself; here’s how.
