Cost of Attic Mold Removal
How big is your attic? When it comes to attic mold removal, the question of cost can often be determined by how big your attic is — but not always. At MoldTech, our extensive experience helping homeowners remove mold in the attic has shown that there can be multiple factors that influence the cost and scope of attic mold remediation. Today we’re going to share some of the most common factors that affect the price of mold remediation in Toronto.
How to Find Mold in the Attic
If you’re like us, you rarely go through the attic hatch — so how do you know if you have mold up there? Mold inspection and testing is the best way to determine if there is mold in the attic. Mold can grow underneath insulation, in dark corners, and be hard to spot — but not for MoldTech’s testing and inspection tools.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Mold Removal
- Mold growth.
- The first factor that affects the price of attic mold removal is how much and what classification of the mold is growing in your attic. Avoiding large and costly mold infestations is the most important reason to have small patches of mold removed as soon as possible — because once they grow, so does the remediation cost.
- Where it’s growing.
- Once mold begins to affect supporting structures or other parts of the attic, removal costs will rise. A patch of mold on a joist or wall is straightforward, but removing affected insulation or cutting away damaged wood or drywall will add to overall cost of the job.
- Ongoing damage.
- Regular inspections help eliminate the problems caused by ongoing damage. A small and unseen roof leak may cause cascading problems above and beyond mold growth.
