How Does Mold Get Into My Attic?
Mold can be found in your home wherever there is moisture: the basement, the kitchen, the bathroom, and the attic are all familiar places that MoldTech discovers infestations. Attic mold removal helps get your home back on the right track, removing active and dead mold colonies and helping find the source of the moisture. Not sure if there’s mold? Mold inspection in Toronto can detect hidden colonies and issues tucked in gables or corners.
What Causes Attic Mold
There are two main reasons we discover attic mold in Toronto. Paying attention to and improving these two faults prevents most attic mold cases, saving you time, money and stress.
The first most common cause of attic mold issues is ventilation — or a lack thereof. Contrary to the rest of our homes, your attic shouldn’t be shut tight against the weather. Instead, it needs to breathe, with air moving in and out constantly to prevent heat buildup. Warm air can hold more moisture, which can then migrate onto surfaces like insulation or roof sheathing in the form of condensation. In a warm, poorly ventilated attic, moisture doesn’t have a chance to dry out, so it can quickly help form mold infestations.
Another common reason for attic mold growth is leaking. The two most common causes for attic leaks are pipe leaks and roofing problems. Storms, shingle age, and low-hanging trees can all cause surprise damage to your roof that lets moisture enter. Some attics even have piping or old boilers tucked under the eaves, all of which can spring a leak.
