How to Prevent Attic Mold Regrowth

Published on April 10, 2024

How to Prevent Attic Mold RegrowthOne of the most frustrating aspects of tackling attic mold removal by yourself is having the infestation regrow. At MoldTech, we help families struggling with black mold removal effectively and permanently eradicate mold growth indoors. Like other types of fungi, mold can be erased at the surface level, only to spring back to life, thanks to roots hiding deep within their host materials. Professional mold removal is critical in destroying these roots and ensuring no airborne spores remain in your environment. Mold can devastate your property and health, which is why we strongly recommend mold remediation as soon as you become aware of an infestation. 

Identify the Root Cause of Mold Growth in the Attic

Mold can grow in the attic for many reasons, but the overarching cause we see at MoldTech is simple: folks don’t visit the attic, so problems spiral out of control, and mold can grow unchecked. Besides inattention, some of the root causes of attic mold are: 

  • Moisture intrusion from inside or out.
  • Ventilation issues caused by blocked or inadequate vents.
  • Roof leaks and damage. 
  • Plumbing that breaks, leaks, or causes condensation. 
  • High humidity. 

Steps to Prevent Attic Mold Growth

The most important part of black mold removal is what you do before and after: prevention. There are several easy steps you can take today to avoid a mold infestation: 

Address root causes.

Annual mold inspection or testing may help you identify simmering problems that can lead to mold growth. Otherwise, MoldTech suggests inspecting your roof after storms to identify damage, sealing air leaks and upgrading your insulation.

Regular cleaning and maintenance.

The attic doesn’t need a vacuum like the living room, but after mold, moisture, or other attic problems, starting with a clean slate is a good idea. Replace old or damaged insulation, remove debris like wood or paper (two of mold’s favourite hosts), and ensure that your attic remains dry and well-ventilated all year round.

Use mold resistant-materials.

During your mold removal, the MoldTech team can advise you on what mold-resistant materials may be appropriate for your attic. Modern building materials like drywall, insulation, and paint are now manufactured with mold-resistant properties, which may be appropriate for your space. 

Hiring a Professional Mold Remediation Company

One of the biggest mistakes a homeowner can make is trying to remediate mold independently. DIY mold removal is the number one cause of household mold regrowth and can compound problems and damage. At MoldTech, we follow a professional methodology backed by science-based standards recommended by accreditation and regulatory bodies. This approach gives you confidence that the mold has been eradicated,  that there is no cross-contamination, and that our methods will protect you and your family during and after remediation.
