Why DIY Attic Mold Removal in Vaughan is a Risky Move

Published on May 10, 2024

If you discover attic mold in your home, don’t panic and start scrubbing — DIY attic mold removal in Vaughan has hidden dangers and has health and safety risks for the whole family. Attic mold is one of the most common types of household mold discovered during mold testing, and it’s MoldTech’s most commonly requested service. In today’s article, we’ll share some key facts about attic mold growth and why you should never try to remove it on your own. Working with a professional mold remediation team like MoldTech offers valuable expertise and knowledge to ensure your attic mold is gone for good. 

Health Risks Associated with Mold Growth

Why DIY Attic Mold Removal in Vaughan is a Risky MoveFirst, we want to tell you why attic mold isn’t something to ignore. Mold growth in your home is caused by a buildup of heat and lingering moisture indoors. In nature, mold helps to break down materials like wood — but you can see why having furniture, studs, or architectural details breakdown would quickly be disastrous. 

While the physical consequences of indoor mold growth are unsightly and costly to repair, the MoldTech team is more concerned about the long—and short-term health effects. Mold growth has myriad health effects that range from mildly annoying to potentially debilitating. 

While many people only experience discomfort like sneezing or headaches, compelling research suggests children may have a greater likelihood of developing asthma when living in a home affected by mold growth. Long-term studies underway now may point to increased risks of lung disease or cancer, too, so mold testing and removal today may have lifelong effects. 

The Dangers of DIY Attic Mold Removal

While there are many tasks a savvy homeowner can DIY around the home, we suggest leaving mold removal to the professionals, for several crucial reasons. 

Lack of proper equipment and knowledge.

Mold isn’t inert — it’s a living organism that wants to survive, and without proper tools or solutions, even the most careful homeowner has little chance of eliminating it. At MoldTech, we have the tools and the training to seek out and eradicate even the most stubborn mold colonies.

Risk of exposure to spores. 

Mold spores, tiny seed-like particles the parent colony uses to spread, are the primary way mold affects our bodies. Spores are easy to breathe in and lodge in our eyes, nose, hair, skin, and respiratory system, causing irritation and inflammation. Spores may also hitch a ride to other areas of your home on clothes, tools, or shoes.

Safe and effective mold removal techniques.

Hardware store chemicals and mold removal tools often do more harm than good, posing risks to your health and home. MoldTech only uses professional-grade tools and equipment recommended by industry regulators like NAMP or IAQA.

Preventing future mold growth.

To permanently remove mold growth, you need to know how it started in the first place — and it can be difficult for the untrained eye to uncover subtle causes. While a one-off event like a flood is an obvious cause of mold growth, attics are unique environments with airflow, humidity, and insulation all playing roles in mold growth. Uncovering the cause of attic mold growth is often impossible without professional expertise.
