Why Mold Removal in Your Attic is Necessary

Mold in the attic is a common problem that homeowners may face. It is caused by the presence of moisture in the space, which provides a suitable environment for mold to grow. Attics are particularly vulnerable to mold growth because they are often poorly ventilated, which allows moisture to accumulate. This can be due to a variety of factors such as inadequate insulation, a lack of ventilation or poor air circulation. Mold growth in the attic can be a serious issue that can cause a range of health problems. Exposure to mold can cause respiratory issues, including coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. It can also trigger allergies and lead to skin irritation and eye irritation. In some cases, mold can even cause infections, particularly in people with weakened immune systems. Mold in the attic can also damage the structure of the home, which can lead to costly repairs. It can cause wood to rot, weaken insulation, and damage drywall. It can also create an unpleasant odor that can spread throughout the home. If you suspect that you have mold in your attic, it is important to address the issue as soon as possible. A professional mold remediation specialist can inspect your attic and identify the source of the problem. They can then take steps to remove the mold and prevent it from returning. This may involve improving ventilation, repairing leaks, and installing additional insulation.

  • Increase Property Value – In any case, mold isn’t something to put on your home features list. Buyers are looking to move into ready homes, not a potential health hazard. Removing mold from your home will keep it in line with health and safety guidelines and put buyers at ease when planning their next move.
  • Preserve Belongings – Attics are often used as a storage spot for family memories, old trophies, and generational keepsakes. When you are dealing with a mold infestation, it can quickly spread and find its new home in your personal belongings. With this in mind, removing mold as soon as you find it will keep your items protected and safe for many more years to come.
  • Contain ContaminationImportant to realize proper removal of mold is essential to preventing further growth and spread of mold spores. Hiring a professional mold removal service ensures that all remnants of mold are removed from your home and that there is no further contamination to other areas in your attic or in your home. 
  • Improved Air Quality – In the long run, moldy air can make you sick and create a musty smell throughout your home. For this reason, mold removal is crucial in enhancing indoor air quality as it effectively eliminates mold spores and mycotoxins, fostering a healthier living environment.

Mold Removal Vs. Remediation - What Should You Choose?

It’s important to understand that there is a difference between mold removal and remediation – at Insulation Co., we do both. Given that mold removal involves physically removing the mold spores from the affected area. Mold remediation, on the other hand, involves not only physically removing the mold but also finding the source of mold growth, cleaning, and sanitizing. This ensures that the root cause of the mold is properly decontaminated as well as eliminating mold spores in the air. Both are beneficial for removing mold, however, remediation is a more holistic, comprehensive approach. Here at Insulation Co., we can take care of all your mold needs, whether removal or remediation. Get in touch with us today for a free estimate!

Frequently Asked Questions About Mold Removal

Without a doubt mold often grows in damp areas, feeding off the moisture in the air. It thrives in dark areas that are hard to see, and since your attic is not frequently used, it can often go unnoticed for months, giving it plenty of freedom to grow and spread.

Some signs that you have been exposed to mold in your home are nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, coughing, rashes, and headaches. While these are all common symptoms of many common illnesses, if your symptoms have been onset for many weeks and are not getting better, it is recommended you see a doctor and have your attic tested for the presence of mold.
If you have had previous water damage in your attic, such as a leaky roof or pipe bursts, then you are more likely to have mold growth. If the water did not dry quickly enough and all the way out, you could have residual moisture, creating an ideal breeding ground for mold. If you do have leaks in your attic, ensure that the entire space is thoroughly dried out and proper ventilation is in place to minimize the risk of mold growth.
Even before symptoms of mold exposure present themselves or visible growth can be seen, contacting mold removal experts after a leak or other water damage can help you prevent mold from ever growing. Regular attic insulation inspections can help you proactively prevent mold and keep you and your family healthy.
The cost of mold removal depends on various factors, such as the size of the attic and the extent of damage. At Insulation Co. LLC, we offer free same-day estimates over the phone.
