ATTIC & HOME MOLD REMEDIATION

ATTIC & HOME MOLD

Mold is a common problem in many households. In fact, global studies have found that around a big portion of homes contain Cladosporium molds which are often dark brown or black, others contain penicillium molds which can appear in shades of blue or green. Not only is mold not particularly nice to look at, but it can also cause a wide range of health problems, especially in children with weak immune systems or in adults who suffer from allergies or asthma.

HOW TO PREVENT MOLD FROM ATTIC?

As the saying goes, “prevention is better than cure”, prevention of mold is any day better than the last-minute haste. From repairing your water pipes, roofs, and other water problems and moisture leading problems to insulating and ventilating your attic right is what goes in here.

Minimal difference in exterior and interior temperature

Ensure there is minimal difference in temperature from the exterior (outside) and interior (inside the attic) to prevent condensation on the underside of roof sheathing.

Air seal all points of entry

Attic air seal all points of entry such as (bathroom fans and hoses, recessed lighting/ pot lights, use low temperature light bulbs (LED), install or fix weather stripping around attic hatch, seal around holes, gaps, and cracks inside the attic including wiring, plumbing vent pipes, or ducts (in some cases).

Check for damage or blocked ventilation

Ensure all rafter ventilation/ baffles are not damaged or blocked with insulation.
