Mold / Moisture in the Attic
If left untreated, dangerous black mold growing in your home can cause allergies and other health problems.
Mold can only grow in a moist atmosphere. Your home’s attic is especially vulnerable to mold, because moisture and humidity are easily trapped in a poorly ventilated attic spaces.
Excess moisture in the attic can be caused by:
- Water coming in through the roof
- Moisture coming into the attic from inside your home, if the ceiling is not properly sealed and made air tight
- Poor ventilation of washing machines, kitchen and bathroom exhausts
- Inadequate insulation around areas prone to leaks
- Water damaged insulation
The average family of 4 put 2-4 gallons of water in the air just from perspiration. By reducing or eliminating moisture in your attic, you can drastically reduce the chances of developing black mold.
