Creating a Healthy Attic
When it comes to creating a Healthy Attic it can be broken down into three parts: Mold Removal, Insulation, and Ventilation. We often come across mold growing in attics. There are a number of reasons why mold might start growing in an attic, but the two biggest reasons are humidity and moisture. We often see mold start growing in attics because there is a lack of insulation which causes the attic sheeting to frost and condensate due to the different temperatures inside compared to outside your house. Another key factor is the bathroom exhaust fans that aren't routed properly. When your bathroom exhaust is not routed properly it blows moisture and humidity into the attic that isn't supposed to be there. Poor ventilation is another huge key factor causing mold growth inside an attic. If there isn't proper airflow moving from your soffits to your ridge vent, it could keep unwanted humidity and moisture in your attic causing mold to grow.

Our Solution for MOLD
Your overall health is important to us so the first step to every mold job is to make sure the worksite is sealed and contained to prevent cross-contamination in the rest of the house. After the worksite is contained and secured our solution for attic mold remediation is to dry out the attic and treat the affected building materials by using specialized HEPA equipment and an EPA registered disinfectant. After the mold removal is completed we offer our clients different solutions to help prevent the mold from returning.
If you suspect you have mold in your attic, please don't panic. Give us a call and we can come out and perform an inspection or even get your attic tested for mold. If it turns out you need mold remediation performed it is important to stay calm and reach out for professional assistance.
OUR SOLUTION FOR INSULATION
Installing adequate insulation is one of the solutions we offer to our clients to help prevent the return of mold. Insulation is a huge part of humidity and moisture control. If there is a lack of insulation in the attic it could cause the sheeting to frost or condensate due to the different temperatures inside your house compared to outside, resulting in mold growth.
If you suspect you don't have enough insulation or if it needs to be replaced, give us a call and we can come out and perform an inspection. If it turns out you need insulation services performed reach out for professional assistance.
Our Solution for Proper VENTILATION
Proper ventilation is an important aspect of creating a healthy attic. If there isn't proper airflow in your attic it could cause humidity and moisture issues that could result in mold growth and wood rot. Another big problem we see in attics is bathroom exhaust fans not being routed properly. This causes extra moisture and humidity from the bathroom to be released into the attic.
Our solutions for proper ventilation are replacing soffits and installing baffles. We replace old wood soffits that don't allow airflow into the attic with new aluminum soffits with vents. Baffles are installed to help the air travel from the soffit vents to the ridge vent of the attic.
