Attic Mold Removal
The attic is one of the most common areas for mold growth, and most people don’t find this out until they are trying to sell their home, upgrade their insulation and are informed by the home inspector or insulation installer. We can help by safely removing the mold in the attic and correcting the source of the cause permanently and guaranteed. Clearance certificates and guarantees will ensure peace of mind to the owner and buyer.
Causes of mold in the attic water damage and excessive moisture causes mold and this is no different in the attic. Most of the time, condensation occurs in your attic due to ventilation issues which in turn causes leaks and moisture. This causes mildew, wood rot and interior water damage. Over time, mold grows and if left untreated, it becomes a big problem if not dealt with.
We do not recommend eliminating mould on your own and we do advise calling professionals for any mould growth found to cover an area of 10 square feet or more, or in any situation in which you are unsure where else mould may have spread.
