Armstrong’s Restoration’s Expert Mold Remediation
Besides basements, there’s no better place for mold to grow than in an attic because many of them are poorly ventilated. They contain more than enough moisture for the mold to latch onto and spread to the lower regions of your house. If you can smell musty odors and see water spots on the ceiling, don’t ignore the problem and continue with your day; contact Armstrong’s Restoration. Our team knows how to remove the surface mold and eradicate the roots, and we always provide expert advice for avoiding future issues. Don’t give in to the mold. We can help you conquer it.
How Attic Mold Occurs
Mold occurs naturally in the outside world, where it’s a benign and even helpful fungus. However, its spores can travel through the air, on clothing and pet fur, and through air conditioner systems. They can latch onto flooding from storms and enter through the roof. No matter the cause or source, mold can have negative impacts on your health and the value of your property. Your attic’s unique conditions promote and facilitate mold growth. They include:
Condensation: If you want to eliminate costly mold outbreaks, the best thing to do is address condensation. Armstrong’s Restoration can help locate where excess moisture originates, helping you address the problem.
Poor ventilation: Most roofing systems contain built-in ventilation, which circulates air underneath the roof. If you have poor ventilation, Florida’s hot and sticky summer will create condensation build-up, which could attract mold spores.
Excessive heat: Overwhelming heat breeds moisture, and that’s all a few mold spores need to grow and spread throughout the rest of your house. One way to combat this issue is to cool down the attic. We can suggest ideas to prevent future problems. For the time being, our professional remediators can remove all mold found in the attic.
High humidity (over 55%): Humidity creates moisture and condensation, and the attic can be one of the most humid rooms in the house. If you have a mold problem, humidity could be the culprit.
Roof leaks: Leaky roofs should be handled immediately because they’re the most apparent cause of attic mold.
