Why Do I Have Mold in My Attic in Lombard?
Mold can grow on essentially any organic substance as long as its two partners-in-crime are present, moisture and oxygen. Our long damp seasons and high humidity levels here in Indiana and Illinois all but invite mold growth to make itself at home in our stagnant areas, like our attics. There is no single cause for mold, but instead a variety of reasons mold can settle in your attic, such as the following examples:
Ventilation or Insulation Deficiency
Bathroom Exhaust Fans
Whole House Fans Pulling Up Hot Air in Winter Months
Storing Personal Belongings in an Area Made for Ventilation
What Do I Do About My Attic Mold?
Left untreated mold in your attic can lead to a variety of larger problems for you and your property, such as structural damage, insulation performance problems, and mold infestation of your living spaces. Although it might seem a practical solution to scrub your mold off with a gallon of household bleach or a store’s promising DIY products, such treatments can be toxic themselves. Instead, contact a certified mold professional who brings knowledge, experience, and safety to your mold situation.
