It’s no secret that the dangers of attic mold are real for the residents of Illinois and Indiana. Our long damp seasons and high humidity all but invite mold to move into stagnant areas such as our attics. It’s when that attic mold stays unaddressed that danger creeps in. If you have spotted mold growth in your attic, it’s time to call in a certified mold professional from Guardian Mold Prevent.
Why Do I Have Mold in My Attic?
Mold can grow basically on any organic substance as long as oxygen and moisture are present. It can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. This means that mold can grow in your attic. There is no single cause for mold other than the moisture that gets caught up in a stagnant space. The moisture may arrive due to situations such as insulation or ventilation deficiency, bathroom exhaust fans, whole house fans pulling up hot air in the winter, and even storing personal belongings in an area designed for ventilation.
Why is Attic Mold Dangerous?
Left unaddressed, attic mold can significantly interfere with your insulation performance and essentially cause impressive structural damage in your attic. Eventually, you will end up with a mold infestation in your home, which will in turn have a substantial impact on the air quality for those living inside.
