Mulkilteo Attic Moisture Experts!
Attic mold often grows in cold and damp climates wherein moisture combines with roof sheathing. The problem occurs when moisture comes in contact with the cellulose structure of the roof sheathing, which leads to fungal growth.
What causes attic mold invasion?
Poor ventilation, disconnected ducting, and ill designed roof structures are the major reasons behind attic mold invasion in the Metro Seattle area. Climatic conditions also act as a catalyst in this area. A cool climate results in high level of humidity in winters, which boosts the growth of mold. When warm damp air comes in contact with your attic space, it quickly interacts with the cold surface of the roof sheathing. When the dew point is reached, water condenses on the surface and makes the surface wet. This creates a conducive atmosphere for the growth of attic mold.
How is attic mold removed?
Encapsulation is a very popular and reliable technique to deal with the problem of attic mold. It involves the application of chemical treatment for the destruction of active spores of mold. This process is started only after the problem of underlying moisture has been dealt with.
