Why is Attic Moisture a Problem?
Attic moisture can lead to mold, mildew, or other biological growth. The absence of proper ventilation fosters mold growth by allowing moisture to become trapped in the attic. Moldy attic conditions could lead to rot, structural damage, and a variety of health problems for susceptible individuals.
How Can I Achieve Proper Attic Ventilation?
- Adding insulation
- Sealing leaky duct work
- Extending bathroom or kitchen vents or ducting to the exterior of the home
- Increasing ventilation through installing active or passive attic ventilation systems
