Consider Ways to Avoid Future Mold Removal Worries

Spring is the perfect time to look up into the rafters of your attic, looking for signs of water incursion and resultant microbial damage. Address fungal growth during the pause between heating and air conditioning, minimizing disruption to your family's comfort. Ignoring attic mold sets up a situation where our hot, humid climate will encourage even more damage, threatening the integrity of your roof and risking the downward migration of mold colonies into your living space.

Damaging Conditions: Both Flow Down and Rise Up

Accomplish Johns Creek mold removal before you button up your home for the cooling season. Structural components of your attic took a beating during the temperature extremes and ice and snow buildup of winter. The one-two punch of moisture intruding through roof leaks and the condensation on the cold surfaces when warmer, moist air rises is devastating. Rafters or trusses and the underside of roof decking all provide a porous, organic surface upon which spores already in the space absorb water, germinate, and begin multiplying into destructive colonies.  

Professional Attic Mold Remediation

Tap into the skills and experience of AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford to assess your attic mold scenario and plan for effective removal and prevention of future infestation. Our crews have mastered the industry standard mold remediation protocol developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through training from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors (NORMI). The process we use includes the following: 

  • Inspection to determine all affected areas and the moisture source causing the issues

  • Containment of the workspace to prevent spread of spores and other moldy debris

  • Mechanical mold source removal with brushes, scrapers, and other scrubbing tools

  • Broadcast blasting with media such as soda or dry ice if needed to reach otherwise inaccessible building materials  

  • Collection, bagging, and lawful disposal of moldy debris and residues 

  • Cleanup with HEPA filter-equipped vacuums and wipe down with EPA-registered cleaning products

  • Application of EPA-registered antimicrobials to inhibit mold rebound

Attic Mold Growth Prevention 

Professional mold remediation is complete only with the resolution of the moisture issues causing the spores to grow and multiply. During the AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford's mold removal process, you have an opportunity to identify, address, and eliminate the leaks and condensation exposing your attic to damage:

  • Repair roofing components, including sealing joints that permit warmer air to escape and create a melting and refreezing process (ice dams) that let water seep into the attic.

  • Enhance insulation to moderate the temperature differences that result in condensation on interior attic surfaces.

  • Seal openings that direct rising, warm air from living spaces into the cooler attic.

  • Ensure moist air exhausts to the outside, not to the interior of the attic. Check the ductwork in the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry vents, which all need extensions to the outdoors.

  • Seek expert advice on whether your attic's ventilation system is appropriate for its size, and arrange for repairs or upgrades if recommended.
