AdvantaClean Experts Offer Mold Cleaning for Attics

Did you know that attics are one of the most common areas in the home for mold growth? Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of this, and the mold problem can grow unnoticed for years. The warm, moist conditions of the attic, coupled with a plentiful food source in the form of wood sheathing, create the perfect environment for mold to thrive. To make matters worse, the soffit/eave vents in attics are often obstructed with insulation, which can ruin the entire passive ventilation system. 

How Does Mold Form in Your Attic?

Mold removal in Greenwich homes is more common than many property owners think. Contractors formed your house with organic materials, an attractive food source for spreading mold spores. Specific conditions create likely scenarios where mold can develop in this enclosed attic space:

  • Ventilation Concerns

Lousy ventilation can be a significant contributor to mold developing in the attic. Trapped moisture that cannot escape finds surfaces like exposed trusses and insulation to absorb into and become alluring locations for mold development. One of the ways that our AdvantaClean team helps with long-term mold solutions is to ensure proper ventilation of your attic space after cleanup.

  • Insufficient Insulating Materials

If your home's insulation is damaged, missing, or improperly installed, it could be an open invitation for moisture to seep in and cause mold growth. Even if you don't see mold growth in your attic, a musty smell could indicate mold lurking deep in your insulation. 

  • Appliances or Rooms Exhausting to Attic

When your bathroom fan fails, it can discharge moist air into the attic. This airflow breakdown can lead to excess moisture accumulation, creating the perfect environment for mold growth. Unfortunately, it often goes unnoticed until it is too late.

Our team at AdvantaClean is here to help you overcome the threat of attic mold. We are known as the leaders in New York mold remediation and recovery solutions. As soon as you give us a call, we will be at your doorstep resolving the moisture concerns in your attic space. Our team of experts will use high-velocity air movers, portable heaters, and dehumidification instrumentation to dry up your attic and create an environment that's not favorable for mold growth. 

Cleaning Up After Drying

Our first step is to attack surface mold with our powerful cleaning products, which can make a big difference when caught early on. For more challenging infestations that have spread to multiple surfaces, we may need to choose more aggressive measures with sandblasting or dry ice blasting to get to the root of the problem. We closely monitor our remediation efforts to ensure we take the proper steps to tackle the issue. 

Did you know that mold can feed on organic materials like the roof's underlayment and exposed trusses? Unfortunately, this can lead to their damage and the need for costly repairs. But that is not all - if left unchecked, mold can also cause water damage to your home's exterior envelope and sensitive attic space. That is why our team of licensed and certified contractors can provide comprehensive remediation services to address these issues through necessary repairs to keep your family safe.
