Mold is a living, growing organism that thrives wherever water and moisture are present. The dark, stuffy confined space of an attic may appear to be an unlikely place for the fungus to grow and spread, but it is prime real estate for mold colonies.
Any attic can become quickly infested with mold microorganisms. Conditions such as warm humid air leaking in from the rest of the home, roof leaks, insulation problems, bathroom fans and vents discharging into the attic and poor ventilation provide an ideal source of moisture for mold growth. As most people don’t spend a lot of time in their attics infestations can spread unnoticed for some time.
An attic may well be out of sight, but it shouldn't be out of mind because left unchecked and untreated attic mold can affect your health and cause expensive structural damage.
Mold is an unseen danger that can wreak havoc in an attic. For example:
While you may be able to remove some mold on your own you could make the problem worse. This is a common complication associated with DIY attic mold removal.
If you don’t have the right equipment and don’t remove colonies in the right way, you risk dispersing fungal spores into other parts of your home.
There’s another reason why it might not be a good idea to tackle the problem yourself – attics are dangerous places. Some parts are floored while others are not, and you risk putting your foot through floor joists or worse falling to the room below.
Other booby traps lie in wait such as protruding nails, electrical wires and low hanging rafters.
