Attic Mold Remediation

8/11/2017 (Permalink)

Attic mold grows on roof sheathing in attics when warm air from the house gets trapped in the attic due to inadequate insulation or insufficient ventilation (not enough soffit and/or ridge venting). When it gets cold outside, the temperature of the roof sheathing drops below the dew point causing moisture to form on the sheathing. This combination of moisture and wood provides the perfect setting for attic mold growth. Attic mold starts as a white or gray fuzzy growth and can spread quickly. During the coldest part of winter or hottest part of summer, it goes dormant and turns black. When optimal growing conditions return, the dormant mold will come alive again and start growing and spreading.
