Attic mold


Here to Remove and Eliminate Mold in Your Attic

Your attic is one of the most common areas in your home where you can find mold growth. An attic is typically humid and hot, and the wood sheathing serves as an abundant food source, thus making the attic perfect for mold growth. Moreover, most homeowners rarely go up to the attic, which can allow the attic mold problem to grow undisturbed for years. As a result, you can experience deterioration of structural roof elements and attic sheathing. The longer you wait to address a mold issue, the more expensive the remediation and repairs become.


If you are experiencing any of the following signs, you likely have a mold problem on your hands.

  • Stains on wood surfaces: If you find black stains on the wood in your attic, then it is a clear indication that you have an attic mold problem.
  • Wet insulation in the attic: This is not the only sign that there may be an attic mold issue, but when insulation gets wet, its capacity to insulate reduces significantly, thus increasing the cost to heat/cool your home.
  • Smell of mildew in the attic: If you find a moldy or musty smell in your attic, it means that there is a moisture problem somewhere.

An attic mold problem can be easily avoided by checking your attic periodically for mold and dealing with it promptly when you do find a problem. Our attic mold remediation experts have dealt with extremely difficult attic mold projects and have the required expertise to get rid of attic mold easily.


Homeowners not only want to get rid of attic mold but also want to know the reason for its growth. Finding the root cause of the attic mold problem is the most vital step in the mold remediation process. The following are some of the common causes of attic mold:

  • Roof leakage
  • Poor ventilation
  • Incorrect or poor ventilation from the home’s kitchen, bathrooms, or clothes dryer
  • Poorly installed insulation or insufficient insulation
  • Siding or window leakage

When there is insufficient ventilation or incorrect vent installation in your home, the moist, warm air from your kitchen, clothes dryer, and bathroom will rise up into the attic. This warm air mixes with the cooler attic air, thus creating a condensation issue that can result in mold.


It is not possible to get rid of attic mold completely if the moisture problem is not corrected first. You can clean up the physical evidence of mold, but if the moisture problem is not addressed, the mold will surely return.

If you have mold growth under the attic sheathing, particularly if your attic space is sloped, it can be quite difficult to clean the mold due to space limitations. While working in an unfinished attic, you will have to deal with extreme temperatures in addition to several other problems.

In a finished attic, it can be extremely difficult to find the cause of the attic mold problem or look for hidden mold living behind insulation and drywall. It is because of these reasons that it is best to call professionals for attic mold removal.


After the ventilation system has been repaired or the roof leakage has been fixed, the attic mold remediation process can begin. If your attic is used as a storage space, you will need to inspect and remove all the boxes to find out the extent of damage caused by the mold. Boxes affected by mold will have to be discarded, and all the items that have a musty smell or are affected by mold will need to be professionally cleaned.

The attic mold cleaning process may include disinfecting moldy areas, using powerful cleaning agents, and a thorough drying of the area to prevent any future attic mold growth. Powerful anti-fungal sealers may have to be sprayed onto attic sheathing to deter any additional attic mold development. However, before attempting to tackle the attic mold problem yourself, it is advisable to talk to a professional.


If you have an attic mold problem, call us today and our trusted professionals will take care of it for you. They have the experience, equipment and training to access the situation thoroughly and devise a suitable attic mold remediation plan that will get rid of your attic mold quickly and efficiently.
