An Answer For Mold Damage In Your Colonial Heights Home

There are a lot of reason for mold to develop in the attic of your Colonial Heights property that you might not be aware of until it is too late.

Mold Damage In Your Home

Many of us assume that mold only occurs in a bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room, somewhere in your home with a regular water source. However, there are a lot of reason for mold to develop in the attic of your Colonial Heights property that you might not be aware of until it is too late.

Heavy rainfall, plumbing issues, and problems with appliances or inadequate maintenance can all cause severe problems in the attic of your Colonial Heights home that often lead to mold damage. Without accessing your attic on a regular basis, it can be easy for things to get out of control, causing structural damage, and leaving corrosion, rot, or mold to thrive.

SERVPRO technicians check more accurate, pinpointed locations for attic problems. Finding the source causing the problem and controlling water in your home is the first step of any mold remediation. With that said, there are some common causes of attic mold that warrant discussion.

A leaky roof can allow water into unprotected areas of your home below including your attic, walls, ceilings, floors, and basement. SERVPRO technicians take roof damage very seriously since even a small amount can wreak havoc on several areas of your home. Water tends to follow the least path of resistance, settling into the lowest area of your home.

Missing or improperly installed insulation can also have a severe impact, allowing moisture into your attic that gets trapped and produces mold. Poor installation can act as a vapor barrier while the wrong kind of insulation results in higher heating and cooling costs. Improper attic ventilation can also trap warm moist air inside, creating the ideal environment for mold to grow.

SERVPRO professionals can perform a full inspection of your attic space and introduce ideas and implement suggestions that give you control over the humidity level in your attic, basement, and home. Many of which improve your indoor living environment while drastically reducing the possibility of mold growth in your home and giving you more of a healthy, clean atmosphere to enjoy.
