As we make our way through winter, it is important to keep up with your home maintenance, especially when it comes to mold prevention and mold remediation services. One commonplace mold thrives during the winter is the attic ceiling.
This article will provide you information on attic ceiling mold and the importance of attic mold remediation services.
In an attic the types of mold and the mold severity varies. To maintain the integrity of your home, mold remediation services must be performed.
How is attic mold corrected?
- Proper ventilation must be designed for the attic.
- Roof flashing leaks must be repaired and prevented.
- Proper insulation must be present.
These steps are crucial to complete in the wintertime because the majority of attic molds develop, thrive and expand during the wintertime rather than the summertime. This happens because chrysophile mold, cladosporium mold (attic black mold on damp attic ceilings), and aspergillus mold found in attics can grow at temperatures as low as 20 degrees when average household mold grows between 40 and 90-degree temperatures.
The home loses heat in the unheated attic space, which is why these molds thrive during the winter. If the attic has no proper ventilation system, attic mold quickly grow.
To get attic mold under control, you will need attic mold remediation treatments. Mold spores grow rapidly with one mold spore having the potential to develop over 12 million spores within a 12-hour time span.
Attic mold will feed on your attic ceiling sheathing and ceiling joists until there is no stable structure.
