Mold grows wherever moisture is found. The attic might seem like an unlikely place for mold to grow. Homeowners, however, will sometimes be surprised to find mold growing in their attics.
Attic mold is often the result of poor ventilation in the room. Checking the ventilation will help to eliminate mold growth. For mold that has already started growing, ensuring proper ventilation will keep it from coming back.
Leaky roofs and loose shingles may also contribute to attic mold growth. If your home ventilation setup is good, check for evidence of a leaky roof. It is important to correct the problems that contribute to mold growth.
Attic mold removal requires the same level of care as basement mold removal. In general, it is not a good idea for homeowners to try to remove mold on their own. Mold impacts health. Trying to remove mold on your own increases your risk of exposure.
Surface mold is only the mold that is visible on the surface of materials in your attic. The mold could go much deeper into the building structures. Cleaning the surface with soap and water will not remove the mold. In fact, the mold will just grow back.
