Attic Mold in Spring

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in , , .

Mold- a homeowner’s enemy in the springtime. Because of the combination of snow melting, rain falling, and temperatures rising, spring is one of mold’s favorite seasons. Your attic is one of the most humid areas in your home and the perfect feeding grounds for mold. The moisture and darkness in your attic are some of the best environments for mold.

To prevent mold growth in your attic this spring, be sure to follow along for expert tips from the remediation specialists at Soil-Away!

What is Mold?

Mold is an invasive fungus that grows in damp places like attics. Every spring, when days get longer, and the weather gets warmer, spring mold issues arrive. Mold can cause minor to severe health issues depending on how long it is living in your home, from allergies to dangerous reactions to long-lasting conditions. 

How to Prevent Mold

Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prevent mold growth in your attic this spring. 

Control Moisture in Your Attic

Make sure that your attic is set up with correct ventilation system that allows air to properly circulate through the space. Attics are supposed to breath, which allows for humidity to escape and not build up leading to mold issues. If the venting is not enough, it may be in your best interest to hire an electrician to install a power vent fan with humidistat control. These fans will run when the humidity is elevated and exhaust the unwanted humidity from attic space. 

Check for Roof Leaks

After the rain, make sure to go up and check on the space to ensure no water is left there to sit. Water in your attic can very well be a sign of rook leaks, and this water is simply waiting for mold to grow around it. 

Proper Insulation

Attic insulation controls the temperature and moisture levels. Ensure that your attic floor is well insulated to avoid the air transfer between the main living area and the attic space. Insulation in every other room in your home should be all in good shape as well. 

How to Get Rid of Mold in Your Attic

Mold can be highly hazardous, and clean-up should not be taken lightly. It is recommended to always seek professional help, like from the remediation experts at Soil-Away, any time you are dealing with mold growth in your home.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
