Mold in Attic – Concord, NH

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

Mold is a problem for many people, as it can develop in throughout your house, most commonly in the basement, bathrooms, crawlspaces, or the attic.  Mold in attic is one of the most common locations for Concord, NH homeowners to discover this unwanted inhabitant. The growth develops as a result of the right combination of moisture, a food source and time. Temperature and air flow can also be factors affecting mold growth. Attic mold typically is the result of one of four things: poor attic airflow/ventilation, improperly installed bathroom fan, ice dams or roof leaks.

Early signs and detection of mold in attic

If left unmitigated mold may continue to develop over time, and it not only disrupts the structure of your house, but it can also affect your health.  While mold effects everyone differently, some of the more common effects include coughing, wheezing, nasal stuffiness, and throat, eye, or skin irritation.  Obviously, it is important to understand the potential effects of mold and the procedures one can use to prevent mold from spreading in your house.  Recently a homeowner in Concord, NH suspected she had mold in her attic, so she reached out to a mold testing company to verify if this was true.

Mold remediation estimate

Upon testing her attic and learning that she has mold, the customer contacted Soil-Away (603-641-6555).  Soil-Away is a local mold remediation company whom her neighbor claimed did an exceptional job on her own home.  Her neighbor advised her to call right away to get service before the mold would spread and cause further damage.  Everyone at Soil-Away was friendly and knowledgeable about the mold removal.  The certified estimators were professional when they came to review her property and provide a detailed scope for removing the mold.  The estimators were able to tell her where to start with the removal process and inform her of the best plan to eliminate and prevent mold from reoccurring in her attic.

Process of removing mold from attic

The mold remediation process starts with preventive measures to maximize safety for building occupants and to avoid cross-contamination. Plastic sheathing was put up all around the attic to ensure that the removal and residue dust would not cause a mess.  The specialists set up a negative air machine to ensure that once the removal took place, any residue dust would enter through the HEPA filters and come out as clean air.
After the removal specialists had set up for the mold removal, the customer was impressed at how quickly and efficiently they were able to remove the mold.  They used guns that sprayed dry ice at a high speed that vaporized the mold right off the sheathing.  The dry-ice blasting method made the mold in attic problem disappear. One of the final steps was to HEPA vacuum the entire attic to capture remaining mold spores. The customer praised their work and was amazed at how her attic looked brand new again.  The customer asked to take some business cards, so she could share with her family and friends the great professional work Soil-Away had done.

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.
