High humidity, poor insulation, lack of ventilation, these are the most common causes of mold in a home. The accumulation of snow and ice, strong winds or rainfall are bad weather that can cause damage to your roof and attic. Mold formation is usually found in places that lack ventilation such as basements, attics, laundry rooms and also in walls where there has probably been water infiltration through the roof or due to damaged pipes.
Mold is also very common in the attic. Indeed, your attic can be subject to poor ventilation at the level of the soffits, and this then causes condensation in your attic. They are often created by water infiltration or water vapor. This is a fairly common phenomenon. But, it is important to quickly spot the presence of mold so that you can treat it. In general, the presence of mold is manifested by: unpleasant odors, mold, soil or alcohol; black spots on walls, ceilings and carpets; gondolas at the level of the walls.
Mold is very harmful to health. The spores present in mold cause many health problems for the occupants. They can cause allergies or breathing difficulties. In addition, without decontamination, you may have to deal with structural problems with a collapse of your attic. That is why it is important to get rid of it as soon as possible.
