Reasons why mold is found in attics

There are several reasons why mold contaminates your attic. This toxic element is in your premises because of a leak that comes from the roof or windows. On the other hand, this set of tiny fungi makes its appearance when the living spaces of a house are poorly ventilated. Indeed, poor oxygenation of the bathroom or kitchen can lead to such a complication.

In this circumstance, moist and warm air from these rooms rises to the attic, mixing with the cold air present there in winter. This fusion causes the proliferation of mold on the walls and other surfaces of the attic. The presence of leaks under the shingles can also be the cause of this problem. In addition, when a home does not have good insulation, in this case, mold will also appear inside the attic.

Steps to decontaminate the attic

To remove mold in attics, it is possible to clean them yourself. But this is not enough to eliminate them professionally. In reality, for their disappearance to be effective, it is first necessary to solve the problem of humidity in the room. Therefore, the first thing to do is to correct the leak in the roof, windows or shingles as well as the ventilation problem. After carrying out this work, we can begin the decontamination of the attic. In case the room is used as a storage area, it is important to check each contents of the boxes to confirm the presence or absence of mold.

If some containers are affected by mold, then we throw them in the trash. The objects attacked by mold are then cleaned by us. Even if we do not notice any traces of musty and we smell its smell, we carry out a complete cleaning. While we are doing the attic decontamination, no one should access the room. We therefore keep it closed throughout the remediation process. With the intention of preventing a new appearance of this toxic substance, we apply mold inhibitory solutions to the attic sheath.
