Causes of mould in the attic
water damage and excessive humidity cause mold and it’s no different in the attic. Most of the time, condensation occurs in your attic due to ventilation problems that in turn cause leakage and moisture. This causes mold, wood rot and water damage inside. Over time, mold develops and if left untreated, it becomes a big problem if left untreated.
The image below illustrates the problem on the right, with the ideal house on the left.
Each house was built with a specific roof ventilation calculation to ensure adequate ventilation. Sometimes homeowners will add new features to the home, such as installing drains in the bathroom or improving insulation. These changes will affect air circulation and create moisture so that attic mold starts to rot the sheet metal on your roof.

Attic mould is the cause of a breakdown of the attic, depending on how easily it can be corrected and restore the wood to a new state.

What if I don’t remove mold from the attic?
The mould of the attic is the effect of condensation of the attic (excessive humidity). Over the years, mould will break down the roof sheet from the inside, causing ripples on the wood (the roof will no longer deform straight) and premature wear of the shingles. Most roofers when replacing shingles describe it as the softness of the wood when they walk, as they cannot see mold growth on the opposite side of the sheet. It is difficult to sell or obtain insurance for any home that contains mold, we advise you to remove it as soon as possible.
