Mold doesn’t have to be a permanent problem.
Many people think that if their home’s roof is in great shape, mold growth in their attic is not going to occur. The reality is that other attic moisture problems can also make an ideal environment for mold growth. Here at AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central, we handle mold issues whether because of a roof issue or another cause.
Mold needs two things to grow: moisture and a viable food source. Although your fiberglass-based insulation isn’t tasty for mold, it can grow on other surfaces such as roof sheathing, rafters and trusses and even cause damage to them. A common cause for mold in attic spaces is inadequate ventilation and insulation which has allowed warm air to condense in the unheated attic space and not have the chance to quickly dry. If you have vents and exhaust fans that pump into the attic instead of outside the home, this can also cause moisture. Insulation that has been improperly installed is another potential cause for mold in attics.
