Why Worry About Attic Mold in Oregon and Southwest Washington?
When mold is found in your attic, the main concern is damage from wood rot and excess moisture. Mold can weaken structural elements of your home like the rafters and roof sheathing.
If you don’t find the source of the moisture in your attic and fix the problem, the situation will only get worse. Another common concern with mold in the home is exposure to airborne mold spores.
It’s best to call a professional as soon as you spot the mold to prevent damage to your home and possible health hazards. To stop attic mold before it surfaces, rely on superior preventive measures including professional air sealing, insulation improvements & controlling attic ventilation by working with Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver.
Solve Attic Mold Issues with Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver
Moist air typically finds its way into your attic from poor ventilation and air leaks. We find that, in most houses, the bathroom vent fan is dumping moist air into the attic rather than outside. If your bathroom vent fan isn’t installed properly, moist air could be dumping into your attic space when you take a shower.
Air leaks around recessed light fixtures, heating vents and other cracks allow warm air to escape into the attic. When this warm air hits the cold underside of the roof deck, the moisture condenses and water drips down the rafters, onto your attic floor and insulation. Wet wood and fiberglass insulation are ideal environments for mold.
To reduce air leaks, our certified home energy specialists will air seal the attic and improve the insulation using our spray foam insulation or our ultra durable SuperAttic insulation. We can also make sure that vents are ducted outside your home and not inside your attic.
