    How to Spot Mold

    If you don’t check your attic or crawl space often, here are some of the first warning signs you should know to check if you have mold in your home:

    • Decayed odor
    • Damaged plumbing pipes
    • Poor air quality indoors
    • Wet or damaged insulation
    • Cable or wiring issues
    • Warped or buckled floorboards
    • Overpriced energy bills
    • Chronic allergies
    • Ongoing headaches
    • Worsening asthma

    What Concerns Professionals About Mold

    • Black Mold

      Black mold is extremely toxic. It forms in damp and moist areas and feeds on organic materials like wood, carpet, drywall, and insulation. It is also known as Stachybotrys.

      Black mold can cause multiple health issues which can cause breathing difficulties, fatigue, persistent coughing, nose bleeds, constant headaches, and if the conditions are bad enough, it can cause neurological issues for children and pulmonary bleeding in infants.

    • White Mold

      While white mold is common in attics and crawl spaces, it can often be mistaken for mildew. It is a fungus that blossoms in moist environments.

      White mold causes health issues such as headaches, eye irritation, respiratory concerns, and dizziness. If a mold infestation becomes larger than three square feet or does not remove easily, you need immediately to  contact a mold remediation professional.

    What Causes Mold to Grow?

    Mold grows in darkness and if there is any moisture in your attic or crawl space. Although it doesn’t rain like other states in Southern California, there is more moisture in the air than normal due to the proximity to the beaches, giving your attic and crawl space the perfect breeding grounds for mold.

    Mold In The Attic

    • A leaking roof or a roof sheathing can bring in unnecessary moisture. This leads to condensation mold in the attics and eventually to severe issues that can require heavy-duty mold remediation.

    • Another way mold can get into your attic is through inadequate insulation. If you have inadequate insulation around your ceiling, it will allow warm air to rise into your attic. This can also lead to unwanted moisture and encourages the growth of mold.

    Mold In Crawl Spaces

    • Standing water, plumbing issues, or drainage problems should be addressed immediately or else the mold will thrive in these environments. It will be harder to remove the moisture if the standing water is not removed in a timely manner.

    • When there is wet soil or moisture from dirt evaporation, the moisture increases the potential for mold to grow. If this happens, Attic Projects contractors will install a new vapor barrier to go across the soil and lower walls of your crawl space to keep it dry.

    Be Proactive About Mold in Your Home

    Ever heard the saying “I’d rather be proactive than reactive”? Well, this is one of those situations. If you have mold in your home that remains unchecked, it will continue to grow as the spores reproduce and create a bigger problem. The bigger the problem, the more expensive the project will be later on.

    Not only is mold unsafe for your family, but it can cause lasting damage to your home.

    How We Eliminate the Source of Mold

    The Process of Our Mold Remediation 

    • Locate the mold. We will go into the hidden areas of your attic or crawl space, meaning behind walls, the drywall, inside the insulation, and under the floorboards to ensure that there is no mold in hiding.
    • Make sure the area is dry. Next is drying out the area with dehumidifiers and high-grade fan systems to rid it of any moisture and humidity. If there is any standing water, that will be removed as well.
    • Commercial Grade Cleaners. After thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing the area, we apply a fungicide product on the remaining items and materials in your attic or crawl space. We will remove airborne spores and then treat the remaining areas with a professional mold remover.
    • Throw Out Moldy Debris. For items such as drywall, insulation, and other materials that could not be cleaned, we will dispose of them carefully while wearing the proper safety equipment. This ensures the safety of your family as well.
    • Seal the Area. Mold spores can spread through the air. Before we begin the work, we use plastic sheets and tape to seal the vents and other passageways to your home to prevent the spread of mold in other areas. 
    • Properly Add Ventilation. We will inspect your HVAC system for leaks and make sure that the roof vents are not being blocked. The attic will also need to be properly sealed. We make sure that the vent and dryer fans are ducted outside and that everything is ventilated. We can also add new insulation to eliminate any future air leakage.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How do I know if I have mold in my attic?

    If you have mold in your attic, you may notice poor air quality in your home, wet or damaged insulation, electrical wiring issues, high utility bills, musty odors, broken pipes, warped floorboards, or have developed health issues.

    What are the most common molds in attics?

    Black mold and white mold are the most common molds found in attics. They are also our main concern. Although there are other types of mold, and we remove and sanitize all molds in your attic, these two can cause the most health concerns in the least amount of time.

    My home is new… How can there be mold in my attic/crawl space?

    Mold can grow in a ton of different environments. Your crawl space may have been overlooked, and a leak could have trapped moisture inside. Wet soil can also cause mold in your crawl space. Insulation in the attic can also cause mold growth. It is best to contact a professional to inspect your home if you suspect there is mold growing.

    Do you sanitize the area once the mold is removed?

    Yes! When the mold is removed, our professionals then sanitize the entire area. The only way to truly get rid of mold is to clean and dry every area, so there is no environment for the mold to grow.
