2022 Tips to Prevent Mold in Attic Spaces

Mold Restoration

The attic is one area of the home that is very likely to be neglected or ignored. Moisture can build up and create perfect conditions for mold growth. The roof may leak, ventilation may not be sufficient, or appliances, or exhaust fans, may blow hot moist air into the attic. These are some of the most common causes of excessive attic moisture and mold growth. However, with proper care, you can help prevent mold in attic spaces.

During the winter months, microbial issues can often form in the attics of homes due to a lack of proper ventilation or condensation-related problems from high relative humidity and cold surfaces.  Some have installed insulation in soffit vents, which can be a leading factor for microbial growth, as the insulation reduces airflow in the attic, allowing moisture to build up. 

Any mold that’s left unchecked in your home attic space can reproduce, leading to potential structural deterioration of the roof’s plywood sheeting and other structural elements.  Here are a few tips on how to maintain a mold-free attic:
