Do you know what is in your attic? You may have a moldy intruder and not even know it!

Do you have mold in your attic?

Most leaks don’t show themselves for weeks after they have developed. A small leak can do incredible damage if given the time. Molding insulation and rotten rafters are just a couple of the problems you may encounter if you don’t catch a leak early on. Since water usually has to soak into and through insulation before you can see it on your ceiling or walls, having your attic inspected a few times during and after the rainy season can save you hundreds, even thousands, of dollars in repairs.
Another concern that may be discovered in an attic inspection is mildew and black mold built up from inadequate ventilation of the attic space. This is often caused by improper installation of ducting from bathroom fans, kitchen hood vents, and clothes dryer exhaust. All of these ducts carry large amounts of moisture from inside your house to the outside air. If a duct becomes dislodged or was not installed properly in the first place, all that warm, moist air gets pumped into your attic space, creating a perfect environment for molds and mildews to grow. Over time, these organisms can spread into your drywall, releasing spores into the air inside your home. Aside from the repair costs, this condition can seriously affect the health of your family.
