Is Mold Hiding In Your Attic?
If you are anything like me, the only time you make it up to your attic is during the holidays when you are trying to find the decorations you stored up there a year ago. An attic can be a somewhat scary location where cob webs tend to take over and homeowners tend to avoid. In our experience, 95% of all mold problems in attics go completely unnoticed for a long time due to the fact that most people do not spend any time up there.
Attic mold tends to be discovered during a home inspection when homeowners are getting prepared to put their house on the market, and it is almost always a shocking surprise to find out that your attic has had mold growing in it for who knows how long!
That is why it is very important to be proactive. Don’t be afraid to wander around your attic from time to time to search for signs of mold. Finding mold growth in the early stages makes it far easier to remove and is much cheaper than letting it fester and not taking action.
The approach is simple: if you see visible mold, it should be removed!
