How Often Should You Check on Your Attic?

Published on November 04, 2022

After 20 years, most attic insulation in Toronto begins to deteriorate, losing its effectiveness due to age. But, even before that, external factors can accelerate the aging of attic insulation, leaving property owners with poor air quality, mold infestations, expensive utility bills, and challenges regulating indoor temperatures. To get ahead of trouble with your insulation, professional attic inspections in Toronto are recommended. 

At EcoComfort, our team of professionals recommends regular attic inspections to ensure that your attic is up to par before further damage occurs, such as structural damage, mold infestations, water leaks, or pests in your home. With years of first-hand experience, EcoComfort provides property owners with high-quality and safe attic insulation solutions in Toronto and the surrounding areas.

Here’s how often you should check your attic and what to look for.

How Often Should You Check Your Attic Insulation?

Signs You Need an Attic Inspection

Attic Roof Leaks: Attic roof leaks typically occur for several reasons, including ice dams, worn sealants, or harsh weather conditions. If you notice water stains, bubbling or peeling paint around your property, missing/damaged shingles on the roof, or a strong, musty odour indoors, it’s time to contact a professional attic specialist to check your attic insulation in Toronto. 

Pest Infestation: Pests are a burden to deal with and can wreak havoc on your attic insulation in Toronto. From droppings to nesting, pests in your attic are a concern and should be addressed immediately. Before reaching out to a professional attic insulation company, contact pest control to evict your unwanted guests. Once all pests are removed, the professionals at EcoComfort will assist with the attic insulation removal and installing blown-in cellulose insulation, so you can realize greater energy efficiency at home. 

Mold Growth: Attic roof leaks that go unnoticed almost always lead to mold in the attic because mold spores require three primary conditions (moisture, organic materials, and minimal ventilation) to reproduce, which the attic produces in abundance. Mold in the attic is difficult to spot visibly. The best indicator that there is a problem to begin with, is the pungent odour it releases. If you notice a new earth smell you can’t place, contact EcoComfort to schedule an attic inspection and attic mold remediation if necessary. 

At EcoComfort, we provide a detailed approach to attic mold remediation. Our team of experts thoroughly inspects your attic, tests mold samples when needed, and provides safe removal and disposal of contaminated insulation materials.
