How to Stop Recurring Mold Outbreaks in The Attic

Published on September 22, 2021

Unfortunately, in most residential homes, attics and crawl spaces are often prone to mold infestations. This is because the dark, moist environment is an ideal growth opportunity for mold spores to develop into full blown outbreaks. When mold infiltration occurs, you may require professional attic mold removal to save your attic insulation and improve home air quality.

Once mold has infiltrated into the attic and roof cavity, there’s a good chance for physical damage and potential for negative health effects. And if the mold is recurring, it’s a sure sign that removal and remediation services have been far less than satisfactory.

For expert attic mold remediation in Toronto, it’s essential to choose a reliable and reputable service provider. At EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting, our technicians will do it right the first time, eradicating mold and eliminating the conditions for growth.

Eliminating The Conditions For Mold Growth

Under the right conditions, mold will grow without being seen, and it can spread quickly if not arrested. Mold needs three conditions to thrive – material to feed on – high levels of moisture – and limited airflow. Eliminating those conditions will prevent mold growth.

Attics have the perfect conditions for mold growth. If those conditions are kept in check, there's little chance for mold to grow, but any source of moisture has the potential for an outbreak. It's therefore essential to have the attic expertly inspected on a regular basis.

Regular Attic Inspections can be Valuable

In an effort to avoid the need for attic mold removal, a professional attic inspection in Toronto and the GTA can be valuable in pinpointing vulnerable areas. At EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting, we check all the physical elements of the attic with a focus on identifying areas of mold.

The idea behind a thorough inspection is to find mold growth in the early stages before it becomes an outbreak. EcoComfort also inspects the attic and roof cavity for water leaks, air leaks, and high moisture levels. It's a preventive approach that can be valuable.

Expert Attic Mold Remediation in Toronto    

Stopping a mold outbreak from recurring requires expert mold remediation. Simply put, a deficient remediation will not provide long-term results. Neither will a DIY approach. The fact is, mold remediation must be comprehensive, and the source must be eliminated.

EcoComfort technicians are experts. They know where to look for mold. They know about different mold species. And they know how to effectively remediate. The aim, of course, is to completely eradicate the mold source and eliminate any conditions for re-growth.

Upgrade to Blown-In Celullose for Mold-Resistant Insulation

Once mold remediation has been completed, it may be necessary to top up the existing insulation (or even replace it with new insulation). A good product to consider is blown-in cellulose, mainly because it's both mold resistant and fire-resistant – ideal in the attic.

EcoComfort often recommends blown-in cellulose insulation for the attic. It has proven to be a high-quality product and a cost-effective installation, thus delivering many years of excellent performance. Best of all, indoor comfort is much-enhanced in winter and summer.
