What to Do When You Find Mold in Your Attic

Published on January 08, 2020

Mold growth in any part of the home is bad news, but in the attic and roof cavity there’s cause for greater concern. While there’s no need to panic, a mold outbreak in the attic will likely require expert mold removal – especially if the scope of the infiltration is widespread.

The attic is actually an ideal environment for mold to grow – it’s dark and damp, and if the attic ventilation is not sufficient, this will allow mold to thrive and spread. Worse still, when mold is left unattended, there could be potential structural damage to the attic and roof.

Attic mold is usually a symptom of the condition of the attic. It must be properly addressed, so that indoor air quality is not negatively affected, and potential health risks are abated. 

With a mold infestation, attic insulation could be affected

For most homeowners, the attic space is left unattended throughout the year. This is not a recommended approach to home maintenance, mainly because potential problems are out-of-sight and, therefore, out-of-mind. That’s why many professionals recommend routine inspection.

An annual attic inspection is the way to spot problem areas ahead of time, and even prevent bigger problems from developing. Water leaks can be identified. Mold growth can be easily seen. And attic insulation can be checked for quality, condition, and possible deterioration. When attic insulation begins to deteriorate, it can result in uneven or uncomfortable home temperatures and increased energy bills to compensate.

If you're unsure about attic mold, seek out a professional

If you suspect mold in the attic, it’s best to have a professional assess the situation. Getting into a DIY approach is not recommended, especially if you don’t have protective wear. More than that, it takes some expertise to determine the source and extent of a mold outbreak.

In a worst-case scenario, there may be a need for attic mold removal and/or insulation removal. This would certainly require professional attention. In Toronto, EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting can inspect your attic, remove any mold, and replace any damaged insulation.

With attic mold, remediation work must be comprehensive – from clean removal, to repairs, to re-installation of new insulation. It’s more than the average homeowner can undertake, and really not worth the potential health risks. In short, it’s best to seek professional help.
