Have you noticed a strange, foul, musty odour lingering in your home?
You might need professional mold remediation for your attic.
Mold grows around us as part of the natural environment, so it’s no surprise that it can enter our homes. The big problem for homeowners is that mold grows and spreads without being seen or noticed. And this is particularly evident in the attic, where we rarely venture.
With the right conditions, mold will grow and spread quite quickly. Typically, there are three elements required for mold to thrive: air moisture, organic feeding materials, and little air movement. The attic provides the perfect environment for mold to infiltrate that space.
The best way to check for mold and the best way to adopt a preventative approach is to have a professional attic inspection in Burlington. In this way, attic ventilation can be assessed, moisture levels can be checked, and various retrofits can be recommended.
When stale, musty odours are noticeable from the attic, it’s possible that mold is already growing. On inspection, there may be black stains on the attic wood, indicating that the mold has started to feed. In a worst-case situation, a serious mold outbreak will have established and grown in the attic insulation.
While mold can certainly cause structural damage in the attic, there are also possible health risks, particularly for elderly people and young children living in the home. Health symptoms vary, but by any definition, it's not a good option to be living (and breathing) with mold infiltrating throughout the attic.
When mold is discovered, there’s always a cause. That’s why professional remediation is preferred – to identify the cause and source of the mold outbreak. At EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting, our aim is to pinpoint the mold source, determine the extent of the outbreak, and recommend a solution.
Our trained technicians begin with a comprehensive inspection of the attic, followed by mold testing when required. Then it’s time for the safe removal and disposal of the mold. For mold remediation in Burlington, homeowners can count on the most comprehensive approach from EcoComfort.
