MOLD IN YOUR ATTIC?
Attic mold is often the result of moisture that builds up in the attic. Moisture from living spaces below will rise to the attic. If the attic is not properly ventilated the moisture collects on attic surfaces creating an ideal environment for mold growth.
Mold spores are commonly found in the environment including household dusts. Mold growth occurs when spores are exposed to moisture, fuel, and consistent temperatures. Even the smallest amount of organic material can fuel mold growth.
Mold spores can impact indoor air quality and be particularly challenging for occupants with allergies, asthma, auto-immune diseases, or other health issues. Some species of mold can be hazardous to all occupants.
There are thousands of known mold species. It is impossible to identify most mold species by the naked eye. Precise identification of mold is typically done by a certified laboratory.
