Mold in Attic
GET A NO OBLIGATION
In many instances, a homeowner may not notice mold in the attic until it’s actually time for them to sell the house! There have been many instances where our skilled Mold Remediation Contractors have been called to clean up a mold accumulation in an attic that’s been ignored for a very long time. So, there’s not much we haven’t seen when it comes to the attic mold removal process.
Some homeowners are just not sure what to look for when it comes to attic mold. And, since they don’t recognize it, the problem becomes worse and worse over time. One of the easiest things that they could possibly do is simply go up there every now and then and see how stuffy or hot the atmosphere is in the attic. There have been dozens of times where we ourselves have seen that having proper ventilation could have either prevented or ceased a lot of mold from accumulating so badly.
But, one of the worst signs of needing attic mold removal conducted in your home is if you notice wood surfaces that have dark stains on them. Where in many instances moisture is the problem, if you see black or very dark discoloration, the problem has gotten much worse.
There have also been lots of cases where we found that wet insulation in the attic was the root cause of the mold problem up there. This is one that can be stopped if the homeowner would have noticed that the insulation was wet soon enough. But, again, people barely go in their attics, so more than likely they just simply didn’t pay enough attention.
Still, we like to tell homeowners that likely the best way to detect mold is to see if they notice a moldy smell, one that’s musty and strong in that hot, humid attic. It’s very distinguishable, especially in that type of environment. If they do, then it’s time for them to seriously consider attic mold remediation, because they could possibly be putting themselves as well as the rest of the inhabitants of the household at a major health risk.
One of the first ways that they detect that they may have attic mold is because of that thick, musty smell it creates. The homeowner may notice it a little bit at first, and simply ignore it being that the smell will probably just come and go as the temperatures rise and fall in their home.
The truth is folks simply don’t visit their attics all that much, but by the time they open that door to go up there, they’ll definitely see that it was the area where the smell was coming from when that horrible odor hits their nose!
The smell is just one way to detect mold in the attic, and many folks know how it looks on sight. If you notice that the wood surfaces of your attic have become very dark, then that’s likely mold that has developed because of things like not having the proper type of ventilation up there in the attic.
This dark discoloration on the wood surfaces will only get worse if you ignore the problem, so it’s best to call trusted attic mold removal experts such as our experienced contractors at Tulsa Mold Removal Company.
