What causes attic mold in Pennsylvania?
Aside from the obvious roof leak, some moisture problems are not as easy to spot. Moisture buildup in the attic can easily go unnoticed. As hot air rises in your eastern PA home, it collects in your attic. Attics can be very vulnerable to excessive moisture build up if not properly ventilated. Warm air in the attic can lead to condensation and elevated humidity.
Conditions that promote attic mold growth:
- Insufficient ventilation
- Excessive heat
- Elevated humidity levels- over 55%
- Unaddressed roof leaks
- Fans and ventilation that empty into the attic rather than outside
The Risks Involved with Mold
Yes. The effects of mold exposure varies per individual. Mold symptoms range from mild allergic reactions to severe upper respiratory problems. Some individuals may be more sensitive to the effects of mold, while others may not be bothered at all. It all depends on the individual, the species of mold, the length of exposure, and several other factors.
In addition to potential health problems, living in a home with mold is simply unsafe due to the underlying water problems. Where there is mold, there is a water source. Mold and water damage can eat away at your building materials and seriously compromise the structural integrity of your home. That is why attic mold remediation will ALWAYS include moisture control tactics to prevent future problems.
Attic Mold Inspection Process Eastern PA
A thorough attic mold inspection in Eastern PA, completed by a professional, will determine if you have mold, how bad it is, what caused it, and how to properly fix the problem.
Visual Assessment– Your Mastertech inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis of your Eastern PA attic to identify any conditions that could be causing and sustaining mold growth. Every mold inspection will be digitally documented.
Moisture Mapping– Your inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your attic to determine moisture migration patterns and get to the bottom of where the water starts and stops.
Moisture Meters: Moisture meters allow your inspector to read the moisture content of building materials in your attic. Moisture locked within porous building materials like foundation walls can go unnoticed for a long time.
Thermal Imaging: Your mold inspector will be taking advantage of the temperature difference between wet and dry materials. Thermal imaging will allow your inspector to clearly identify all wet areas. This will allow for a more thorough understanding of the mold growth pattern.
Attic Mold Testing– Surface and/or air quality tests will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold. If mold is confirmed in your attic, the test results will help your inspector figure out the most appropriate course of action to resolve the mold issue.
Report of Findings– Your Mastertech inspector will develop a detailed, easy-to-read report that outlines what the inspector did, what he/she found, and what to do next. If deemed necessary, your inspector will present you with a detailed scope of work for a safe and effective attic mold remediation.
