How does mold grow in your attic?
In the typical home, the conditioned air from the living space is always leaking into the attic through all types of gaps left by builders during the construction. Holes around electric wires and plumbing, or around lighting fixtures, as well as unsealed attic hatches are all areas from where the air that you pay to cool and heat can leak into the attic.
During the wintertime, as heated air leaks into the freezing cold attic, the relative humidity in the air increases and condensation occurs. The wood structures in your attic soak up that moisture creating the perfect breeding ground for mold.
Mold in your attic can compromise the roof structure, and ruin your indoor air making your home smell musty, and exposing your family to harmful mold spores.
As part of the world's largest Attic Insulation network, all of our dealers are fully trained and certified to completely solve mold problems in the attic. That is done by first using our exclusive MoldX II System to kill the mold and prevent it from growing back. We then professionally seal as many gaps as possible to isolate the living area from the unconditioned attic and keep as much heated air as possible from leaking out.
Whether you have mold problems in the attic, or comfort problems throughout the house due to poor attic insulation and air sealing, you are always in good hands with Attic Systems.
