Cause & Risks of Attic Mold
Moisture in your home’s attic comes from excessive moisture and can be present due to roof leaks, faulty pipes or poorly installed ventilation.
- Roof Leaks: You can track some roof leaks by checking for discoloration around your insulation, wood beams, roof valleys, skylights or window frames
- Ventilation: Never cover any vents in your home to ensure ventilation is accessible. You need proper ventilation in your attic since air inside your home travels upwards.
