Two members of the Mold Solutions crew arrived at a home in Spring Lake to treat extensive mold growth in the attic. Although mold is more commonly found below-grade in basements and crawl spaces, mold can form anywhere in the home. Mold growth is a consequence of a water intrusion or condensation problem or moisture build-up caused by chronically high indoor humidity levels. As long as there is water or moisture and organic materials, which includes processed wood and other building materials, homeowners can find themselves with a mold problem that needs to be treated, not only to prevent property damage, but to improve indoor air quality and the health of the home’s residents. 

This home had extensive visible mold growth in the attic. The homeowners had belatedly found out that there was absolutely no ventilation their attic space.  And that’s a big problem! During the summer, attics can turn attics into saunas, with temperatures sometimes exceeding 120 or even 130 degrees. Keeping down attic temperatures requires good insulation and air sealing to help block heat transfer into the house. Attics also need fan ventilation supported by natural ventilation — built-in rafter and soffit vents. A common oversight of insulation installers is covering up these vents by mistake, blocking airflow and trapping hot humid air. 

Without proper attic ventilation, moisture that rises up through the structure will condense in the attic, damaging studs and insulation, distorting and deteriorating roof shingles, radiating heat into the living spaces, and if that weren’t enough, trigger mold growth. Prior to our arrival, the homeowners had their roof replaced and had made sure that the attic was being properly ventilated to prevent these problems from reoccurring.

The insulation in this attic was ruined by mold.  After gearing up, we first needed to remove and dispose of the moldy insulation. We prefer to not remove building materials but when they have lost their structural integrity or have been ruined because of mold, like this insulation, the materials have to be removed.

We then proceeded to treat the mold, first with our EPA-registered anti-microbial (MAPS 1), followed by our patented polymer sealant (MAPS 2). This sealant, which is moisture-sensitive, will prevent the return of any new mold growth in treated areas. Last, we installed our TAP cellulose blown-in insulation to replace the ruined insulation. The homeowners will find this insulation to be a marked improvement over what they had, and it will save them money over the years on their heating and cooling bills. 

The photos show the attic before and after all of our work. As you can see, these homeowners now enjoy an attic that is free of mold. They were quite pleased with our work, and it’s always a good feeling to complete a job that’s done right and is appreciated by the customer.
