Attic Moisture Can Lead to Mold Growth in Saint Clair Homes

Heavy snowfall on your Saint Clair home can add immense pressure to structural elements like your roof. While these areas of your home get reinforced and strengthened during construction to withstand this added weight throughout the winter months, it is not impossible for your roof to become compromised with persistent pressure on already aging components. Once weak points exist in the roof of your property, moisture can penetrate through the material into the attic. 

Attics throughout the Saint Clair area are a common location for mold to occur.  Without a specific knowledge that your roof has vulnerable points or inadequate insulation in certain areas of the support materials, you might be unaware that this space above the ceiling has become persistently damp. With this added moisture, present mold spores throughout the environment can seat and colonize. 

Our SERVPRO professionals arrive quickly in an emergency to offer you practical solutions designed to prevent the spread of active mold spores to new areas of the property. With many homes installing air circulation equipment in this portion of their property, active mold growth in the area could spread quickly through the HVAC system and affect multiple rooms and areas of your home within a brief period. 

Among the chief concerns with attic mold, is the degradation of critical roof supports as the colony grows and spreads. Our team can provide emergency board up services for the compromised roof as soon as we arrive, and our SERVPRO team can prepare your property for the reconstruction and repair it requires to prevent further moisture penetration that could allow mold colonization to occur continually. 

Taking care of mold in the attic might not be something that every homeowner expects to contend with but dealing with it as quickly as possible can help protect the construction materials and the occupants of your home.
