Attic mold remediation is a very real possibility in Colorado Springs, due to the excessive hail damage we get to our roofs. The attic above your home needs dry air and properly controlled ventilation. To avoid wood rot and black mold growth, the moisture in the air needs to be monitored and controlled because continuous high humidity levels are the prefect environments for mold and mildew. Unfortunately, they are also one of the main contributors to indoor allergens, mold, rot, insects, and that “musty odor”. A healthy, dry attic is important to the health of the building and the people. Simple air movement and dehumidification of the attic will not remove the growth of mold and mildew.Check out our blog on mold cost
How to hire a certified attic mold removal company
When hiring an attic mold removal company you want to make sure the contractor you hire is properly certified and insured. At AmeriDri we are happy to give you a copy of all our certifications and proof of pollution insurance. Regular liability insurance does not protect you, the homeowner or business owner from negligent damages that the contractor caused during the mitigation process. Only mold contractor pollution insurance protects you against damages caused by the contractor.
Inspect your home yearly to prevent expensive structural repairs from mold growth
It is important that you address the mold issues before it gets worse and the repairs become more expensive with time, to prevent common structural repairs such as wood root, roof damage, downspouts, blocked gable openings, clogged gutters, bathroom vent pipes that are broken and inspecting the insulation if its old or misplaced. In some cases scrubbing the decking, roof joists and applying OXYPAR-DC, which is a non-toxic, non-VOC’s, and Biodegradable cleaning agent, sealing the attic with MaxGuard is all that is needed which is a EPA registered antimicrobial sealer. We will identify additional contributors to water, mold growth, poor ventilation or moisture issues at your home or business.
