Attic and Basement Mold Removal in Sellersburg, IN

Attic and Basement Mold Removal in the Louisville, KY, Area

Mold loves attics and basements. Why? Because mold only needs two ingredients to grow – mold spores and moisture – and attics and basements have plenty of both. Mold spores stay pretty harmless on their own, but once they get exposed to moisture, they turn into full-fledged mold. Basements can pull mold spores and moisture up from the ground, and attics can pull them from the air surrounding the house and from your HVAC system. Combine these conditions with the high humidity in our area, and your attic and basement become the perfect breeding grounds for mold. Don't despair, though. ANR Restoration is here to help.

Mold in the Attic, Too?

Most people aren't surprised to find mold in their basement. However, many people are amazed to find if there's mold in the basement, there's probably mold in the attic, too. People tend to see the attic as the opposite of the basement. If the basement is cool and damp, then the attic must be warm and dry. However, that's not always the case. A lot of different factors can make an attic just as moldy as a basement. For example, your ventilation system might not be working as well as you think it is. When your attic vents can't release moisture into the air, that moisture gets stuck. By the way, if your heating and cooling bills have gotten a bit high recently, you should probably check your attic for mold. The higher bills may be a sign of poor ventilation.

Of the rooms in your house, the attic has the least amount of protection against the elements. When temperatures shift and cause condensation or moisture, your attic will face the consequences. Other elements can lead to a moldy attic, too. For example, mold may be using your attic insulation as a food source. Furthermore, attics tend to be dark, which is the kind of environment that mold prefers.

What Makes Mold Challenging

On our mold remediation page, we discussed some of the issues that make mold particularly challenging. First, mold remediation does not work unless you get rid of every last bit of it. Mold generates more mold. If you leave even the tiniest bit of it behind, it has enough of itself left to continue growing. Second, the fact that mold hides in dark places makes it especially challenging. It tends to stick to corners and other places that are hard to clean. You can't clean what you can't see, and even when you do see it, you often need specific tools to get the job done the right way.

Attic and basement mold adds some extra challenges into the mix. First, these rooms are full of those dark corners and hiding places mentioned above. Second, rainwater and other weather elements get into these rooms more easily than other rooms. Third, when your HVAC system is in your attic or basement, it can blow mold spores into the rest of your home.

Finally, the biggest problem comes from the fact that people don't spend a lot of time in their attics and basements. Think about it. You notice mold right away when it shows up in your bathroom because you use that room every day. You spray with a mold-killing cleaning product and then move on. When mold sprouts in your attic or basement, however, you won't see it, so you won't get rid of it. As a result, that mold will grow until you finally do venture into the room. By that point, you already have a major problem on your hands.

Why You Must Remove Mold Now

Once you discover mold in your attic or basement, you should hire a professional to get rid of it right away. Mold causes health problems, especially for those who are allergic or sensitive to it. Some of those health problems include the following:

  • Worsening asthma
  • Dizziness
  • Itchy eyes
  • Headaches
  • Rashes
  • Worsening of other health conditions

If you or someone in your family has complained about any of these things, attic and basement mold may be the problem.

Furthermore, this mold, as we mentioned, won't quit growing until you get rid of all of it. Eventually, mold will spread from the attic or basement into the rest of your house if you don't remove it quickly. Sometimes, when mold buries itself too deeply into a structure, we have to tear the structure down and rebuild it completely. This process is far more challenging for attics and basements than it is for other areas of the house. It's best to take care of the problem before it reaches that point.
