Attic Mold Remediation
Attic Mold Remediation Southern New Jersey
Your New Jersey attic can be the perfect environment for serious mold development if you are not careful. Conditions like excessive heat, high humidity, or roof leaks can be an adequate water source for excessive attic mold growth. Attics in South Jersey homes often suffer from poor ventilation and/or poor insulation that can restrict air circulation and allow moisture buildup over time.
If you detect signs of a possible attic mold problem in your New Jersey property, contact a certified mold remediation professional in your South Jersey area who will have the necessary tools, training and experience to safely and effectively address the mold.
Mastertech’s attic mold remediation professionals in NJ can identify if your attic has a mold problem and develop a safe and effective attic mold remediation plan. Following a proper attic mold remediation, it is important for NJ homeowners to implement attic mold preventatives to prevent possible recurrence.
Why do I Have Mold in My New Jersey Attic?
Aside from the obvious roof leak, some moisture problems are not as easy to spot. One reason being that we often do not spend enough time in the attic to notice a problem in its early stages. Another reason being that some moisture problems are seemingly minor and easy to overlook. But, it is important to keep in mind that if you neglect event he most minor of moisture, it can worsen or buildup over time and leave you with serious property damage and widespread attic mold growth.
As hot air rises in your South Jersey home, it collects in your attic. Attics can be very vulnerable to excessive moisture build up if not properly ventilated or if overly insulated. Warm air in the attic can lead to condensation and elevated humidity. Here’s a closer look at some conditions that can cause and sustain attic mold growth:
- Insufficient ventilation
- Excessive heat
- Elevated humidity levels- over 55%
- Unaddressed roof leaks
- Fans and ventilation that empty into the attic rather than outside
Can attic mold make my family sick?
Yes. The effects of mold exposure varies per individual. Mold symptoms range from mild allergic reactions to severe upper respiratory problems. Some individuals may be more sensitive to the effects of mold, while others may not be bothered at all. It all depends on the individual, the species of mold, the length of exposure, and several other factors.
In addition to potential health problems, living in a home with mold is simply unsafe due to the underlying water problems. Where there is mold, there is a water source. Mold and water damage can eat away at your building materials and seriously compromise the structural integrity of your home. That is why attic mold remediation will ALWAYS include moisture control tactics to prevent future problems.
Attic Mold Inspection Process New Jersey
A thorough attic mold inspection in NJ, completed by a trained and certified mold inspector, will determine if you have mold, how bad it is, what caused it, and how to properly fix the problem.
Visual Assessment- Your MasterTech inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis of your NJ attic to identify any conditions that could be causing and sustaining mold growth.
Moisture Mapping- Your attic mold inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas throughout your attic to determine moisture migration patterns and get to the bottom of where the water starts and stops.
Moisture Meters: Moisture meters allow your inspector to read the moisture content of building materials in your attic. Moisture locked within porous building materials like attic sheathing can go unnoticed for a long time.
Thermal Imaging: Your attic mold inspector will use the temperature difference between wet and dry materials as a guide to help determine what areas of the attic are damp, even if dry to the touch. This will allow for a more thorough understanding of the mold growth pattern.
Attic Mold Testing– Surface and/or air quality samples will be collected and analyzed by an accredited laboratory. The lab report will provide scientific data that will determine is there is elevated mold present, the species of mold present, and how to effectively resolve the attic mold issue.
Report of Findings– Your Mastertech inspector will develop a detailed, easy-to-read report that outlines what the inspector did, what he/she found, and what to do next. If deemed necessary, your inspector will present you with a recommended scope of work for attic mold remediation.
Mold is a bio-contaminate that may require immediate professional remediation.
