Attic Mold Removal New Jersey
Your New Jersey attic can be the ideal breeding ground for mold. Conditions like excessive heat, high humidity, or roof leaks can provide enough water to cause and sustain mold growth. Attics tend to suffer from ventilation and insulation problems. These problems can obstruct air circulation and allow moisture buildup.
If you detect signs of a potential mold problem in your NJ attic, a certified attic mold removal professional will be able to safely and effectively assist you.
Mastertech’s attic mold removal experts in NJ are trained to identify if your attic has a mold problem and develop a safe and effective attic mold removal solution. Once your attic is clean and safe, we’ll make recommendations for preventing mold from returning in the future.
What Causes Attic Mold in New Jersey?
Aside from the obvious roof leak, moisture buildup in the attic can easily go unnoticed. As hot air rises in your NJ home, it collects in your attic. If an attic is not properly ventilated, it can be very vulnerable to excessive moisture buildup. Warm air in the attic can lead to condensation and elevated humidity.
Conditions that promote attic mold growth:
- Poor ventilation
- Excessive heat
- High humidity – over 55%
- Unaddressed roof leaks
- Fans and ventilation that empty into the attic rather than outside
Can Attic Mold Make My Family Sick?
It is very likely. Mold effects each person differently. Mold symptoms range from mild allergic reactions to severe upper respiratory problems. 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 an attic mold removal plan will ALWAYS include moisture control tactics to prevent future problems.
Attic Mold Inspection Process New Jersey
A thorough attic mold inspection, completed by a professional mold inspector in your NJ area, will determine if mold problem exists, how bad it is, what caused it, and how to properly remedy the mold and the moisture source.
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 inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your attic to determine where the water starts and stops and how many areas it has affected.
Moisture Meters – Your mold inspector will use moisture meters to read the moisture content of building materials in your attic. Moisture locked within porous building materials go unnoticed for a long time.
Thermal Imaging – Thermal imaging cameras are used to detect temperature differences between wet and dry building materials. Your inspector will be able to identify all wet areas and the mold growth pattern.
Attic Mold Testing – Surface and/or air quality samples will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold, how much mold is present and what species of mold are present.
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 necessary, your inspector will present you with a detailed scope of work for a safe and effective attic mold removal.
DIY attic mold removal can be ineffective and dangerous. Widespread attic mold should be removed by a professional.
