Insulation Helps Prevent Mold Remediation for Colorado Springs Attic-- SERVPRO TIp--Keep the Moisture Out

Moisture Invites Mold Growth in Colorado Springs Area Homes

Colorado Springs is known for some of the harshest of winter conditions resulting in heavy snowfall throughout certain times of the year. While many homeowners in the area have remained focused on preventing significant incidents to the structure of their home following severe weather, many people do not realize how dense snow can affect their home in other ways.
Improper insulation of your roof can lead to mold damage in the attic of your Colorado Springs home. The production of this mold is not difficult once the moisture and temperature requirements reach appropriate levels. With the attic being the hottest place in your house throughout the year and improper roof insulation warming snow on the roof in spots, moisture and heat have the opportunity to connect with spores present to form fungal colonies on the wood and drywall of this area.
There are numerous sites online that might convince you to attempt to remove mold that you find via DIY cleaning solutions and methods, but these are rarely as effective as they might seem. SERVPRO remediation specialists undergo extensive training via standards from the IICRC to become well versed in all varieties of mold and the proper method of destroying colonies and limiting further growth.
As you might notice once our SERVPRO certified technicians arrive at your home, we get dressed entirely in protective gear to prevent exposure to spores in the air. Mold can cause health effects, and as such, should be dealt with quickly by specialists who know what they are doing.
Our team utilizes scrubbers fitted with HEPA filters in combination with negative air chambers to contain mold spores as thorough removal of the fungal hyphae of each present colony is underway. Using thermal imagery, our experienced remediation specialists can identify the weak points in your roof insulation to prevent future moisture in the area needed to create new colonies.
Finding mold in your attic should be a clear indication that something is amiss with the moisture levels in your house, and could indicate issues with the construction of your roof. Trust the certified specialists of SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes to help you take back your attic. Our team can be reached 24/7 at (719) 434-4626.
