Attic Mold is More Common to Colorado Springs Homes Than You Might Think

3/25/2018 (Permalink)

If you see or smell mold in your home, contact SERVPRO to investigate the source and to remediate the damage. Mold could be hiding in your attic.

SERVPRO Technicians Know That Mold can Reside in Many Parts of Your Home Including the Attic

Even with the seasons changing to what could arguably more favorable weather in the spring and summer months, your Colorado Springs home might still feel the effects of a long winter in places like your attic. With heavier snowfalls on aging roofs, the irregular wear can leave spots that are improperly insulated and weakened, allowing moisture to penetrate more easily. This stream of moisture into one of the warmest places in your house (regardless of the season) meets the requirements for mold growth.  
Since most homeowners do not regularly check their attic for mold damage in Colorado Springs, this problem could potentially persist for quite some time before it comes to someone’s attention. While the advisable thing would be to make it a point to check on the condition of your attic on a regular basis, this is often easier said than done. If mold has already started to grow and thrive in this region of your home, professional remediation services are what you require.  
Mold is well known to potentially cause health effects to those that encounter it, which makes it something that you should handle quickly. Our SERVPRO remediation specialists get uniquely trained in the latest restoration and removal techniques for all varieties of mold, as well as using the proper protective equipment and methods of preventing the spread of active spores to new areas of your home.  
When our experienced team of IICRC-certified technicians arrives at your home, our priority is sectioning off this area of your home to prevent the spread of spores to new regions. With so many air circulation equipment getting run through or centered in the attic area, this equipment must get turned off through the entire remediation process. Negative air chambers and air scrubbers get used to contain active spores while the affected surfaces are deeply cleaned to remove the colonies.  
While this is just a small piece of the greater remediation project, it goes to show that when you choose SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes, you are making the right choice. Our specialists can handle any mold damage situation you might have, and get your home back to the way it used to be. Give us a call today at (719) 434-4626.
