MOLD GROWTH
AGAIN ?

Attic Mold re-growth is common if the cause is not treated!

Attic mold can re-grow on the attic sheathing ( underside of the roof deck ) of a treated surface is the cause of the mold is not treated. 

Humidity contributing
To mold in your home.

  1. Sometimes, humidity or dampness (water vapor) in the air can supply enough moisture for mold growth. Indoor relative humidity (RH) should be kept below 60 percent — ideally between 30 percent and 50 percent, if possible. Low humidity may also discourage pests (such as cockroaches) and dust mites.

    Humidity levels can rise in a building as a result of the use of:

    • Humidifiers
    • Steam radiators
    • Moisture-generating appliances such as dryers
    • Combustion appliances such as stoves
    • showers 
    • heat escape from the attic floor to roof deck 

     

  2. Heat escape from the living space is a big contributor to mold growth as a result of cold air from the soffits or roof vents  hitting warm air from the living space that leaked out through the attic floor seams. This is evident from the exterior when icicles are present. Often the attic sheathing ( roof deck ) will  have mold, why? because the heat escape from the living space is creating both condensation and warming of the roof deck. 

Ventilation
For Attic Mold Prevention

In addition to proper insulation levels, and air tight attic floor, in the attic, when passive power fan ventilation which is thermostat controlled does not remove excess heat escape from the living space the heat will prematurely melt roof snow creating a serious situation with icicles and the potential for ice dams. 

  • Ventilation can dissipate the heat moisture and condensation will feed mold growth. 
  • The best solution is to prevent heat escape from the pressure barrier of the living space and conditioned building envelope. 
  • Mold Prevention means treating the cause along with the affected surfaces.

If you are looking for a company that couples outstanding work with outstanding customer service, then Green Attic Insulation is who you should definitely call. I truly wish I would have called them years ago as I have been putting off suspected issues that centered around extreme temperature fluctuations between winter and summer, along with poor ventilation, within my attic.
