Because attics are subject to extreme temperature fluctuations and are located right below the roof, there are numerous scenarios that can lead to water damage. When any type of water damage occurs in an attic, it’s usually only a matter of time until mold begins growing.
One of the reasons that mold can be such a serious issue is because of its ability to spread. If mold spreads to any other part of an Omaha home, it can cause additional damage, as well as lower the home’s air quality.
Although mold can have a very negative impact on the structure of a home and its air quality, the good news is Restoration Now! Omaha can help. With our professional water damage and mold remediation services, we can take care of any existing mold and ensure that it doesn’t turn into a problem that gets worse.
Attics Are An Especially Dangerous Space for Water Damage and Mold
When a homeowner discovers signs of mold in their home, they should never attempt to remove it on their own. The reason that trying to remove mold caused by water damage or another issue is a bad idea is because improper removal can lead to the mold spreading to other areas of the home. Another potential complication with DIY removal is the actual cause of the growth may not be addressed.
For mold growing in an attic, there are additional dangers that go along with any attempts at DIY removal. Electrical shock hazards, lack of proper work surfaces, challenging ventilation and other conditions create an environment that can easily cause a serious injury.
How Restoration Now! Omaha Fully Removes Attic Mold
Since mold needs moisture in order to grow, a key part of our mold removal and prevention process is determining what’s creating moisture in an attic. In many cases, poor ventilation or insulation leads to high levels of water vapor getting trapped in the attic. And for mold caused by water damage, we will fix the site of the damage.
The other component of the mold remediation process is actually removing the mold that’s present. By using our specialized equipment, our highly trained technicians can successfully remove all mold in a manner that won’t cause any of the spores to spread.
And because we never take shortcuts like attempting to paint over surfaces with mold, you can be confident that your family will be safe from low quality air and your home will be able to successfully pass any future inspections.
