Residential Mould Remediation

Suburban House

It may surprise you to learn that 95% of the mould / mold we encounter and treat is in the attic ...

 

Everyday activities -- like taking baths and showers, doing laundry, and cooking -- create moisture in your home that rises up into your attic. 

 

In an ideal scenario, high humidity activities that take place within your living space are vented by fans that lead to the outdoors via ducting that passes through the attic.  

 

The remaining humidity that makes its way naturally to the attic should be vented to the outside by way of roof vents and soffit vents.  Soffit vents should be clear of all insulation and debris.

 

If any of these systems have not been put in place or have degraded over time, the balance between moisture in and moisture out breaks down.  This creates the perfect environment for condensation and mould / mold growth.
