What are the Different Types of Attic Mold?

Much like basement mold, attic mold can be divided into two primary categories: allergenic or white molds and toxic or black molds.

White molds are common in attic spaces, where it grows readily on wood and drywall surfaces. In an attic space, this mold is often mistaken for efflorescence, which is a buildup of salt from a water source. While not as dangerous as black mold, white mold can cause allergies and skin irritations.

Black molds, or Stachybotrys, produce harmful toxic chemicals called mycotoxins. This type of mold is characterized by its black appearance and musty odor, which compromises the quality of your air. Black mold is associated with respiratory difficulties, sinus complications, and allergy symptoms.

At ES America, we offer a range of mold remediation services, including testing, cleaning, and mold removal. With help from our experts, you can live and work in a mold-free environment.

What are the Signs of Attic Mold?

Attics have ideal conditions and food sources for mold growth. Not only are they hot and humid but they also often have improper ventilation and provide a great source of organic food. Molds grow more readily in places with abundant food, and roof sheathing is the ideal material.

Furthermore, most homeowners don’t visit their attic space very often, so mold spores can go undisturbed for months or years at a time. The following signs point toward current or potential mold growth:

  • Dark stains on wood
  • Bad mildew odor
  • Hot and humid air
  • HVAC leaks
  • Roof leaks
  • Appliance leaks
  • Frost buildup
  • Water drips

When it’s cold outside and your attic has poor ventilation, water vapor can freeze on the underside of your roof. Frost buildup on roof sheathing is easy to spot, and it’s a sure sign of mold development. Water dripping from smoke detectors is a similar sign, as it points toward an excessive level of moisture that needs to be addressed.

What are the Common Causes of Attic Mold?

If you want to prevent mold, it’s important to understand how it develops in the first place. While mold is present for many reasons, attic mold is mostly related to water damage or poor ventilation

Attic spaces are often associated with a breezy airflow, but blocked or insufficient ventilation can produce mold. For example, a mold problem can occur due to insufficient vents or locked soffit or eave vents. Excessive moisture and mold can also occur if air is depressurized and pulled down from your attic into the rest of the building.

I was contacted promptly after inquiry, Eli was great in explaining where specifically the asbestos was found in my older mobile home, and how it was to be removed before the structure could be demolished. Job was done great and within the timeframe they stated in the estimate. Would definitely recommend.
