Attic Mold Remediation Tidewater Region VA

Attics can be the ideal environment for mold development if you are not careful. Conditions like excessive heat, high humidity, or roof leaks can be an adequate moisture source for mold development. Attics often have poor or insufficient ventilation and various insulation problems. As a result, moisture begins to buildup with the restricted air circulation, leaving your attic at risk vulnerable to mold.

Conduct routine attic checks to assess for potential moisture and mold. If you discover attic mold growth, we can help.

Mastertech Environmental’s team of expert attic mold inspectors and attic mold technicians are carefully trained to properly assess your attic for mold and prescribe a safe and effective attic mold remediation solution. A key element in mold remediation is getting to the bottom of what caused the mold in the first place. This way, we know what our clients can do to prevent it from happening again. Mastertech of Tidewater provides the highest quality attic mold remediation services in Virginia. Our top priorities are, and will always be, client safety, quality control and getting the job done right for you and your family.

What causes attic mold in Virginia?

Aside from the obvious roof leak, moisture buildup in the attic can be inconspicuous and easily overlooked. As hot air rises in your home, it collects in your attic. If an attic is poorly or insufficiently ventilated, you can end up with excessive moisture buildup within the space. Warm air in the attic can lead to condensation and elevated humidity.

Conditions that promote attic mold growth:

  • Condensation
  • Poor ventilation
  • Excessive heat
  • Elevated humidity levels- over 55%
  • Unaddressed roof leaks
  • Fans and ventilation that empty into the attic rather than outside

Can attic mold make my family sick?

Yes. The effects of mold exposure varies per individual. Mold symptoms range from mild allergic reactions to severe upper respiratory problems. Some individuals may be more sensitive to the effects of mold, while others may not be bothered at all. It all depends on the individual, the species of mold, the length of exposure, and several other factors.

In addition to potential health problems, living in a home with mold is simply unsafe due to the underlying water problems. Where there is mold, there is a water source. Mold and water damage can eat away at your building materials and seriously compromise the structural integrity of your home. That is why attic mold remediation will ALWAYS include moisture control tactics to prevent future problems.

Attic Mold Inspection Process VA

A thorough attic mold inspection in Virginia, completed by a trained and certified Mastertech mold inspector, will determine if you have mold, how bad it is, what caused it, and how to properly fix the problem.

Visual Assessment- Your MasterTech inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis of your VA attic to identify any conditions that could be causing and sustaining mold growth.

Moisture Mapping- Your attic mold inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas throughout your attic to determine moisture migration patterns and get to the bottom of where the water starts and stops.

Moisture Meters: Moisture meters allow your inspector to read the moisture content of building materials in your attic. Moisture locked within porous building materials like attic sheathing can go unnoticed for a long time.

Thermal Imaging: Your attic mold inspector will use the temperature difference between wet and dry materials as a guide to help determine what areas of the attic are damp, even if dry to the touch. This will allow for a more thorough understanding of the mold growth pattern.

Attic Mold Testing– Surface and/or air quality samples will be collected and analyzed by an accredited laboratory. The lab report will provide scientific data that will determine is there is elevated mold present, the species of mold present, and how to effectively resolve the attic mold issue.

Report of Findings– Your Mastertech inspector will develop a detailed, easy-to-read report that outlines what the inspector did, what he/she found, and what to do next. If deemed necessary, your inspector will present you with a recommended scope of work for attic mold remediation.

Mold is a bio-contaminate that may require immediate professional remediation.
