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 residential or commercial property, it collects in your attic. If an attic is poorly or insufficiently ventilated, it can fall victim to excessive moisture buildup. Warm air in the attic can lead to condensation and elevated humidity.
Conditions that promote attic mold growth:
- Poor ventilation
- Excessive heat
- High humidity – over 55%
- Unaddressed roof leaks
- Fans and ventilation that empty into the attic rather than outside
Professional Attic Mold Inspection Process Virginia
A trained and certified Mastertech mold inspector can determine if you have mold, how bad it is, what caused it, and how to properly remove the problem. Each Mastertech attic mold inspection in Virginia includes the following:
Visual Assessment– During a visual walk-thru, your inspector will look for conditions that could be contributing to mold development. You will have access to all digital documentation from our inspector for your records.
Moisture Mapping– Your inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your attic to determine moisture migration patterns and get to the bottom of where the water starts and stops. This will help us understand the full extent of the problem and what is causing it.
Moisture Meters: Your mold inspector will use moisture meters to read the moisture content of your attic building materials. Moisture locked within porous building materials be easily over-looked for an extended period of time.
Thermal Imaging: Your mold inspector will be taking advantage of the temperature difference between wet and dry materials. Thermal imaging will allow your inspector to clearly identify all wet areas. This will allow for a more thorough understanding of the mold growth pattern.
Attic Mold Testing– Surface and/or air quality tests will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold and how much mold is present. If mold is confirmed in your attic, the test results will help your inspector figure out the most appropriate course of action to resolve the 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 detailed scope of work for a safe and effective attic mold removal.
