Did you know that mold can begin growing within just 24-48 hours of a leak or exposure to moisture? Because attics are often rarely used, mold can grow and spread rapidly before homeowners notice. National Mould Removal follows the S520 Standard of Care outlined by the IICRC, ensuring that any mold growth is completely and safely contained.
Mold removal is not a DIY job - it's important to work with highly trained and experienced technicians. Our removal process ensures all mold spores have been contained and will not continue to spread in your home. We always use HEPA-rated negative air equipment and dustless tools to effectively remove mold while preventing spread.
We complete the process with manual microbial cleaning. We will thoroughly clean all exposed surfaces to ensure the area has been completely disinfected, sanitized, and restored. After completion, we always perform an air quality test to ensure all of the mold has been completely removed.
Mold growth can quickly damage structures and surfaces in your attic, like flooring, beams, and windowsills. At National Mould Removal, we offer complete restoration services including repairs to damaged sections of your attic.
There are many opportunities for mold to begin growing without homeowners noticing. Most homes in the Kitchener-Waterloo area have an attic, but newer homes are typically not designed in a way that makes use of the attic.
Attics are not always insulated in the same way the rest of the home is, and because they are often rarely used, issues that would be quickly noticed in other areas of the home often go unchecked until they cause other problems – like mold growth.
If you can access your attic, take a quick glance around the floors, beams, windowsills (if any) and any stored items. If you notice black spots, rot, or water/moisture, you should contact us right away. If you can’t access your attic but don’t notice any visible mold, there are other signs to look out for, including:
If your roof has not been replaced in a long time or has sustained some sort of damage, it can begin to leak in your attic. Once even a small amount of water or moisture seeps into your attic, mold can begin to grow within 24-48 hours.
A poorly insulated attic can become very humid during hot weather and cold, even frosty, during very cold weather. If this happens, moisture may begin to build up and mold can grow.
Just like insulation, some attics don’t have high-quality ventilation that the rest of your home may have. If your attic isn’t properly ventilated, during the hot summer months we get in Southern Ontario, warm, moist air can stagnate in your attic and cause mold growth.
Cardboard boxes left stored for long periods of time can become home to mold and mildew. If you use your attic for storage, consider using plastic containers and keep boxes off the floor. Be careful of how you store items such as old clothes, books and paperwork because they can easily harbour mold under the right conditions.
