    Spotting The First Signs Of Mold

    Most homeowners don’t visit their crawl space or attic very often, but sometimes the first signs aren’t even visible:

    • Poor indoor air quality
    • Musty odors
    • Wet, damaged insulation
    • Broken plumbing pipes 
    • Cable/wiring issues
    • Buckled or warped floorboards
    • High energy bills
    • Headaches, chronic allergies and asthma symptoms

    Our Key Mold Concerns

    • Black Mold

      Black mold is considered highly toxic, forming in damp or moist areas and feeding on organic materials such as wood, drywall, carpet and insulation.

      Health concerns: Also called Stachybotrys, when exposed to humans, it can cause difficulty breathing, fatigue, allergies, persistent coughs, nose bleeds, headaches, and even neurological issues in children, and pulmonary bleeding in infants.

    • White Mold

      White mold is also very common in attics and crawl spaces. Looking similar to mildew, it’s a fungus that thrives in moist environments, just like black mold.

      Health concerns: White mold can cause issues such as eye irritation, headaches, dizziness, and respiratory concerns. When a mold infestation becomes larger than three square feet or is difficult to clean, you should contact a professional for mold remediation.

    What’s Causing Mold To Grow?

    Mold loves to grow in your home’s attic and crawl spaces, but what brought the mold in the first place? The short answer: darkness and the presence of moisture in the environment. 

    The consistent rain and humidity found in Seattle is the ideal breeding ground for mold-growth in your attic and crawl space.

    Mold Growth In The Attic

    • A leaky roof and roof sheathing brings in unwanted moisture, leading to attic condensation mold and eventually to serious problems requiring heavy-duty mold remediation. 
    • Inadequate insulation around the fixtures in your ceiling allows warm air to rise into the attic. This can lead to excess unwanted moisture and encourage mold growth.

    Mold Growth In The Crawl Space

    • Standing water from flooding, drainage or plumbing issues should be remedied immediately to start removing water, dry out the area and remove any wet insulation or drywall.
    • Ground moisture from wet soil or dirt evaporates from the ground, easing the potential for mold growth. Attic Projects can install a new vapor barrier across the soil and lower walls to keep your crawl space dry.

    Don’t Wait For Mold To Get Worse

    If you suspect mold growth in your attic or crawl space, it’s important to be proactive. Over time, mold left unchecked will continue to grow as spores reproduce and eventually spread, creating a bigger, more expensive mold remediation project for professionals later on.

    A mold infestation is not only unsafe for your family’s health, but it can also result in damages and costly repairs to your home.

    Fixing The Source Of Mold In Your Home

    Our Mold Remediation Process

    • Pinpoint the Mold. We’ll scour the hidden areas of your crawl space and attic, looking behind the walls, drywall, insulation, and floorboards to find the extent of your mold issue.
    • Discard Moldy and Contaminated Debris. For drywall, insulation and other materials too far gone to clean, we’ll carefully dispose of the material while wearing the necessary safety gear. 
    • Dry Out the Area. Next, we’ll use dehumidifiers and other high-grade fan systems to eliminate the humidity and moisture that’s allowing the mold to grow in the first place. We’ll make sure to remove any standing water from leaks or flooding.
    • Seal the Room. Mold spores spread through the air. Before we get to work, we’ll use plastic sheets and tape to seal off vents and other passageways to prevent the spread of toxic mold to other areas of your home. 
    • Apply Commercial Grade Cleaners. After a thorough cleaning and sanitation, Attic Projects will apply a fungicide product on the remaining materials. We’ll remove any airborne mold spores, then treat contaminated areas with a professional-grade mold remover.
    • Add Ventilation. We’ll inspect the HVAC system and check for any leaks, making sure roof vents are unblocked and the attic is properly sealed. We’ll ensure vent fans and dryer vents are ducted outside, and that the attic roof is ventilated. Attic Projects can also add insulation to eliminate further air leakage.

    Testimonials

    We live in an older home near a large park area. Since buying our home, we’ve had to deal with the occasional rat. These guys came out and sealed my entire attic space – vs setting a few traps. Then vacuumed out the entire space that had nearly 100 years of debris – including from our new roof and insulated the entire house. Love the 5 year warranty against the rats and we already notice how much warmer the house is. The did a great job keeping area clean and protecting floors, walls while working. Highly recommend.

    It’s a stressful situation when you find black mold in your home. The guys at Attic Projects were professional, polite and respectfully clean. They finished the job in a timely manner and went the extra mile to make sure I was satisfied with their work. Once the job was completed we instantly noticed a difference in our home’s humidity- going from 70% to the optimal 50%. I’d highly recommend these guys. Jordan, your customer service was top notch, thank you for making this a stress free experience.

    Attic Projects was so incredibly thorough and detailed with their description of how and why they were going to do each step, I knew I could trust them. These guys get it!! Total professionals, hard workers and they invited me to poke my head up in the attic during and after the job was complete. My in-laws received before and after pics and received a 5-year warranty on rodent proofing This was a big job and these guys absolutely killed it. I’d recommend them to anyone with similar issues. Thanks Attic Projects!!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How do I know if I have mold in my attic?

    If you have mold in your attic, you may notice poor air quality in your home, wet or damaged insulation, electrical wiring issues, high utility bills, musty odors, broken pipes, warped floorboards, or have developed health issues.

    What are the most common molds in attics?

    Black mold and white mold are the most common molds found in attics. They are also our main concern. Although there are other types of mold, and we remove and sanitize all molds in your attic, these two can cause the most health concerns in the least amount of time.

    My home is new… How can there be mold in my attic/crawl space?

    Mold can grow in a ton of different environments. Your crawl space may have been overlooked, and a leak could have trapped moisture inside. Wet soil can also cause mold in your crawl space. Insulation in the attic can also cause mold growth. It is best to contact a professional to inspect your home if you suspect there is mold growing.

    Do you sanitize the area once the mold is removed?

    Yes! When the mold is removed, our professionals then sanitize the entire area. The only way to truly get rid of mold is to clean and dry every area, so there is no environment for the mold to grow.
