Your Concord Attic Is The Perfect Environment For Mold To Grow

Mold Remediation Your Concord Attic Is The Perfect Environment For Mold To Grow Give our SERVPRO of Concord rapid response team a call anytime you find mold growth in your home.

Failing Attic Insulation Can Create Mold In Your Concord Home

The winter months can often prove harsh on Concord homes. With heavier snowfalls expected year after year, the strain this puts on a roof and its supports can create vulnerabilities and damage over time. More pressing than this, however, is the insulation inside of the property in the attic space. When this gets thin in places for any number of reasons, the heat from the inside can create a hotspot on the roof that allows moisture penetration from the melting snow. With a warm and damp attic space, conditions like mold growth can develop over just a few days.

Many owners are not aware that there is mold damage in their Concord attic until it became severe enough to spread to the lower levels of the property. Contending with this situation requires a fast response, as the colony has already spread beyond the attic space and into a floor beneath it, exposing the occupants of the house to spores and debris, and threatening the integrity of materials used to host the spreading colony. Our SERVPRO professionals can help to contain this situation and remove the organism from the house.

Once our team arrives at your address, it is critical to understand the full spread of the damage. We put on full personal protective equipment to keep our SERVPRO technicians safe as we identify the spread of the damage and where containment measures need to get installed and operated to keep active spores from seating elsewhere in the home.

While reconstruction and repair are ultimately necessary for both the attic space and the damaged roof that allowed the moisture penetration, this is not the primary focus for our team. Our professionals work to dry up the affected areas thoroughly so we can prevent these areas from remaining habitable for ever-present mold spores in the environment.

The professionals sent to your mold emergency have the full measure of our industry-leading equipment and advanced training in mold remediation to make this process as seamless as possible for our customers. Give our SERVPRO of Concord rapid response team a call anytime you find mold growth in your home at (603) 225-2825.
