Our Mold Services Include:
Mold and mold spores can occur in the areas where moisture and ventilation problems exist. Mold not only compromises the structural integrity of a home or business; it can also cause long-term health illnesses. As soon as you suspect mold in your home call the experts at Bactronix Nova. The certified Mold Inspectors will provide a full inspection of the property. This inspection includes advanced testing and reporting. The tests will determine what may be causing the mold and what kind of microbial activity is growing on the surface. You will also receive a detailed proposal for remediation services.
As shown in the diagram below, bacteria, mold, mildew and odor problems can develop from pre-existing conditions in the home.
Mold in the attic is more common than you may think. Moisture can easily build up inside of an attic because of poor ventilation or a problem with the roof. Wherever you have moisture problems, you are likely to have mold problems that will follow.
As for the roof, there is a barrier just below it which is supposed to prevent moisture from seeping through the ceiling. But this barrier cannot handle roof leaks or ice dams. The latter refers to ice which blocks the downspout. This is bad because when it gets warmer, the snow on the roof will melt into water. If the ice is still blocking the downspout, then the water won’t drain from the roof. Instead, it will build up on the roof and likely cause a leak into the attic. Not only does this increase mold in the attic, but it can also damage your insulation, walls, and ceiling as well.
