Article Summary: 

If you suspect mold growth in your attic, it's essential to act quickly to prevent further damage and protect your family's health. Mold in the attic is typically due to the presence of excess moisture, which can occur due to a leaky roof, improper installation of roof exhaust vents, condensation, or damage from ice dams. DIY mold removal is not recommended, as it can cause health problems. Instead, it is crucial to call professional restoration services, such as Rainbow Restoration, which can safely remove, clean, or encapsulate any mold-damaged areas of the attic. Rainbow Restoration also provides full-service reconstruction to remediate structural damage to the roof. Contact them to learn about available local services. It is essential to avoid cleaning or attempting to disinfect mold-affected areas with bleach or household chemicals. Additionally, Mr. Handyman recommends insulating your attic access to prevent ice dams, which can lead to water and mold damage.
