Black Mold in Ansonia Attic Caused By Roof Leak
At some point, we have all seen mold - whether it be on a wall of our home, a windowsill or under a kitchen cabinet. The attic is a common area where mold is found.
Microbial Growth can be found in many spaces, typically in spaces where there may be water infiltration, such as the attic, as well as the basement.
Mold needs two elements for growth - food and water). Without these two elements there will be no growth. Even with one of these elements not active mold growth can stay dormant until it has them both back again. This can restart the process.
Attics are more susceptible because of the amount of dust, dander, porous materials, and temperature changes that cause moisture. This also can occur because of water leaks from poor roofing conditions, not enough ventilation causing condensation, or ice damming.
Here at SERVPRO of Milford-Orange-Stratford, we strive to remove and eliminate these conditions to provide you a safe and normal way of life.
