No proper attic ventilation or attic insulation. During winter months, warm, moist air enters our attics from the living space below and clashes against the cool roof decking and framing, resulting in condensation or even interior frost in attic. This repeated and sustained wetting of the wood encourages attic mold growth. Attic ventilation systems help control the attic moisture, temperature and humidity by exhausting the moist air, eliminating the potential for condensation or frost in attic.

Improper mechanical ventilation. Dryer vents, plumbing vents, kitchen vents and bathroom vents should always be exhausted to the exterior of the building. These vents should be exhausted properly to prevent any moist air deposits in the attic, humidity level rising and mold growth.

When addressing attic mold issue, the source must be addressed to provide a long-term solution. The key to eliminating attic mold is controlling the moisture in attic. Have a professional help diagnose your attic moisture and attic mold issues by properly recommending and implementing an attic ventilation system or other corrective measures.
