Should Attic Mold Be Removed in Homes in Mendham Boro – Ask SERVPRO

Many homeowners notice a strong, musty odor usually caused by active mold colonies in their homes in Mendham Boro but give it little consideration. There is often no indication of a mold problem in bathrooms or other high moisture areas. They may not realize their roof is leaking, allowing moisture to penetrate the attic area and providing the perfect conditions for mold growth.

SERVPRO provides mold remediation services in Mendham Boro and surrounding areas. Mold spores are floating everywhere in the air looking for the right germination conditions. If there is a leak caused by poor shingles, water makes its way into the insulation providing the right conditions for mold colonies to grow. Often, when the homeowner notices the odor and arranges for an inspection, the entire attic is full of mold.

Our mold technicians can inspect the area and provide recommendations on how best to proceed. Large infestations may need to be reported to local authorities, and specific mold removal protocols must be followed. SERVPRO can provide advice regarding how best to proceed.

SERVPRO can help remove contaminated insulation and disinfect the joists and roof supports. New insulation can be installed; however, it is important first to correct the situation that caused the leak in the first place. Homeowners can also prevent mold infestations in the attic by taking the following actions:

  • Inspect your roof once per year for significant deterioration of the shingles
  • Look for shingles missing or shingles that have begun to curl
  • Check the attic space for any signs of water stains on the roof joists
  • Take action immediately to make repairs and avoid water leaks in the roof
  • SERVPRO provides mold remediation and removal for all mold infestations.
