The terms mold removal, mold mitigation, mold remediation, and mold cleanup are all common phrases used to describe the treatment and/or removal of active mold from a structure. None of them imply a particular level of experience, education, or training. Make sure anyone addressing an environmental concern, especially mold, is qualified to help you.
Attic mold is often not the result of a leak or catastrophic water damage. Attic mold is commonly caused by improper, conflicting, or restricted ventilation. During cold temperatures, if warm moist air from the house penetrates the attic and is not properly exhausted, it will cause condensation to form on roofing materials. If the problem persists, mold will begin to grow on the organic building materials, like wood. Attic mold can be a variety of colors, but black mold and white mold are the most common. Unfortunately, the problem often requires professional mold remediation services to correct it.
