Insulation Services Photo Album: Finding Attic Mold in Howell, NJ
This homeowner located in Howell, NJ suffered from mold growing in the attic on the roof decking/sheathing. Mold growing in the attic can be hazardous to one’s health and needs to be addressed. Our team can treat mold by spraying and/or fogging the area with our Mold X-2 Stain Remover and our Mold X-2 Botanical. Though there’s more to just treating mold, we have to find the root cause. We can treat mold but that may not prevent mold from growing. This is why it’s important for our experts to get a whole house approach so we can help reduce further reoccurrences of mold. For this customer we air sealed the attic, spray foamed the rim joists, removed the old fiberglass insulation and blew-in our TruSoft Cellulose Insulation. This will help reduce the moisture or humidity from entering the attic. Remember mold feeds on moisture and humidity so our approach is to find the root causes.
