Most people use their attics for extra storage space, while some never bother to use them at all. It really depends on the ease of access, as while many attics have a staircase or ladder that can be used, there are many older properties that only offer a small hatch to climb up through, usually in an odd place like a closet.
Regardless of the amount of foot traffic and general accessibility, attics have something in common that most property owners won’t like to hear; the potential for mold growth.
Considering your roof is the last line of defense between the elements outside your property and everything within it, one small leak could make your attic become ground zero for a mold infestation.
United Water Restoration Group of Pinellas, Florida would like to discuss the importance of seeking out professional attic mold remediation rather than trying to tackle the problem yourself.
Mold remediation is a serious undertaking, for structurally crucial areas like your attic, it’s even more vital. While it may be tempting to skip the costs of professional attic mold remediation, the average cost of $2,500 is a lot less than what you could pay if you fail to eliminate the mold problem on your own. Mold is more than just surface-level contaminants, and you could be dealing with an infestation that has permeated into parts of the structure.
Without proper remediation, a quick fix now can be set up for failure later as the mold spreads, further damaging the structure and potentially becoming a serious health risk to any inhabitants. It’s also important to keep in mind that while insurance may cover professional attic mold remediation to take the burden of the cost off of you, a failure in attic mold remediation as the result of a DIY could leave you high and dry as insurance companies may deem your mistake as an avoidable outcome and refuse to cover the new damages.
