Vulnerable Roofs Can Lead to Mold Damage in Your Dayton Attic
SERVPRO Finds the Cause of the Mold Infestation Before Fully Remediating the Damage
Winter is rarely a kind thing for Dayton homeowners, as the freezing temperatures and high snowfall expected year after year can take a toll on your house. More specifically, your roof is an area of your home that is asked to deal with a lot of weight and pressure throughout the winter months, yet, most do not take the time to inspect and repair their roof after these damaging seasons adequately.
While you might not have glaring holes in the roof of your home, even the slightest weakness and vulnerability could result in a significant problem for you. As a roof weakens, points where water and moisture can penetrate do begin to develop, causing dampness to this region of your home. Given that your attic is one of the warmest locations in your house, regardless of the season, all of the requirements for mold growth are met when the moisture gets allowed into this area. It does not take long for mold damage in Dayton to start spreading throughout the attic of your residence.
From the moment that our SERVPRO team arrives at your house, our initial priority is to section off this area of your house from affecting new regions. This process gets accomplished by running air scrubbers with HEPA filters and also negative air chambers. These two pieces of equipment can limit the spread of active spores, so they do not spread out and seat in new areas of the attic space or circulate through the air flow systems of your home.
Locating the vulnerable points that allowed the moisture into the area is a critical component to stopping reoccurence. Once these areas have gotten identified, they can later get repaired. Drying the area is another crucial step in our remediation process, as this starves out any lingering spores in the area and prevents them from getting the food they need to seat and thrive.
Mold in your home is nothing to hesitate and wait to remove. The more that we know about exposure to fungal and mold growth, the more potential health effects that get attributed to encountering it.
