Attic Mold Remediation and Removal​

Your attic can be the ideal breeding ground for mold. Conditions like excessive heat, high humidity, or roof leaks can provide enough water to cause and sustain mold growth. Attics tend to suffer from ventilation and insulation problems. These problems can obstruct air circulation and allow moisture buildup.

Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair’s attic mold specialists can perform mold testing and inspection to identify if your attic has a mold problem and develop a safe and effective attic mold remediation plan. Once your attic is clean and safe, we’ll make recommendations for solutions to prevent mold from returning in the future.

What Causes Attic Mold?

Aside from the obvious roof leak, moisture buildup in the attic can easily go unnoticed. As hot air rises in your home, it collects in your attic. If an attic is not properly ventilated, it can be very vulnerable to excessive moisture buildup. Warm air in the attic can lead to condensation and elevated humidity.

Conditions that promote attic mold growth:

  • Condensation
  • Poor ventilation
  • Excessive heat
  • High humidity – over 55%
  • Unaddressed roof leaks
  • Fans and ventilation that empty into the attic rather than outside

Can attic mold make my family sick?

It is very likely. Mold effects each person differently. Mold symptoms range from mild allergic reactions to severe upper respiratory problems. It all depends on the individual, the species of mold, the length of exposure, and several other factors.

In addition to potential health problems, living in a home with mold is simply unsafe due to the underlying water problems. Where there is mold, there is a water source. Mold and water damage can eat away at your building materials and seriously compromise the structural integrity of your home. That is why an attic mold removal plan will ALWAYS include moisture control tactics to prevent future problems.

Attic Mold Evaluation Process

Visual Assessment: Your Inspector will complete a comprehensive visual analysis of your attic to identify any conditions that could be causing and sustaining mold growth. You will have access to all digital documentation from our inspector for your records.

Moisture Mapping: Your inspector will carefully map out the damp or wet areas of your attic to determine moisture migration patterns and get to the bottom of where the water starts and stops.

Moisture Meters: Your mold inspector will use moisture meters to read the moisture content of building materials in your attic. Moisture locked within porous building materials like foundation walls can go unnoticed for a long time.

Thermal Imaging: Your mold inspector will be taking advantage of the temperature difference between wet and dry materials. Thermal imaging will allow your inspector to clearly identify all wet areas. This will allow for a more thorough understanding of the mold growth pattern.

Attic Mold Testing: Surface and/or air quality tests will provide scientific data that will confirm or deny the presence of mold and how much mold is present. If mold is confirmed in your attic, the test results will help your inspector figure out the most appropriate course of action to resolve the mold issue.

Report of Findings: Your inspector will develop a detailed, easy-to-read report that outlines what the inspector did, what he/she found, and what to do next. If deemed necessary, your inspector will present you with a detailed scope of work for a safe and effective attic mold removal.

The attic mold removal experts at Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair are thoroughly trained and equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools to safely address your attic mold removal needs.

I could not be happier…. in Clay Center, Kansas

"I could not be happier with the service I got from This company. I had a really bad first experience from the first water mitigation company I went through and when Lamunyon came their work was amazing. Every aspect of their customer service was so good. Megan was so sweet and helpful and heard me out and had someone out to me the next day. Jamie was so nice and explained everything to me. I have never had this happen and his demeanor really put me at ease as I was internally freaking out. The gentleman doing the work Jed and Aaron took care of my house and they were also so professional and caring. Jed answered all my questions. When I say “all my questions” I mean it, he was so helpful! He explained everything in such detail that I was able to understand. Any time I would call he would answer and if he wasn’t able to, he would call me back in a timely manner. I want to add that it is such a great customer service all the way around! Megan, Jaime, Jed, Aaron and Dustin thank you so much for your help and the great work that you have done. I will definitely refer you and if (hopefully not) I ever need work done you guys will be the first ones I call. Thanks so much!"
