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.

foundation repair-bowing walls/waterproofing/window wells in Topeka, KS

I waited to submit my review until the work completed was put to the test. Overall-this has been an exceptional experience. The work crew at Lamunyon headed by Caleb were very professional, efficient, courteous and hard working. There was no water in my basement during the heavy rains and flooding! Regarding service, I did have one minor problem and after letting them know, was contacted by Dave that same evening and a workman came to my home to fix it the next day. I was a little shocked by how quickly they took care of the problem. Without hesitation--I highly recommend them.

Repairs to settling foundation and bowed wall in Topeka, KS

Lamunyon's David Hoes and his crew were very professional about explaining the procedure in the way they were going to correct our problem.David and his crew very polite, courtesy, nice to talk to and polite. Our house had settled about 3" and the doors sticking or not closing. We also had a bowed basement wall with a lot of cracks. David and his crew came in with there equipment closed the basement door and went right t work. At the end of each day David would explain what they done for the day and that they will be here the next day and started about 8. It was unbelievable at the amount of work that they had to do just raise the house enough to secure the house from settling again. By Friday they had lifted the house, install three square beams in front of the bowed wall, cleaned up the dust and dirt, wiped off the floor on their hands and knee. Now, the doors close shut with no sticking, the house does not make cracking noise, and we feel alot better about our house now. We want to give these guys a big thank you and that they deserve praise from their company.
