Attic Mold Removal in Westchester County

At Green Home Solutions, we know mold is the last thing you want to think about. But keeping an eye out for mold and moisture issues can help you be proactive before it’s gotten out of hand. One place to watch for mold is the attic. Our experts have administered attic mold removal for properties throughout Westchester County. We know how easy it is for mold to infiltrate this area. 

Why? Attics are often prone to leaks and other moisture events, which can create the perfect environment for mold to grow. Lack of ventilation or airflow makes this even more likely. It’s why we always recommend monitoring for mold as well as moisture in this part of the home. 

How To Spot Mold Issues In Your Attic 

If you’ve never needed professional attic mold removal, you may not even know what to look for. While professional testing is always recommended for homes in Westchester County, here are a few ways to spot mold or water intrusion: 

  • Damp insulation. If insulation in your attic is damp or wet, it’s an indication of water intrusion and likely even mold. If water is building up around insulation, it’s especially important to address. It’s likely increasing your energy bills while making your heating/cooling systems less effective overall. 
  • Discolored surfaces. Often, attic surfaces will feature obvious signs of discoloration, staining, or other wear. If possible, try to assess if these surfaces are soft, rotting, buckling, or otherwise deteriorating. You may even notice visible growth of some sort. Mold can grow in every color and in various patterns, so any sign of growth is a concern.
  • Worn roof shingles. You may notice that areas of your roof are getting unusually worn. Look out for shingles which are peeling, cracking, or sagging. These portions of the roof may be worn away due to persistent water intrusion. Where there’s longstanding water issues, mold is likely present as well.
