There are two things that you might not think about that are important for your home’s attic to be a dry environment so that mold doesn’t activate and colonize there. The first is adequate ventilation so any condensation that might form would be quickly dried before it could attract and harbor mold. The second is the correct amount of insulation so that the air in the attic doesn’t reach a dew point temperature that would result in condensation that might be more than the ventilation system could handle.
The best course of action is to reach out to a company that is experienced with home insulation and resolving mold issues. That way you can learn if your home needs a home insulation project, and if a mold problem exists, the mold remediation process can begin as well. The goal will be to prevent mold issues and improve the energy efficiency of your home with the right home insulation for your situation.
At ARC Insulation, we offer the best of both worlds. We want to help you achieve energy savings and peace of mind that you won’t end up with mold in your home’s attic because of inadequate home insulation. Not only can an issue with the insulation result in condensation, but if that condensation comes in contact with some types of insulation, it can result in decreased insulative capability. It is interesting how the two go hand-in-hand and how important it is to be sure your home insulation is able to do its job properly. Reach out today to learn more and schedule an inspection.
