Black mold, also called toxic black mold, can be commonly found in your home's attic. Improper venting, along with water damages, such as roof leaks, pipe leaks and storms, can be the main cause of mold in your home. Mold can cause health problems in your family, including coughing, discomfort, sneezing, headaches and congestion.
We advise all home owners and business owners to contact Canada's Restoration Services if they suspect they have mold. Not all mold is visible and can be confirmed with an air quality test. An air quality test is not required on visible mold, but we highly recommend conducting air quality tests for other areas of the home to test for any mold spores that may have formed through cross-contamination. We do not perform air quality testing and utilize third party testing by an accredited air quality testing company. Home owners and business owners should steer clear of companies who perform air quality testing and mold removal services, as this does indicate a conflict of interest which may lead to deceitful results.

GETTING RID OF MOLD
In order to physically remove mold, our mold removal professionals either blast the mold off by "media blasting", which consists of Soda Blasting or Dry Ice Blasting. Furthermore, our mold experts can also remove mold by grinding the mold off or applying a mold removal agent. This procedure is only followed when a small area of the attic is impacted.
Be careful. Some companies will offer to sell or cover the mold with paint. It is imperative that you run away from these companies, as this is a temporary method to cover up the mold and acts as a "bandaid". The mold will still remain and cause respiratory problems and health issues.
Over time, dust and dirt will create a layer over top of the paint or sealant and mold will continue to form on top.
Other forms of improper attic mold removal are:
Fogging - Dead spores can release toxins, and once there is a new source of moisture, the spores can become visible again. The spores need to actually be removed and a hepa vacuum of the affected area is necessary for this to happen.
Insulation - This falls under the encapsulation or covering and only acts as a temporary cover up.

PROCEDURE TO REMOVE MOLD IN ATTIC
1. Mold Inspection: A mold inspection is conducted by a mold inspector that is IICRC certified, highly trained and considered a mold expert. Thermal imaging is necessary to do a proper and thorough inspection, moisture meters and hygrometers may also be needed.
2. Identify the source: The mold specialist will identify why the mold has grown. Most typical mold sources in the attic are inproper ventilation and insulation as well as roof leaks.

4. Media Blasting can now be performed, either by soda blasting or dry ice blasting. This is the only effective way to remove mold from your attic and will get into all of the nooks and crevices that otherwise would never be reached.
5. Hepa Sandwich is the only way to effectively remove all of the mold spores. This is done by hepa vacuuming your attic, then cleaning and then hepa vacuuming again. This may need to be done several times throughout the entire process. Air scrubbers and negative air machines need to be running which will also aid in the removal of the mold spores.
