Due to the rapid changing temperatures across Canada, mold in the attic has become more and more common. When temperatures fluctuate, condensation buildup will occur in the attic which can then lead to mold growth. Mold needs an organic substance that is wet to grow on, which is exactly what condensation in the attic provides. Since the attic is not a place we are typically in, we do not pay particular attention to it. The attic should be checked at least once a year to ensure that there are no issues arising.
Attic conditions such as humidity, wood sheeting, and often a lack of sufficient air flow, provide a comfortable environment for mold to grow.
Possible causes of mold in the attic are:
- Lack of ventilation in the attic,
- Too much or too little insulation in the attic,
- Bathroom fan not connected, not insulated,
- Roof leaks
