Attic Mold Removal, Rye NY, Westchester County
Attic Mold Removal, Rye NY, Westchester County; Here are a before and after photo of an attic mold remediation we did in Rye Ny, which is in Westchester county. We were called because a white fuzzy mold had engulfed the attic. This attic was underneath a cedar shake roof which had been covered over by asphalt shingles. A combination of the shingles reducing the air flow and a change in the windows in the house to a more modern airtight energy efficient type had a negative effect on the amount of fresh air that could circulate through the attic. Stagnant air can lead to mold growth because it doesn’t allow moisture to evaporate, this along with an ample food supply (the wood that makes up the attic) and almost total darkness creates the perfect environment for mold growth. This particular strain of mold grew very quickly in a matter of months it went from nothing to a very lush growth covering the whole of the interior of the attic.
We set up to clean the attic by first HEPA vacuuming, then spraying and wiping with Cal-brite anti-microbial solution, then HEPA vacuuming again. As you can see from the photos our treatment was quite effective, the mold is gone and the attic looks like it did before the mold and mildew outbreak. Call us at 866 543-3257 for a free estimate.
