How A Damaged Roof Can Allow Attic Mold Damage In Your Minneapolis Home
Mold Damage In Your Home
One of the problems of harsh winters to Minneapolis homes is the damage that heavy snowfall has done to the roof of your house that you might not even know. Since many homes have unused attic space (for more than merely storage or air circulation appliances), you might not know about problems with your roof, which in kind affect this attic space, until significant damages have already occurred to the construction materials and structural components found in this area of your residence.
Vulnerable areas of your roof not only raise the cost of the utilities every month from a lack of consistent insulation but also present the possible penetration of water to these weaker areas of the structure. When moisture from the outside can penetrate into the support of the roof (and then into the attic space) this warmer portion of your Minneapolis home is susceptible to widespread mold damage.
Regular inspections are essential to prevent a considerable problem in this area of your house. While our SERVPRO professionals can help you to do more thorough inspections that look more intently at all of the possible places mold could exist, many of these inspections you can also do on your own to see if you notice (or smell) something out of the ordinary.
If you or our SERVPRO professionals encounter mold throughout this crucial inspection, remediation needs to occur soon after that. The longer that this process is put off, the more widespread the problem can become and the more likely that structural components in this area need replacement rather than restored.
If you do not know what you are looking for when it comes to finding mold growing in any area of your house, you can entrust this process to our experienced technicians at SERVPRO of Minnetonka. We can work quickly to find mold and to remediate the damage that it has caused to your home. Call us today at (952) 473-4837.
