Mold in the attic


I have something which appears to be mold in my attic. I am going to try a mold bomb, which I just heard of for the first time, to get rid of it. However, my question is how do I keep it from coming back? The mold does not appear to be on the gable ends or the insulation.

Re: Mold in the attic


We will need some idea of your location, the venting you have near the peak and at the soffits, air chutes from the soffits into the attic, anything like bathorom fans just blowing into attic.

Re: Mold in the attic


If you have mold, you have a moisture source.
