Black mold results primarily from neglect. Simply by instituting a personal policy of having a professional roofer inspect your house, for free mind you, twice a year at least, you can avoid at least 80% of your high-cost roof repair issues. Mold and mildew come with a whole other cost factor as well. When you face the fact that your home has been invaded by this silent menace, you are not only in danger of major roof and house repair, you are also faced by the fact that you have introduce harmful bacteria into the intimacy of your home. Is your family plagued by poor health? Ask your roof inspector to check out your attic before it is too late.
Once you begin to see evidence of mold and mildew in your common living space, it may be too late just to spray and wipe. At this point, your dry wall and the very timbers of your house have been infected. That is why prevention is your best remedy.
There is a common myth that mold and mildew grow only in humid climates and in old houses. Not so. Humidity of course is required for mold to grow, but you could be living in the Mohave Desert and still have to tear your house down because of harmful toxins from mold. Houses in regions that get heavy rainfall all year round may never see mold because they maintain roofing inspections, have durable roofs in good condition and adequate venting in their attics.
A home in Lake Havasu City, one of the hottest and driest regions in the United States, can attract mold, mildew and dry rot because of the hot temperatures beating down on their roofs all year round. The heat builds up underneath the roof, the central air generates a lot of energy and drives even more heat up into the attic, and if that attic is not vented, then you have just created a mini rainforest in the middle of one of the largest deserts in the world. To prevent black mold, keep your home dry and have your roof and attic inspected.
