Soda Blast with Soda Blasting Guys
Let Soda Blasting Guys expalin what makes a black mold black is simply the pigment melanin, a harmless pigment found in our skin to protect us from the harmful UV rays produced by the sun. It serves the same purpose in mold. Attic mold is almost never the more deadly black mold as attic mold almost always grows during the winter time as a result of simple heat loss, coupled with inadequate or improperly designed or installed roofing ventilation.
Soda Blast - Ventilation Problems: How The Mold Grows
Soda Blasting Guys knows when it gets freezing cold in the winter we turn on our homes heating system. Naturally heat rises, and when we don't have adequate insulation or when it is too cold to keep up with heat loss, this hot air makes its way into the attic itself. When a roof is ventilated properly, this hot air is channeled out of the attic through what are called out take air vents. These are in the form of box vents, power vents, gable end vents, or ridge vents. In order for the out take air vents to work properly the roof needs an intake air vent system. These vents allow colder air to move through the attic while the hot air is forced out through the outake air vents.
Soda Blasting Guys understands when this does not happen the hot air becomes trapped in the attic and coalesces against the freezing cold boards of the roof. This creates a hot air mass meets cold surface form of condensation called dewpoint, and usually results in droplets of water or frost. This moisture begins the cycle of mold growth that leads to attic mold infestations.
Attic mold typically only grows in the winter time unless it is caused by the rare roof leak or wet basement or crawlspace sending water vapor upwards. The reason it only grows during the 5-6 months of winter is during the rest of the year the temperature reached in the attic are far too hot, for aggressive mold growth. Soda Blasting Guys will resolve the problem for you.
