When you’re trying to get rid of mold in your home, it can be really helpful to avoid the areas that are most likely to have mold. Or any toxic mold. The problem with that is that there might be a bunch of those things where you can’t see them – as high up on a roof. Although this is not very likely to impact most homeowners, it could potentially be very dangerous and harmful to someone who lives in an older house or who has a certain type of health condition.

Near roof leaks

Mold grows when there is moisture present for a long period of time. It can be found in or outside the house, but it does not survive well in sunlight. While it is normal to find mold in the bathroom due to humidity and moisture, in other places, you might find it is on a roof that leaks. If you find mold on your roof, look around to find possible leaks that could be causing it. If you can’t see any leaks, call an expert to inspect your roof and find the problem.

Insulation

Roof insulation can get moldy, and it is very important to pay attention to that problem. When installing your roof insulation, you need to make sure that you are using the right products and have cleaned out all of the previous material. If you do not do this, then the moisture will not leave your roof, and it will start growing mold. This can cause a lot of damage to your house.

Vents

Mold can be found anywhere there is moisture, including roof vents. Roof vents are designed to allow hot air to escape and cool air to enter the attic. In order to keep rain and snow out, roof vents should be sealed tightly. Not only will they help keep the attic dry, but they’ll also prevent cold drafts from coming into the home.

The easiest way to tell if your roof vents have leaks is to turn off all of your home’s fans and heaters and listen for sounds of air movement. If you hear noises coming from the roof when your home should be quiet, there are probably leaks in your roof vents.

How does mold get into roof vents?

Moisture is the most common reason for mold growth, so any leaks or cracks in the vent itself will allow moisture in, creating a perfect environment for mold to grow. If you locate any leaks or cracks in your roof vents, make sure you repair them immediately.

So now that you know where you could find mold on your roof, the next step is to examine those specific areas and determine if they are actually causing water damage in your home. However, if you do come across mold in these places, you shouldn’t ignore it, as it has been linked to coughs and poor lung function. If you want to eliminate the mold, you should contact a professional roofer.

Our experience was fantastic. They worked quickly and efficiently and got the work done in a single day and the roof looks amazing. What we appreciated was the transparency of the work that they were doing and any obstacles that came up they immediately communicated with us. Also when they cleaned up the work site it appeared as if they were never there at all. Exceptional work!

Blue Collar Roofers did a complete tear-off and installation at our house. They were fast, professional, and communicated well throughout. The roof looks great, and they went above expectations with new venting (for our old house). We highly recommend them.

I had some roof damage from high winds and I was worried about the potential for more damage due to rain/snow. I called Blue Collar Roofers and spoke with Alex.

Dave did wonderful work! Thank you so much for your great service!
