Southeast Michigan’s Leading Specialists in Attic Mold Treatment and Mold Remediation
Most homeowners are shocked when they discover mold in their attic. It’s not something you expect, especially if your home isn’t that old. It’s not uncommon to think that just because your roof is free of leaks that you won’t have attic mold that needs treatment.
Michigan residents, especially in moist areas near the lakes such as the Metro Detroit area, are more likely to develop problems with attic mold due to the humidity. Because of a range of causes, you should have your home inspected for attic mold regularly – especially during warm seasons.
Common causes of attic mold include:
- Leaking roof
- Poor, failing or improperly installed insulation
- Inadequate attic ventilation
- Dryer, bathroom, plumbing and kitchen vents that lead to the attic
- Water heaters or furnaces installed in attic spaces
- Ice damming
Mold only needs three things to thrive: moisture, warmth, and food. Eliminate any one of these and the mold will starve.
We often hear from homeowners who try to treat mold on their own using household chemicals like bleach. This isn’t recommended because you can disturb the mold and cause the spores to spread, potentially creating a greater health risk in your home.

When they got into the job, they realized it was more than double the work from what they’d anticipated. Instead of 3 hours, they spent 8 hours to clean up our mold. They did this without hesitation AND they refused to accept more money. They stood by their quote and saw the job through. I highly recommend ASD.”

Attic Mold Removal
“The father and son team did an excellent job of explaining what the process was and they did exactly what they said. They also are helping with getting some one to install a vent to the roof so mold doesn’t happen again. My electrician said that I didn’t need it and just vented my exhaust fan into the attic. Never hire him again. Would definitely recommend ASD WaterWorks to anyone that needs mold removal.”

Attic Mold Inspections – Signs and Symptoms of Attic Mold
There are a number of ways to identify possible mold growth in your attic and around your home. If you experience any of the following, you should have a mold inspection done on your home immediately.
- Asthma or difficulty breathing
- Sore, water or itchy eyes
- Congestion, runny or blocked nose
- Sore through and coughing
While these things don’t necessarily mean mold is growing, they can be a strong indicator of a mold problem if the symptoms disappear any time you leave your home. Don’t assume you or family just have a cold, especially if the symptoms persist and seem to return frequently.
Other signs of a potential attic mold problem include spotting what looks like mold, finding condensation in your attic, water spots or water accumulation.
