YOU MAY HAVE MORE THAN BATS IN THE ATTIC!
Leaky roofs and malfunctioning gutters and downspouts are leading culprits with respect to water damage. In these types of situations, mold will often start in the attic, attaching to beams and insulation. Often, such leaks take a prolong period of time to seep down through the attic and into the ceilings, walls and insulation below. Since most homeowners do not regularly inspect the attic area, the mold is not noticed until it presents itself in the living areas below. This delay in recognizing that you have a problem, coupled with a hot, moist, and humid attic, is the "perfect storm" for the growth of mold.
Should you experience a problem with your roof or gutters, don't delay, contact your local SERVPRO professionals to come and inspect your attic. Getting your attic dry and any mold remediated, will put you and your family at ease.
