DIY Mold Inspection – Part 3: Attics and Garages

You might not live in your attic or garage, but when mold growth is present in those areas, it can still affect the air you breathe in your home.

Attic mold can be pushed or pulled into homes through points of air leakage each time attic or indoor air pressures change. People can also briefly inhale hidden garage mold whenever they leave or return to their homes. Additionally, mold in attached garages can easily transfer into homes when the door between them is opened.

The mold inspection photos and clear explanations in this book will help you understand the scope and causes of this problem.


DIY Mold Inspection – Attics and Garages

Attic mold is a huge problem in all climates, and mold growth in garages is more common than people realize. Most homeowners have no idea that mold exists in these areas. Outbreaks of black mold, white mold, and other colors of mold occur for many reasons and can cause a wide variety of mold symptoms.

Once mold in homes gets established, occupants and pets are at risk of mold exposure. Mold symptoms commonly include suffering from allergy symptoms, asthma symptoms, headaches, migraines, ADD, ADHD, sinus infection, ear infection, memory loss, insomnia, chronic fatigue, and cancer.

This book, Attics and Garages, is part three of the book series Do-It-Yourself Mold Inspection.
