How to Clean Mold in the Attic
Mold can quickly develop in the attic, as the attic is typically a dark area that receives little sunlight. Add that to the fact that moisture can also develop in attic areas, and you have the perfect harbor for mold growth. As mold can cause allergic reactions, respiratory problems and a host of other medical issues among many people, it is important to keep the home free of mold. Getting rid of the mold is a fairly simple process requiring a few tools and a little elbow grease.
