The main reason mold in your attic can be so dangerous is because it is not an area of your home that you regularly access, so if mold does start growing, you likely wouldn’t notice until it was a major problem. Mold in your attic is dangerous for many reasons, and some of them are much more serious than others.
Mold anywhere in your home affects re-sale. If you’ll be trying to sell your home in the future, you could have buyers lose interest because of mold in your attic found during the inspection. At the least, they would likely require that you pay for mold removal and a follow-up inspection.
Mold in the attic is also an issue because it leads to low-quality indoor air. You, family members, or guests could be particularly sensitive to mold, which could cause serious health problems. Health risks could range from a runny nose and swollen, itchy eyes to issues as serious as difficulty breathing and asthma attacks.
To avoid these dangers, it’s important that you have a team of professionals regularly inspect your home. You need to make sure that rarely accessed spaces, including your attic, basement, or crawlspace, are also checked. Mold in your attic can be dangerous to your home and to your health, so it needs to be removed immediately. If it is neglected, you could end up with a lot of mold growth, which would require more in-depth cleaning and possibly the removal of materials in your home.
