PORTLAND ATTIC MOLD – WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING

Fogging with Microbial and Painting | Don’t Raise Red Flags with Attic Paint

Includes:

  • Fogging with mildecide – leaving stain under paint
  • Application of a mold-resistant sealant
  • Not fixing cause of moisture source – Mold will return
  • Anyone looking to purchase this property will have questions regarding the white sealant.

This remediation technique draws unwanted attention to a previous problem. Leaves mold staining under encapsulation. Mold can return under paint creating a bigger problem.

Sanding and Fogging | Weakens Roof Structure and Time Consuming

Includes:

  • Sealing off insulation
  • Sanding all nooks and crannies to remove visible mold staining
  • HEPA vacuuming all mold spores in attic

Portland Attic Mold is feeding on the roof sheathing, and what you can see with the naked eye are millions and millions of them clumped together. What you can’t see are the “roots” The organism itself. The roots of mold grow into the substrate at least 3/16 of an inch. You cannot hope to solve a mold problem leaving these roots and treating only the surface of the wood. In order to remove this root structure you would have to sand off 3/16th of an inch. This weakens the roof structure.

Soda Blasting | Time Comsuming and Expensive

Includes:

  • Removal of all Insulation
  • Soda Blast all visable mold
  • HEPA Vaccum all surfaces
  • Install New Insulation

Soda Blasting is expensive and time consuming. Soda Blasting removes the visible mold but does not penetrate into the porous wood in the attic eliminating the mold root structure.
