At Firehouse Roofing, we take the time to properly vet your roof vents. Without proper air circulation your attic will start developing moisture, and this can lead to mold. Let’s avoid this and make sure your home’s attic is venting properly.
Warm and moist air from activities such as cooking, laundering clothes, and showering rises into the attic of your home. When properly ventilated, your home pushes that air out to the outside environment – but without proper ventilation, mold and mildew can become trapped, leading to further problems.
Signs that there may be a moisture problem in your attic caused by poor ventilation include rusting of metal items including roofing straps, HVAC components, and electrical system components. If you see even mild-to-moderate surface rust on those metal components, it’s indicative that the insulation is not working properly, which could potentially lead to other issues like mold growth or rot, among others.
