Mold problem? Call Moldman!

Find a Moldman Near You


Description of Service

We are experts at attic mold removal and testing and have successfully eliminated mold problems in thousands of attics since we opened in 2006.


While we can perform attic mold testing when necessary, in reality when obvious visible mold is present in the attic, testing is almost never needed because the proper way to remove attic mold is the same regardless of what type of mold it is.


Do you have attic mold?

Any of these are possible signs that you might have attic mold:


  • Dark stains on the attic wood (e.g. plywood, rafters, trusses, ridges, etc)

  • Wood rot in attic

  • Stuffy, hot air in attic

  • Musty or mildew smell in attic

  • Dripping water from ceiling fans and/or smoke detectors

  • Frost accumulation in roof sheathing


Note further that almost all attic mold is caused by either a roof leak or poor ventilation.

Causes of Attic Mold

Most attic mold problems are due to poor ventilation in the attic, allowing moisture to accumulate on the wood over time and eventually leading to mold growth. Sometimes we see attic mold caused by roof leaks too, but most of the time it is due to poor ventilation and not a roof leak.


Our Attic Mold Removal Process

It typically takes Moldman 1-2 days to successfully do attic mold remediation.  Our attic mold removal process is as follows:


  1. Contain the work area

  2. Set HEPA air scrubber(s)

  3. Treat all mold-impacted surfaces with hospital-grade antimicrobial cleaning agent

  4. Stain-removal OR encapsulation with tinted antifungal stain-blocker

  5. Final cleanup of work area

  6. Customer sign-off


Benefits of Moldman Attic Mold Removal Service

One of the most important reasons to hire Moldman for your attic job is our experience. This matters because attics can be dangerous due to limited space, extreme temperatures, poor ventilation, poor visibility, electrical hazards, structural instability and pests/wildlife.


Aside from safety issues, here are other benefits you receive when you hire us:


  • Restoring clean air for you and your family or business

  • Protecting the value of your home or business

  • Time (Your busy, let us handle it)

  • Peace of mind

  • One and done - mold problems can recur if not fixed properly. We eliminate this possibility.

Attic Mold Removal Pricing

Moldman’s prices are average for the industry. Every attic is different, and bigger attics and/or more challenging attics (e.g. due to heightened safety issues)  will cost more.


While each of our locations has their own prices, our typical attic prices are in the range of $1k-$2500, which as we noted is average for our industry.


If you get a substantially lower quote, this is almost always because they are inexperienced, and lack the certifications, expertise and proper mold insurance that Moldman carries. These things really matter with attics because they can be dangerous. Mold insurance is a speciality insurance that is expensive and harder to find. Why does this matter to you? Because if a contractor causes damages to your home or gets injured, their insurance may deny the claim if they are not carrying the right insurance. Further, you or your insurance may be liable if their insurance denies their claim.
