Managing Mold Formation in Your Arvada Roofing Materials


Arvada has experienced a hot and humid span of summer this year with all the afternoon rain storms in the early summer months. Unfortunately, this is a prime environment for mold to grow – especially in hard to examine areas within and below your Arvada roofing materials.

Mold spores love to grow on materials that contain cellulose such as paper, drywall, and wood.

Mold is a problem that if not taken care of right away, can cause major damage. As soon as you notice a leak in your roof, call for a professional roofer to inspect the area and provide an estimate right away. Moisture from a leaky roof can find its way down deep into the interior of your home. The mold can attack the fibers of the wood structure and weaken them with rot as it progresses.

To prevent mold, always repair leaks as soon as possible and keep your home well ventilated.  No one wants to face a premature roof replacement, so as soon as you see a leak, contact The Roof Dr. to ensure that your home and family don’t become victims of black mold. It’s also important to remember that most home owners insurance doesn’t cover the cost of mold damage, so it’s imperative to keep up with routine Arvada roofing inspections.
