How to Prevent Water Damage in Your Attic

9/7/2018 (Permalink)

Water and moisture in your attic can cause you headaches and costly repairs. Mold can grow and compromise your indoor air quality, and water can weaken the structural integrity of your home. To stop water damage in your attic, you need to know what causes moisture in your attic - roof leaks, improper attic ventilation and insulation and appliance failures.

  • Look for Roof Leaks in Your Attic

Check the insulation and wood for signs of water damage, such as discoloration and mold growth.

  • Ventilate Your Attic

Make sure your attic vents - soffit, ridge, and gable-mounted vents - openings are not blocked by something like insulation.

  • Insulate Your Attic
  • Vent Appliances to the Outside
  • Maintain Attic Appliances

Contact your local SERVPRO of Cherry Hill/Haddonfield for all of your water damage needs.
