What Causes Attic Mold?
Poor ventilation can lead to condensation in your attic causing mold to build up and feed on. The water vapor in your property must go somewhere, and if it's not ventilated properly outdoors, you can end up with gathered moisture in your attic. You can get attic mold in warm or cold weather, always good to check for mold in your attic a couple times a year.
