Attic Mold Inspection Steps
If there are roof leaks in a building, water is going to flow downward by gravity to wet the insides of the attic, attic timbers, attic floor, and ceilings and walls below, and thus cause massive hidden mold infestation, such as pictured in the attic mold infestation picture on the right side of this page.

If a building attic has roof leaks, mold growth, or a mold smell, the attic needs to be very carefully inspected with a strong flashlight to inspect for water stains, water damage, and mold growth.  The insulation on the floor of the attic needs to be removed one section at a time to inspect the top, sides, and bottom of each insulation batt for possible mold growth. A batt is a piece of fiberglass used to insulate buildings.

When the batts are removed a few at a time, the wood flooring beneath the batts can also be inspected for water stains, water damage, and mold growth.  Mold-free batts can be re-installed if there is no water damage and no mold growth beneath the batt.

If you discover attic water stains, water damage, and/or mold growth, hire a qualified and experience roofing contractor to inspect your roof top-side for water leaks and to fix any discovered roof leaks.

In addition, you should do mold testing of the attic air to determine if
there are elevated levels of airborne mold spores.

Q. July 14, 2012. How much would it cost me to have you inspect my home? I moved in in 2010 of August water began to drip from my ceiling soon after I turned on the AC ( I have never thought of mold other than on bread, I knew nothing about mold and such.) at the same time I fell ill like never before, I was put on multiple meds and injections to help me breathe. I had never been so sick with my asthma. For the first time in my life I was told I had to get treatment from an asthma doctor because the severity of the illness. I wish I knew that mold was so deadly and caused by moisture. I have gone 2 years with a leaky ceiling and have developed a list of illness. I get hives, I couldn't figure out why or what they were from. after the paint on my ceiling began to peel away I saw black spots all over the ceiling & have began thinking I needed to learn more about mold and since then began researching mold. I am sending my 5 year old to stay with a relative. She over the course of these 2 years have complained about her tummy and I chalked it up to her having trouble digesting dairy (which was not an issue before moving into our home) I am afraid of what may be in our bodies. I am also afraid I may not be able to afford the inspection. I think our doctors can help us better knowing what we have been living in but without proof it seems to not matter that I say we have been living and breathing mold spores. I took some pics I am attaching just a few.
A. Your submitted mold pictures (see attic insulation picture to the left of this Q & A) show very advanced and dangerous mold growth on your attic insulation and on your ceiling. Your family's health problems also indicate that you are living in elevated levels of mold. I'm glad you have decided to send your daughter to live with relatives, but you are also at a huge health risk from living in such a huge mold problem. Consider temporarily moving somewhere else until this mold health threat is taken care of.  Don't move any of your clothing or other possessions elsewhere without first washing them thoroughly with borax laundry detergent outdoors to prevent mold cross contamination of where you move to. Read about mold health problems on the home page of http://www.moldinspector.com.  The linking ceiling tells you that you will have mold growth inside the ceiling, likely inside the side walls, and in the attic or other area above the leaking ceiling. In what city and state do you live?  Do you own or rent?  Thanks, Phillip Fry, mold expert, Certified Environmental Hygienist, Certified Mold Inspector, and Certified Mold Remediator
