If you have discovered mold in your home, it's important that you quickly take action to solve the problem. If left untreated, mold can spread quickly - often in as little as 48-72 hours. Once it spreads, it can lead to health problems for your entire family. Mold occurs around a water source, usually a leak of some kind. That's one of the reasons why we recommend proper insulation, as it fills in cracks that can lead to leaks. However, if you already have mold, the priority is removing it and preventing it from recurring.
For many homeowners, it's not uncommon for mold to be found in the attic. In fact, roughly 50% of all homes have mold in the attic, and yet, 95% of the time, that mold goes unnoticed. It is not surprising that mold is commonly found in attics. That is because condensation forms and builds up when hot air meets cold air. If not properly insulated, your attic provides the perfect environment for hot air and cold air to meet. That makes it the perfect breeding ground for mold.
If you've spotted mold in your home, contact the experts at Blouin Brothers Insulation. Our highly trained technicians will walk you through the mold removal process, and recommend the best course of action for your particular problem.

We have had Jamie and his crew insulate not only our Sunswim Pool Concepts office building but also some inground pool frames. We truly appreciated their attention to detail and professionalism. We will definitely continue to deal with them on our future pool installations.
I had Blouin Brothers come in and blow insulation in my attic. They were great. I called them and they were in within a few days to do the job. They were reasonably priced... would have cost me almost the same amount to do it myself. No complaints. Would call them again.
Had my basement and joist ends spray foamed in 2009 and saved over 700 dollars a year in heating cost.
Jamie and his team went above and beyond with my cottage build this summer, a true professional!
