White paint in attic ?

 

 

Mold Remediation is not a regulated field in Michigan. For this reason the lack of standards creates lack of professionalism and there are companies that are not qualified to do this type of work making a bad situation much much worse. These contractors generally use a primer like paint applied over the surfaces with a  sprayer. This process is commonly known as encapsulation. This process will cover up any mold, making it more difficult to see the mold when it begins to grow and spread. It will make the situation worse in the long run. Do not allow anyone to paint your attic white. Do not buy a home that has an attic that is painted white. There is a right way and a wrong way. White paint over mold is the wrong way.
