Improperly vented bath fans more than likely...and most remediators would have it done in a day for less than 3K.

Re: Current Job "mold"


Done 100’s of these roof mold remediation. #1 factor was wet decking on roof install with improper venting. Without seeing it-it appears the decking has substantial rot and probably isn’t a durable nailable surface and will need replaced. Microban will only help in cross contamination concerns, which is justified and the fogging will help getting into those hard to reach areas.
Now, I never condone trying to place blame on another contractor but you need to see if an HVAC contractor installed the venting. I’ve watched way to many roofers lose lawsuits for improper venting leading to mold in attics. HVAC=heating, VENTING & AC.
