In my garage attic I have mold. I need to find the source. I have a bonus room above the garage. I think there is heat loss in my bonus room causing the condensation in the garage attic. I am not sure how to fix the problem. Do I need better ventilation in the garage attic or is there another solution?

Is the garage area finished?
What vents are there now, soffit, ridge?
How are the knee walls insulated?
How much and what type insulation is in the ceiling in the garage?
Was the garage area air sealed before the insulation went in?
Where's the mold showing up?

The garage attic is partialy insulated and 2 vents were just put in 2 years ago and i am not sure if the mold was there the. We are getting rid of the mold and insulating the area in the attic by the bonus room .
