Hi - We noticed a white powdery substance on the wood joists in our attic? Does
anyone have any clue on what this could be? I'm not sure if this could be mold,
a ventilation issue, or something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated as
we want to make sure everyone's safe.

You need to find out what the white powder is so you can pin point the source.
I would call my local health department and tell them you are worried the white powder could be a health risk and they should be able to give you some advise.
I believe the OP stated he saw it in the attic, so I presume it's still
standing. Don't they usually demolish homes? Take a LOT of bullets to
exterminate it. Give it to the fire co for practice they will take care of
it cooties and all.
