Spam score increase for 2 major reasons.   1st: Backlinks which have high spam score. 2nd: Downtime of your website may increase spam score. Moz updates spam score every quarter means 4 times in a year.   1st: Get your website's link removed from those websites which are showing spam score. And submit them to tracking lists under Moz. Moz will track those links and when it shows that links are broken or your link is removed on them. Then it will decrease spam score or your website. Disavowing those backlinks in Google won't reduce spam score in Moz.   2nd: Increase authority backlinks with DoFollow attribute to increase the authority and trust in Moz. 3rd: Use good quality website, websites which have good backlinks and have high downtime can cause Moz to increase spam score.

Disavowing links will have zero impact on your spam score. Whatever site you are using to look at the spam score doesn't have access to what you have or have not disavowed.   Spam scores are just something made up anyhow. I would ignore it and move on. By the way, disavowing links was probably a mistake. You should never disavow links unless you have been hit by a manual penalty or have really, really, really strong evidence you were hit by an algorithmic link penalty.
