Mold testing is very important to protect our families and ourselves. Rose Certified Inspections will always check for mold as part of our comprehensive home inspection.
Once the mold has been identified, it will then be determined the source of the mold and its severity. A few things that can cause mold include moisture leaks in the attic, lack of proper ventilation and neglect. Controlling most types of moisture problems is key. Leaky plumbing, poor ventilation, consistently wet foundations are also things to look out for when inspecting for mold. Mold will hide in areas that are not easily visible so it is important to physically feel around certain suspect areas. Mold will destroy the things they grow on so it is important to address the problem as soon as possible.
Mold remediation is then considered to determine the process for eliminating the mold. This cost can vary based on the type of mold and how extensive the damage.
The health problems that mold can cause include respiratory problems, headaches to something much more severe as death due to prolonged exposure.
Once the mold has been removed and the cause has been eliminated, it is important to occasionally inspect the area. Home maintenance is especially important when mold has been previously found. Rose Certified Inspections will guide you from start to finish in this process.
Rose Certified Inspections will provide the buyer with all the information needed to make an informed decision. Remember, mold testing and remediation/cleanup can give you the peace of mind that your home is a safe environment for you and your loved ones.
