When Should You Have a House Mold Inspection
Home inspections are very common when a home is being bought and sold. These help to identify issues with the home itself and the structural integrity of the building. What isn’t included, except by happenstance, is finding mold. A separate house mold inspection should happen where the inspector is specifically looking for mold in places where it will likely be growing.
Whenever you are ready to purchase a new-to-you home, or even a brand-new home, you should have a house mold inspection. This will help to ensure that you aren’t buying someone else’s problems or finding an unexpected surprise. This is also a good idea if the house has not been lived in for several months as no one has been there to notice changes in the house. A house mold inspection will catch this mold growth.
If the home has suffered from flooding, it is very important to check for mold before everything is returned to normal with reconstruction. The last thing you want is to rebuild after a flood and then have to tear everything out again to do mold remediation. Having a house mold inspection can reveal mold areas allowing you to deal with them and then rebuild, confident that you will not have a lingering problem with mold in the future.
Maintain a Healthy Environment
Our homes are controlled environments and designed to protect us from the weather. While this is good it also means that our indoor air is often isolated from the external air, and this can end up causing things like mold spores and other irritants to spread around the home. When mold is present it is important to deal with it as soon as possible before it causes further health issues. Protect your family and your Tampa, Fort Myers, Naples, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, and the surrounding area home with a house mold inspection.
