Mold Inspection

Why You May Need a Mold Inspection

Mold can grow in just about any moist, dark area including your bathrooms, kitchen, or basement. If you suspect that you may have mold present in your home, it’s vital to get an affordable home inspection to look for mold as soon as possible. How do you know if you need a mold inspection, and what should you look for? Read on to learn more about why or when you may need this type of inspection done to protect your home and your health.

 

  • If you can actually see mold growing in the cracks or crevices of your home, it’s time to schedule a mold inspection right away. Mold can start to spread quickly and get behind areas where it’s more difficult to spot it with the naked eye.

  • If your home recently had any water damage, you should ask about this affordable home inspection. Whether it was a storm or leaky plumbing, water damage can cause mold to grow fast if the water isn’t dried right away (generally within 24 to 48 hours).

  • It’s not required, but it cannot hurt to have a mold inspection before you purchase a new home. You may never know if there was water damage before you moved in, and the only real way to find out is to have it inspected by a professional.

  • If you’re moving into an older home that has not been occupied for some time, it may have mold. Humidity buildup or leaks that have gone ignored can cause mold to grow at a rapid pace.

  • Unusual musty smells or blue, black, or white colors showing up in your home are common signs of mold. Don’t ignore these signs. Contact us right away for a mold inspection so you can stop the mold before things get out of control.
