The Importance of Having a Mold Inspector When Buying a New Home
Congratulations, you’re buying a new home! But wait, before you schedule that home inspection keep in mind that most regular home inspections do not reveal signs of moisture and mold. The best course of action when making one of the biggest purchases of your life would be to consider all of your options when it comes to the safety of your new property. The presence of mold in a home can be very dangerous to your health and it can seriously compromise the integrity of your home’s foundation, plus it presents an ugly appearance and foul odor.
Real estate laws vary from state to state, and not all states require a seller to disclose mold problems, but in the state of California a seller can be liable for any undisclosed issues. When it comes to your realtor, it may not be in their best interest to inform you about any possible damage there may be due to a fear of loss of sale. It’s up to you to take matters into your own hands and go with a company like Environmental 911 who can seek out any potential issues before you buy a house.
The good news is testing is not costly. It strongly benefits you as a buyer to be proactive and take the extra steps. If mold is revealed you may just have yourself a bargaining chip. E-911 will do the poking around for you and fully disclose any activity you can’t see. Hidden mold can be found behind wallpaper or paneling, under tiles, under the backside of dry wall, under carpet, even in the piping inside walls. Save yourself from what can turn into a huge expense down the road and move into your new home under the safest of conditions.
