Mold Testing Before Buying a Home


It is important to know that when you are thinking about buying a new home, it could be contaminated with mold. Mold grows in many different areas including inside of walls, under carpet and tiling, and in the ventilation ducts of the house. By having a mold test performed you can rest assured that your new home won’t be harboring mold.


Require Testing from the Seller

Make sure that the seller gives any important information in terms of any mold issues that the home has ever had. Request that the seller pay for testing to be performed on the home prior to your purchase. This will ensure that any problems related to mold will be disclosed to the buyer before they purchase the home.

Get Information on Water Damage

Make sure that the company performing the home inspection also releases any information to you about possible water damage in the home. This will allow you to know possible areas that will allow mold to grow in them. Knowing where water damage has occurred in the home can also tip you off to what is causing it.


Request Mold Remediation Before Buying a Home

After you purchase a new home you can no longer require the seller to pay for any of the necessary repairs. This is why having the home inspected for mold before you purchase it is important. If the property is found to have mold, make sure that you request for a professional mold remediation company like Water Damage Zone to eliminate and restore any damage caused from the mold.
