Mold can hide anywhere in a home. When buying a home, it is always a safe decision for your family to have the home tested for mold and other harmful allergens. Mold is tied to health-related issues for young children, the elderly and those who are prone to allergies. There are thousands of types of mold in our natural environment; however, none will ever grow without moisture.
Mold inspections for residential properties have become a common occurrence to safeguard the health and well-being of occupants and to protect the equity of homeowners’ investments. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), molds produce allergens, irritants, and potentially toxic substances. The EPA also recognizes that mold exposure can trigger asthma attacks.
Hiring a Mold Inspector
Allegiance Home Inspections offers mold inspections and air sampling for homeowners that believe their homes may have been compromised by mold. If you are unsure if your home has mold, here are some signs that can be used to determine if you need an inspection:
- The structure has current or previous water damage due to plumbing or drainage leaks.
- The structure has a moldy or musty smell, often referred to as “the basement smell.”
- Someone in the home has a chronic health issue or suffers from allergies.
