Mold inspection and testing is fast becoming a primary concern for home buyers. As we become ever more health conscious, we expect a home inspector to help us determine if we need to be concerned about mold in the home, how to deal with existing mold, and how to prevent mold in the future.
A home inspector should be trained and certified in mold inspection and testing, and carry the equipment necessary to conduct testing if requested to do so by the buyer. Otherwise, a separate individual properly trained in these areas should be consulted.
Remember not to panic about mold. Rather, learn about mold, and how to treat mold, and most important, how to prevent mold from becoming a problem in the home you are buying.
At Priority One, inspecting for mold and the conditions that lead to mold growth are part of every home inspection.
