Mold Hiding in the New Home Your Purchased

Written by Alliance Environmental

Purchasing a home can be a very exciting opportunity but it can also be a long process. After your purchase a home the least thing you want to be thinking of is any problems that may happen. One of those problems is water damage or a leak in the house causing major problems.Mold can be hiding in the new home you purchase. At the time of purchase mold might be growing in unseen places. While house hunting, know that any musty odor can be a sign of mold growing. Whether you want to buy a home that needs some TLC, the seller should disclose of any mold or water related problems.

THESE THREE KEY COMPONENTS CAN HELP YOU MAKE YOUR DECISION WHILE HOUSE HUNTING

  • Be on a look out for mold: Use your senses. If it smells musty there might be mold hiding in the home
  • Ask your realtor/agent/seller to disclose of any water damage that might have existed before. Also ask if mold has existed in the past.
  • Get a home inspection: A home inspection will let you know if there is water damage in the home. The home inspector will look around areas that you can’t inspect and advice you to hire a technician to get rid of the mold.
The Indoor Air Quality Network in Youtube, recently posted a video about this subject. If there is mold in your home, hire a professional that will safely get rid of the mold. Mold can be a negative health trigger and affect all those who live in the home.For professional and expert mold removal contact Alliance Environmental who provides safe, efficient, clean and high quality services for our customers and partners.
