Should You Get a Mold Inspection?
Black mold in your house is not only dangerous, it can be very costly to remove. If you are buying a home in a damp climate or notice signs of water damage consider investing in a mold inspection prior to purchasing your home.
The best places to look for mold as you're walking through a home are around baseboards, bathrooms and in finished basements where moisture is a common issue. Make sure that if you're looking at a home which smells wet or like there may be mold present (even if you can't see it) that when you're arranging a home inspection you ask the certified inspector if they specialize in looking for and evaluating mold in residential structures. There are some specialized tools which can be used to evaluate the moisture content of drywall which can help you evaluate if mold is present, but out of sight.
