Air Quality/ Mold Testing

Why Do Home Inspectors Check For Mold?

Mold Can Be Dangerous!

  • Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods.
  • Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints.
  • Additional health conditions have been found to include such symptoms as congestion, chronic fatigue, bloody noses and flu-like symptoms that won't go away.
  • Distinctive Property Inspections can run a comprehensive environmental test to look for mold particles in the air and identify the types of spores. Often mold can go unnoticed by new home buyers, don't get a nasty surprise when you move in!

 

Why Mold Testing Is Important

  • Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot and ruin drywall.
  • Since mold grows where excessive moisture may be present, mold in a home can indicate more serious issues that a home buyer may not immediately notice.
  • A thorough test can help identify the type of mold (toxic or not) and help identify where it is located.
  • Distinctive Property Inspections professionals can identify and test for lead based hazards around the home.
  • If mold is a problem in your home, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture. Full remediation of mold can cost in the thousands of dollars, especially if it is toxic!
