Home Mold Inspection Kit

If you are considering purchasing your first home, a new business property, or just an investment property, be sure that you have all buildings inspected thoroughly such as mold inspection, pest and others before you sign a purchase or lease agreement. There can be hard to find issues lurking behind the walls and under the floors of home and offices that can cause serious health problems, damage to the walls or floors, and many other issues. Mold and various fungi can grow on wood and drywall in any environment, and can be hard to find with a simple visual inspection.

One way to test for mold in a property before purchasing it is to use a airborne mold kit. These can often be found at hardware or home improvement stores, and are inexpensive. They consist of testing discs or strips that are set out for a specific amount of time in the environment being tested, and then are shipped to a lab. The lab will mail you the results, specifying if any mold spores were found and what kinds, within a few weeks. Most states require mold inspection, including the removal of wall panels, but be sure and ask the property inspector to check for mold in out of the way places such as air ducts.

Mold can cause property damage and health issues, and must be taken care of professional when it is found. Hiring a professional restoration company to treat the mold and repair any damage can be expensive. If you find the mold before purchasing the property, it will be the seller’s responsibility to fix the mold issue before selling the property. If they’re not willing to do so, they should at least lower the cost of the property to reflect the cost you will incur to treat the mold. If you’ve already purchased the property, the mold problem is purely your responsibility, so be sure to check for it before signing any agreements.
