Home Buying Mold Inspection
Mold inspection is often over looked in a real estate transaction and it is not part of a regular home inspection. A home inspector may or may not detect the sign of mold, since they are not licensed for mold inspection. If they point out that there is a concern for mold contamination, they normally recommend a licensed mold inspection. During the inspection period it is always recommended to ask for a general mold inspection even if the home inspection report does not point it out as a concern. The fact is that mold destroys more homes than termites do and buying a home is a large investment. A professional mold inspection will discover the mold history and current mold levels and it will help you determine if mold is a concern for the property your are buying.
