Mold is one of the last things you want to find in your home for a variety of reasons. Luckily, our team at Patriot Home Inspections has all the qualifications to provide a high-quality mold inspection. With our expertise, we can uncover the presence of mold in your home or restore your peace of mind upon revealing that your home is mold-free.
Here are four specific reasons to get a mold inspection:
- Prevent Structural Damage – It is no secret that mold can be quite destructive. Because it feeds on organic materials, such as wood and paper products, mold can damage wooden beams and other structural elements of a home. With a mold inspection, mold can be detected and remediated before it has the chance to do real structural harm.
- Promote Health – Mold is a major health concern, especially for children, the elderly, or anyone who has a respiratory illness or compromised immune system. To ensure everyone in your household remains healthy, consider getting a mold inspection.
- Attract Home Buyers – When you are trying to sell your home, buyers want to have peace of mind and know they won’t be inheriting any major issues, such as mold. With a mold inspection, you can show them that your home is a desirable, mold-free option.
- Musty Odors – If you smell musty odors in your home, it’s important to get a mold inspection. There is a chance that something else is causing the odors, but it is highly likely that mold is to blame. You won’t be able to eliminate moldy odors if you don’t first identify it as mold, and an inspection can do that.
