You may have a mold problem in your home if you are smelling musty, moldy, or other unpleasant, dank odors.
Damaged, old, poorly installed or maintained roofs can lead to roof leaks and mold.
Ground that slopes towards (rather than away from) a structure’s exterior or perimeter walls can allow water intrusion from rain and/or irrigation.
Poor ventilation of the crawlspace, cracks in the foundation, support beams contacting the soil, and rising dampness can all impact the foundation and lead to mold in the structure.
Some plumbing issues are difficult to detect and can go undetected for a long time. These types of leaks, no matter how small, can lead to serious water intrusion and mold. Hidden water problems can lead to hidden mold problems. Bathtubs, toilets, and sinks must be in good working order, well caulked, and crack free. These bathroom and kitchen fixtures are one of the leading causes of water problems and mold.
Sprinklers that water your lawn and flower beds must be aligned properly so that they don’t hit the side of your home and cause wet exterior walls, pooling, and ponding. All of these can lead to moisture and mold problems.
Sinks, tubs, and showers, must be well sealed to prevent water intrusion in the surrounding building materials.
If trees, plants, and/or shrubs are in contact with your exterior walls, you might be allowing water into your home or business. This vegetation will block out sunlight required to dry exterior walls. Walls that are wet are a breeding ground for mold growth.
Don’t sell real property with undisclosed water or mold issues or risk selling property with a possible mold or moisture problem. Engage Mold Inspection Sciences to perform a mold inspection to reduce your liability.
Don’t consider buying property with existing mold problems. This could reduce the value of the property, subject the occupants to mold related health problems, force you to pay large mold remediation costs, and could make the property difficult to insure or sell.
A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home
Mr. Craig Cooper was punctual. He listened and observed. Then, he explained what he was going to do. As he performed the testing procedures, he patiently explained what he was doing and why. At the end of the inspection, he indicated that the analytical results would be completed by Wednesday. The report was emailed on that date and was followed up by a telephone call which explained the results in detail.
