Why is a mold inspection important?
When purchasing a new home, there are many factors to consider, such as location and size. However, it’s important to also think about the air quality in the home. Mold spores can grow in damp or humid areas, and they can release toxins that can be harmful to your health. Therefore, it’s recommended to have an air quality test for mold spores done during a home inspection
With a mold spore test, you can identify potential problems with the air quality in the home. If mold spores are detected, you can take steps to address the issue before it becomes a bigger problem. This can include finding the source of the moisture and removing any mold that’s present. In addition to protecting your health, having an air quality test for mold spores can also save you money in the long run. If mold is present, it can damage the structure of the home over time, which can be expensive to repair and can lower the value of the home.
