When Should You Inspect for Mold

No one wants to live in a home with mold. This substance can cause health concerns and reduce the value of your house. Certain instances call for a mold inspection to give you peace of mind or help you know what you’re up against.

Purchasing a House

Anytime you buy a home, you should order mold testing. Make sure you hire a professional company with the right experience and tools to do a proper job.

After Water Damage

Mold often develops after a flood or steady, long-term leak. If you detect water damage in your home, call a mold remediation team to look for any signs of mold in the walls, ceiling and floor of the affected area.

What are the limitations
on an inspection?

A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
