I’m always amazed when I talk to a realtor that tells me they passed on a property that has mold, odor or other issues. What appears to be a major problem that will keep a property from selling is normally something that can easily be fixed at a reasonable cost and be a win-win situation for everyone involved. I always tell them…don’t pass up a listing just because of mold. Call us because we have not had a property yet that we weren’t able to take care of yet.
Mold only needs 4 things to grow: Water/High Humidity (above 50%), Temperature (68 degrees or higher) and an organic Food Source (paper, drywall, wood) and can grow in 24-72 hours. Mold can cause major damage and loss of value to a home as well as cause health concerns to its occupants.
Mold is a natural part of our environment and it is EVERYwhere, even inside of our homes. Mold becomes a concern when it is at “elevated” levels inside of a home or building and it can cause the following ailments to occupants of the property.
