Mold Damage Inspection

Looking for a new home in Carol Stream is an exciting process. There are many houses to choose from, and it is thrilling to finally find the one that's perfect for you and your family. Like any savvy house-hunter, you understand the importance of getting a thorough home inspection before purchasing a house. Have you considered getting a mold damage inspection too? A specialized fungal inspection is worth the investment.

There is one major problem with mold damage in Carol Stream homes for sale; it is easy to hide. All a seller has to do is paint over the patches of growth to ensure they hidden until long after you exchange paperwork and the home is yours.

SERVPRO recommends keeping an eye out for evidence of mold growth when you inspect a potential new house. Black or green patches and an unmistakable musty smell are sure signs that there is fungus growing in a house.

However, it is not always possible to see mold with the naked eye, and as we said, it is easy to cover temporarily. Home inspectors and estate agents are not experts on the fungus, which is why some house-hunters choose to have specialist mold damage inspection. A mold inspector knows all the right tricks for searching out mold, so you know before purchase whether there is a fungal issue in the building.

What happens if you move into a new home and discover mold growing in it? It is better to deal with mold damage sooner rather than later. The best course of action is to call SERVPRO. Our IICRC-certified mold remediation experts are waiting to assist you.

Our team arrives equipped with moisture probes and meters to assess the extent of the problem. We set up containment to make sure spores cannot spread further into your home and set to work wiping, scraping, and HEPA vacuuming to remove the visible fungal growth. We also use dehumidifiers to lower the moisture level and reduce the risk of regrowth.
