Mold in your home may not always be visible. It can hide behind walls, under floors, or in your ventilation. There are a lot of different types of molds causing potential health effects. Symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory complaints. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in an indoor environment. The only way to control mold growth indoors is to find the source of the moisture and correct the problem.
One sure way to make sure your home is free of harmful molds is to have a mold test done along with your home inspection. Having a mold test at the same time as your home inspection saves you time and money.
