Mold Sampling Home Inspection Orchards WA

Mold in a home can cause numerous health problems for homeowners and their families. The presence of mold isn’t always readily visible, and the moisture that facilitates it can go undetected. Slopeside Home Inspections is certified to test homes for mold to help ensure they are a healthy living environment.

When mold causes property damage and presents health hazards, it can spread on walls and ceilings, or on and under floors, in a widespread and visible fashion; or, it can go undetected when it crops up inside of walls, attics, closets and cabinets.

Potential mold trouble spots in a home can include crawl spaces, basements, and attics, when insufficient ventilation and high humidity create the optimal environments for mold to grow. Other possible mold locations are the interior and exterior edges of windows and along window trim where condensation accumulates, as well as behind exterior wall siding where cracks allow water to enter the home, slowly, over time. Rooms with water sources, such as kitchens, bathrooms, pantries, utility rooms, or garages, are hot spots for mold if plumbing, faucets, pipes, or appliances leak and contribute to an environment that allows mold growth to become established.

Some of the symptoms that can result from exposure to mold can range from nose, throat, and lung irritations to itchy skin or eyes. If hay fever symptoms exhibit themselves, outside of the hay fever season, but when inside your home, that can be a sign that mold is present.

Including mold testing with a home inspection can be helpful. Mold that spreads can make a home dangerous to live in. If mold is present, it can be costly to both remove the mold and repair the affected structures.
