3 Advantages Of Having Your Home Inspected For Mold

When you think of a mold invasion, you may imagine it would cover large areas of the ceiling or wall and would be black so you could spot it immediately. Unfortunately, mold spores can be more sneaky than that.

Mold is often not visible in the early stages, especially since it tends to grow in dark, damp areas that you likely don't access regularly. If your bathroom sink is leaking below the cabinet, you might start sneezing excessively in the bathroom but have no idea why.

As such, it can be helpful to enlist some professional help so you don't have to deal with the consequences of hidden mold growth. Here are three of the advantages of having your home inspected for mold.

1. Avoid Health Problems

Mold spores can set off a wide variety of respiratory symptoms, headaches, and brain fog and can even lead to sudden behavioral changes due to negatively altering your mood. 

More so, if you have a pre-existing medical condition, such as asthma, coming into contact with mold could lead to a worsening of your symptoms. 

A mold inspection can help you rule out mold exposure as a cause of any unusual, chronic symptoms that are making you feel ill. This is especially true if you notice that your symptoms resolve when you go on vacation, as it indicates that your home may contain the trigger. 

2. Access Advanced Technology

A professional mold inspector has access to equipment that can assess the moisture levels in your home to see if they are conducive to mold growth, and they can conduct mold testing to provide information on if the mold is toxic or benign. 

This technology can take the guesswork and anxiety out of not knowing if mold is present in your home and, if so, how much of a threat it presents to you and your family. 

3. Catch It Early

Being able to detect mold early is important so that you can prevent it from spreading to other areas of your home. 

Not only is this better for your health, but it also prevents the integrity of your walls and floors from being compromised, which helps maintain your home's value in the long run. 

Part of being a responsible homeowner means that you need to schedule your home for regular checkups, and mold inspections are an essential part of supporting your home's upkeep.

About Me

Don't Overlook Your Home Remodeling Options

When I purchased my first home, I loved it. However, I was soon eager to move on to find a new home that would have an additional bedroom that my aging parents could live in. Once I glanced at the local houses for sale, I quickly realized that there was not one that would fit our needs at a price I could afford. I decided to speak with a local contractor to see if adding an addition to my existing home was possible and if it would fit into my relatively small budget. I was greatly surprised to find out that I could afford the addition and, eventually, my parents were able to move in with me. I learned so much about home remodeling projects during this experience that I am eager to share my advice with others who could use it on my new blog!
