For many people, buying a home will be the single most expensive thing they purchase during their lifetimes
With that kind of expenditure, most people expect a home free of problems. That’s why it is critical to make sure your home inspector checks for mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can cause considerable damage and in places not easy to see. If not properly taken care of, mold and mildew can mean instant repair bills for new home owners.
Here are 10 places a home inspector (and potential home owner) should check for mold and mildew before closing on a new home.
- Cold cellars
- Behind furniture that is directly against a wall for an extended period of time
- Surrounding areas of any plumbing
- Outside walls
- Storage areas
