WHAT IS MOLD?
Mold is a multi-cellular fungus, similar to mushrooms and yeast. Mold can be different colors, and look fuzzy, slimy, or powdery. It often has a musty odor when present in large amounts.
Mold requires three things to grow:
• organic food source (paper, fabric, sheetrock, etc.)
• proper temperature.
The presence of mold means there is too much moisture. Moisture problems can be caused by:
• plumbing leaks
• leaking roofs or windows
• high humidity
• condensation due to poor ventilation or insulation
It is impossible to ‘mold proof’ your house. However, you can manage mold growth by controlling indoor humidity levels and fixing water leakage problems. To prevent mold from coming back in the future, you must fix the underlying source of moisture.
We are Licensed with NY State for mold assessment (License #01499) and are here to help you get to the bottom of your mold issues. We will help you understand IF you have a problem, WHAT the problem really is, HOW bad it is, and WHERE the problem is.
Quick Diagnosis & Results
We care about your home
We are licensed to perform home inspections (Home Inspector License #16000103910). The decision to buy a home, whether it is your very first home, a vacation home, or an investment property, is one of the biggest decisions that people make in their lives.
A Buyer’s Inspection protects potential homebuyers by providing them with information about the home’s condition, maintenance needs, and defects before they enter into a real estate transaction.
We will thoroughly inspect the home’s visible and safely accessible areas for any issues that may sway your decision to purchase. We will assemble all of the information into a detailed home inspection report, which will be your guiding force when it comes to understanding the property and requesting the repairs you want to see completed before finalizing your deal with the seller or realtor.
