Many Atlanta-area home buyers are tempted to rush the home-inspection process and skip mold testing in order to keep the transaction moving forward. However, by cutting this specialty home inspection, you could be missing important information in your home-buying process. Here are three reasons why Phil, Joyce, and the team at ProTech Home & Property Inspections, Inc. recommend a mold inspection.
1. Protect your investment.
Buying a house—your own little piece of Georgia land—is a big deal. You want to safeguard your real-estate purchase by gathering as much information as you can about the property. Because mold can result in property damage, get that information before you finalize your purchase.
2. Avoid pricey fixes.
No one wants to buy a home, only to discover a few months later that it has a mold issue (or possibly bigger concerns like leaks that are causing the moisture problem). You can save yourself big dollar signs by checking for mold now and either renegotiating your contract or walking away.
3. Stay healthy.
The top reason Phil, Joyce, and the ProTech team recommend a mold inspection is your health. According to the U.S. Environmental Protect Agency, exposure to mold can have both immediate and long-term effects on your and your family’s health. Mold is especially problematic if you or someone living in your home is sensitive to it.
The best way to avoid these concerns is to get a mold inspection before you move in. Our mold-testing process is thorough, and our inspectors work with you to get you the final report you need in a timely manner.
