The Importance of Mold Testing Before Buying a Property

Updated: Jan 12

Can you believe that almost 670,000 homes were sold in Canada last year? This has led to a whole new record for the real estate market.

Mold Testing

If you've been swept up by the home-buying fever, you might feel nothing but excitement. While it's great to be enthusiastic, you should also approach home-buying with some caution. For instance, before signing on the dotted line, you should get mold testing done.

Are you on the fence about whether it's necessary or not? Keep reading this blog to learn all about the importance of mold testing before buying a property.

Why Invest in Mold Testing?

The major reason to test mold is to protect the health of your loved ones. Black mold and other kinds can spread throughout the house and become airborne. It won't take too long for the spores to wreak havoc on your family's health.

Don't forget that a house with mold doesn't have much resale value. If you're paying the full price for a home that happens to have mold in it, you won't be able to get much for your investment later. Instead, the value will continue to decline until you address the issue.

Since mold inspections don't take too long and aren't that costly, inspect the mold before buying the house and make sure your investment is worth it.

How Does Mold Testing Work?

A professional can test for mold by taking samples from the three main areas where mold can proliferate. These include surfaces, such as the walls, the dust around your home, and even the air. From the roof to the windows, mold can grow in any place that has moisture.

If any mold is found in your home, Mold Solutions Canada will handle the mold removal process with expertise.
