Are you considering investing in a new home in Connecticut? It’s an exciting prospect, but a stressful one, too. There’s the endless paperwork and the surprise costs. And always at least one unexpected setback. 

Don’t let mold be the setback that causes you even more undue stress. Having your potential new home inspected for mold may not seem like a necessary thing, until you realize that the inspection that is legally required when buying a home does not include mold inspection. We strongly suggest that you have a mold inspection performed before you sign your closing documents. Investing your life savings in your dream home only to discover that it has a large and costly mold infestation would be a nightmare. Not to mention that it is becoming increasingly more common for Connecticut banks to require a mold inspection be performed before granting a home loan. Particularly for bank-owned homes.

Why Is Mold A Concern When Purchasing A New Home?

Whether your home is new construction or an older building, odds are it will sit empty for a bit. When someone moves out of a home, they switch their utilities to their new home or cancel them entirely. That means that the home will sit, getting warm and humid. Any small leaks or seepage will go unchecked, creating a breeding ground for mold. Even if the home was clean and safe when the previous owners were there, it could be hosting mold when you move in. If you are considering purchasing a home, calling Mold Test USA for a thorough mold inspection is a smart step.

 

Is All Mold Toxic?

No. A common misconception about mold is that all of it is harmful to your health. Unless you are allergic to mold, non-toxic molds are not a real cause for alarm. However, if you have recently moved into a new home and have noticed cold and flu like symptoms, respiratory issues, or rashes and/or other skin irritations, you may be experiencing mold illness symptoms. While some signs of mold illness present like common respiratory issues, some symptoms are more subtle and, in some cases, far scarier. Prolonged exposure to toxic molds, like Stachybotrys, commonly called black mold, can cause severe and lasting neurological damage.

Preventing mold illness is easy if proper steps are taken. If you are buying a new home, or recognize any of these symptoms while living in your current home, call Mold Test USA now.
