Mold Testing from Champia Home Inspectors
Let Champia Test your Home for Mold
When you find the house of your dreams in Atlanta, Georgia and desire to make it truly your own, you need to make sure that it does not come with unexpected problems. The house must have a good foundation, updated electrical, fully functioning plumbing and other living necessities. What you might not realize is that even if everything looks clean, safe and solid, there could still be a hidden danger lurking. That danger is mold and it is not always obvious to the untrained eye. The competent and reliable professionals at Champia Real Estate Inspections are at your service to perform a thorough home inspection which can include mold testing at your request.
Mold Testing is for your health
The choice to perform mold testing is one for peace of mind and overall family health. Despite preconceptions, mold can exist in the wall of a house even when it is located in one of the driest areas of Atlanta. Evidence of mold in a home is not always visible on the surface of the walls. Numerous companies exist that specialize in cleaning up water damage so even if a house was once affected by some sort of water issue; it is entirely possible that all outward evidence of it has been neatly and thoroughly erased. That does not mean that the threat of mold is gone though. If the property was not adequately dried and any affected insulation and walls properly replaced, mold could still exist.
Mold growth in a home can be very dangerous to the safety and health of your family. Mold spores can aggravate allergies, asthma and other breathing problems and make everyone sick. Do not risk your wellness and the safety of your family. Request a mold test by Champia if you think there’s even the slightest possibility that mold might have existed within the walls. Knowing everything about a home will help you make a well informed purchase decision.
Highly Recommended for Older Homes
A historic home can be a treasure, but an older home has also seen many seasons and elements so it may be susceptible to mold growth. As building codes have changed over years of better building practices and modern materials, many older homes have not received modern updates. As a result, water leaks can create mold growth in the most unlikely of places within your home. The inspectors at Champia have experience and knowledge of proper mold testing techniques and they know what to look for. That dark film you thought was just dust on your basement or foundation wall could very well turn out to be evidence of previous or still present mold growth. Mold must be treated completely to be irradiated and many DIY efforts are simply not enough.
