New Jersey Home Inspections and Mold
New Jersey home inspections and mold often go hand in hand. A home inspection is not, however, a mold inspection. A home inspection is an important part of the home buying process and as such reveals the health of a home. While some home inspection companies strictly adhere to the basics others do have certified mold testers. Regardless a NJ home inspector may be able to detect the presence of mold and recommend further examination by a certified mold inspector to determine how widespread the problem is in a home.
The presence of home can become pervasive as a result of the fact that some mold is invisible. Black mold is most commonly seen in bathrooms, kitchens, and areas of a home where damp environments exist. It is the invisible mold and the spores reproducing in the air that can lead mold growth. While not everyone is allergic to mold it can cause health issues when breathed into the lungs on a consistent basis.
If your New Jersey home inspector notes the presence of mold in your home it is always best to have it further examined by a certified mold inspector. Understanding the health of a home is essential for the health and safety of its occupants. Take the time to sit down with your home inspector to go through the checklist after the inspection.
