If you choose to hire a contractor (or other professional service provider) to do the cleanup, make sure the contractor has experience cleaning up mold. Check references and ask the contractor to follow the recommendations in EPA's Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings, or the guidelines of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists.
If you suspect that the heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC) system may be contaminated with mold, consult the EPA's Should You Have the Air Ducts in Your Home Cleaned? before taking further action. Do not run the HVAC system if you know or suspect that it is contaminated with mold - it could spread mold throughout your home.
If the water and/or mold damage was caused by sewage or other contaminated water, then call in a professional who has experience cleaning and fixing buildings damaged by contaminated water.
Pre-Purchase Inspection for Buyers
In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention.
Pre-Listing Inspection for Sellers
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a Realtor®, it’s always a great idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: we help you evaluate your home and decide which issues, if any, may require immediate attention and which issues can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation. See our Inspection Overview for more details.
New Construction Inspection
Building a new home is quite an undertaking, even for the builder as there are so many facets of construction to oversee. Unfortunately it is not uncommon for there to be small but important details that were overlooked and rarely, but in some cases there can be some significant deficiencies that have gotten by everyone involved in the building of that home. Buyers can have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process including foundation, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and helps to assure the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
