Mold is one of of the most dangerous issues that can be found in homes. It is imperative to inspect a home for mold before selling or purchasing a house. Even if you suspect your current home has mold, you should have it assessed the air quality tested. Mold is dangerous, can cause serious illnesses in adults, children, and pets; and unfortunately is difficult to find by the average homeowner. We encourage all homeowners to have their houses checked for mold by a professional, and here’s why:
Mold is Dangerous
Maryland receives a lot of rain and is humid in the summer, it is a state that is prone to mold. Mold spores are invisible and tiny; they hide in cracks and spaces on your property that you can’t see. Without proper testing, you may not even know that mold exists, so it could be silently causing breathing issues and sickness in your home.
Just some of the health issues connected to mold are:
- Irritated Eyes
- sinus infections
Can New Homes Have Mold?
If you think that just because a home is new that mold can’t be an issue, think again. 30% of new homes in Maryland have some form of mold.
