Does Your Home Have Mold?
No word strikes more fear in today’s health-conscience homeowner or home buyer than hearing this four-letter word.
The fact is that nearly every home in America has mold in one form or another growing inside the living area. Mold can be found in moist bathrooms and even on older bread. Mold can often be found anywhere in a home where moisture and temperature conditions make it conducive for growth. I have tested for mold and found it growing in nearly every part of a home — from HVAC ducts to attics, basements and crawl spaces. I have also found mold growing in many bedrooms. This is where a person spends the majority of his or her time inside the home!
What kind of mold do you have growing in your bedroom?
What Is Mold?
Mold has been on Earth since the beginning of time. The term, “mold,” typically refers to fungi that grow in the form of multi-cellular thread-like structures called hyphae. Fungi that exist as single cells are yeasts.
In a typical home inspection report, a home inspector will not and cannot identify mold – without performing a mold test. Instead, home inspectors will often write in reports that they have found “biological growth with mold-like properties.”
