The Warning Signs of Mold explained by your Baltimore Mold Removal Company

Don’t let harmful mold grow into a bigger problem than it has to in your home. Because mold can grow on virtually any surface, from wood to tile to carpeting to paper, it can seem as though nothing can stop it. However, if you know the warning signs of mold, you can head off the multitude of issues that it can cause in your home and family.

In order to help you catch mold from the start, Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems has listed the top warning signs you should be on the lookout for, starting with…

-Visible mold growth

If you see it, you better believe it. Mold will often appear either as a discoloration in the surface on which it is growing, or there will be a noticeable, fuzzy texture. A mold remediation company should be called as soon as visible mold is identified.

Musty odors

An unusual smell in our home can indicate many things: a gas leak, a spill, or garbage that needs to be removed. However a particularly musty odor could mean you’ve got mold; an expert can advise you as to whether or not it is.

-Water damage

Mold loves to grow in damp environments. If your home has recently gone through a flood or a burst pipe, the damage left by the water could foster a growth of mold.

Health problems

Mold can cause an abundance of health problems, notably congestion, coughing, respiratory difficulty, sore throat, and skin irritation. If you or your family are experiencing any of these symptoms and cannot find an explanation, it could be because of mold.

-Water-retaining areas

Due to poor drainage or leaking, some areas in your home may appear wet after it rains. If you can identify many of these areas, mold might not be far behind. Mold experts, such as those at Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, should be contacted immediately.

For quality care and attention paid to your mold concerns, look no further than Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems. We have the tools to ensure you and your family are safe, secure, and 100% mold-free.

Real Estate Tips: The Consequences of Failing to Disclose Mold

When selling your home, you have a legal obligation to disclose material defects, including leaks, damage to the property, and, of course, mold.

Failing to Disclose Mold

As a seller, if you fail to disclose mold or other issues that would adversely affect a person’s decision to purchase the property, you are actively committing fraud. Furthermore, when you fail disclose issues, you can be held liable for damages sustained by the buyer.

Selling your Home “As is”

Many homeowners are under the impression that selling a home “as is” and inserting this clause into the agreement frees them from any future liability. Well, we hate to burst your bubble, but this could not be any further from the truth. Selling a home “as is” simply means that you will not make any repairs before the sale of a property. It does not free you from your legal obligation to disclose issues, such as mold.

If future issues, like mold, are discovered and it is determined that you, the seller, knew of the defect or defects at the time of the sale you will be held liable.

Dealing with Mold

Does your home have mold? Do yourself a favor; instead of having to disclose a mold problem, have it remediated. This will not only save you the headache of having to disclose such a major issues, but it will also make your home much easier to sell!
