How Mold Affects Home Value

How Mold Can Affect Home Value

Home Mold Value

Mold hurts value. Even clean homes can have mold, and finding mold could end a potential sale.

When you’re trying to sell your home, little things can make a big difference. Potential buyers may be turned off by some minor rot on a post in the crawlspace or a little mildew at the bottom of a bedroom closet. Or perhaps they don’t see any mold at all, but their noses tell them something is amiss.

The savvy home buyer, suspecting mold contamination, may ask for a mold inspection from a professional mold testing and remediation company. If serious mold contamination is discovered, it can derail the transaction or, at the very least, provide a reason for a reduced sale price.

Take Action Now

Avoid the issue entirely by addressing your mold problem now. Baxter Restoration offers visual inspections as well as testing for the presence of mold and can outline a mold abatement plan for your home. We will isolate contaminated areas, sanitize, and then retest to be sure we’ve solved the problem. In addition, we’ll suggest other actions you can take to ensure the problem doesn’t recur. They include:

  • Disposal of materials that support mold growth
  • Waterproofing your basement or crawlspace
  • Installation of an effective and automatic basement or crawlspace dehumidifier
  • Insulation of pipes and ducts to reduce condensation
  • Improved ventilation at sources of moisture, including kitchen and bathroom vents
  • High performance HVAC filters and whole-house air cleaners

Contact us for an Estimate and inspection. We can eliminate unwanted mold from your home – and keep it from coming back!

Don’t wait until you list your home

If you suspect you have a mold problem, don’t wait until your house is on the market to fix it. Real estate agents recommend taking care of problems like this long before you begin price negotiations. They point out that you will likely pay more if you procrastinate. Not only may the problem worsen, but lengthy periods on the market invariably lead to a lower sales price than your house would otherwise deserve. In addition, fixing a problem at the last moment typically costs more than having the job done beforehand – when you can negotiate the best price from a mold removal company. Beside, if you rid your home of mold now, you can enjoy your remaining time in your home knowing you’ve cleared the air of mold spores that can affect your health and the health of your family.
