Mold Can Affect Houses No Matter The Age

Posted in Blog on March 18th, 2014 by Hunter Adams

When looking for homes, it is typical for buyers to think that the newer the home, the less likely it is to have problems, but sometimes, that’s not the case.

Does Your New Home Have Mold?

Even if you buy your home brand new, that doesn’t mean that mold can’t have found itself a place to thrive. If the conditions are right, no matter the age of your home, mold can begin to grow.

Older homes are more susceptible to mold because of the chances that wear and damage has allowed leaks or moisture to invade areas of the home, but that doesn’t mean that your starter home can’t have mold, too.

Building a home takes an average of six to nine months, giving moisture plenty of time to find it’s way into your home through unsecured or cracked pipes, unfinished roofing and misaligned windows, as well as many other potential contamination causes.

Whether your home is new or old, it is important to have mold inspections done to ensure that your home is a healthy, safe place for you and your loved ones to live.
