|Mold can result from water intrusion that is not quickly removed and the area thoroughly dried out. Some types of mold are classified as significant hazards to the health of occupants. Thus when evidence of moisture is found during an inspection, the buyer is advised to hire a licensed mold inspection company to conduct a thorough sampling of the suspected areas and testing to identify the types of mold, if any. |
For a discussion of mold, please read the information provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
