The professionals of GreenSoft Group always conduct a visual inspection (top to bottom) to verify if there is a visible mold problem. This is the best way to discover any mold serious concerns. Some dark areas may look like mold, but it takes a professional eye, testing, and first-hand sight to confirm a mold threat.
If you are planning to sell your home in Planifeld, IL; always get a mold inspector to check for potential mold threats. Banks, buyers, and the required home inspection highlight potential mold concerns, even if the dark spot isn't mold. It takes a Certified Mold Inspector to evaluate the threat or existance of mold, and suggest the best way to resolve the issue BEFORE you invite buyers to consider buying the house.
When buying a new home, I strongly advise a complete mold inspection. Mold is insidious, hiding in dark and little-known areas; but always ready to spread to more and more areas over time. It can start from something as simple as a sweating or leaky water pipe, sewer line, or small crack around the windows.
As an experienced mold inspector, I have seen only the rare case of toxic mold (or Black Mold) in the Plainfield area. But, the rise of toxigenci mold seems to be increasing. This may be the result of a spat of vacant homes during the last eight years due to foreclosures, or the aging of area homes. Nonetheless, no one should take the presence or smell of mold lightly. While, many mold types are generally allergenic, some are toxigenic. In other words they can make you sick.
As an independent mold inspector, we often encounter the "Post Free Inspection" issues of clients. Logic must tell us that "No one works for free", so how does a mold inspector take the time, buy the gas, and pay his bills to offer free mold inspections through the area? This is literally impossible, yet many Plainfield residents fall for the free mold inspection scam.
We constantly hear of various mold inspection firms invoking "Black Mold" scare tactics. Well, here's the truth. Black mold is rare, but it is dangerous if it is found. Moeny mold types are black, green, brown; but color is not the determination of Black Mold.
Mold, even small areas of mold, can be a health concern. Mold in Aurora is fairly common for several reasons. Older Aurora homes may have issues not considered when they were built. With a river flowing through, hills and valleys, and seasonal weather change; mold in Aurora is very common. Older homes did not require footer drains, water runoff planning, and more advanced building safeguards.
