Mold as soon as I open a door to a home my nose can sniff it. Most of the time I am able to tell my clients to back out the door and they listen. A few times they haven't and we have felt the effects. Mold is not something to be taken lightly. Fortunately I've never entered a home that looks like the one in these photos.
As Michael points out mold needs to be remediated by professionals.
Anybody who has ever dealt with bank owned properties knows that they will be in varying states of disrepair. Oftentimes, this starts while the home is still occupied. Having given up hope, what was once their American Dream has now turned into their American Nightmare.
Deterioration continues as there is no longer a loving or caring person to give the property the TLC and pride of ownership it needs. Instead, a faceless, non caring entity, thousands of miles away, faced with another toxic assent on the books, lets the property degrade even further.
It is not uncommon to find properties such as this with environmental issues that are more damning to deal with as compared to broken windows, rotted trim and updating the floor coverings. Molds, especially toxic varieties, can put the final nail in the coffin on what was once a beautiful home. Costs of remediation can easily run into the thousands. Expendatures that must be factored in, when negotiating with faceless asset managers whose only interest is the bottom line.
Even serious mold issues can be addressed. Home handymen are not trained nor do they have the necessary equipment to tackle jobs of this nature. When interviewing and securing estimates, make sure the company adheres to IAQA protocols. If they don't, look elsewhere. Cheaper is not always better especially when it comes to your health and the heath of your loved ones. Complete Home Inspections "The Guys With the Hats"
