Importance of a Kelowna Mold Inspection

Buying a property is a big step and comes with great responsibility. Whether it’s a home or commercial property, some serious issues can emerge and make your life difficult. Mold, for example, is one of the problems that can affect your health or your business. What’s even worse about it is that it is difficult to detect. It comes in a variety of colors, and it is not easy to see. To prevent having to deal with all of these concerns, the best solution would be having an assessment for the property you intend to buy. You can easily prevent risking your health and your wealth by hiring one of our trained specialists that can make you aware of the existence of mold or other problems.

Breathing in mold spores and the toxins that come with it can seriously damage your health.

How does Mold Affect You?

Living in an environment affected by mold can have a serious impact on your health. It affects especially people with pre-existing respiratory illnesses, like asthma, and allergies. It can lead to nasal stuffiness, irritated eyes, skin irritation and other more severe reactions, such as fever, infections of the lung, and chronic sinus infections.

Infants, children, and elderly people are the most sensible to these risks. It can also pose severe economic issues by damaging property and creating significant costs. For these reasons, it is important to have a Kelowna home inspection before purchasing a property. If you find out the property is affected by mold, you can either get a better price and fix it or walk away and try to find a more suitable option.

Mold Inspections and Treatments

An inspection is a simple, but essential task that should be performed before making such an important decision. Our trained inspector will examine carefully the property and will detect problems. This type of issue can be found behind a drywall, on the back side of the wallpaper, above ceiling tiles, underneath the carpet, inside pipe chases and ductwork or anywhere else there is moisture.

It is possible to remove the spores once you have detected it. It can be done by using sunlight and ventilation, cleaners, dehumidifiers or other fundamental remedies. Sometimes, even if the mold is dead, it can still cause problems because it still releases toxins. That is why it is recommended to ask for a specialist’s help. It can involve actions such as dry ice blasting or removing the affected building materials.
