Can You Sell a House with Mold? It would be up to the buyer, but why take the chance!
Ask yourself, if you were a buyer, knowing or not knowing, would this affect your decision of buying the home? Could it affect your decision?
A mold remediation specialist removes and cleans mold colonies and excessive mold growth, returning the air humidity in your home to what’s considered acceptable.
Mold remediation involves using anti-fungal and antimicrobial cleaners on hard surfaces; sending removable soft surfaces such as sofa cushions and curtains out for cleaning; and replacing porous surfaces such as drywall. The area also is dried with fans and dehumidifiers, then sealed with plastic and negative air pressure.
When getting ready to put your house on the market, it’s not uncommon for sellers to spend an average of two months on repairs and improvement projects. As you walk through your home, take a room-by-room inventory of what might need to be done. While noting down peeling paint or carpet that’s pulling up, don’t forget to glance up at your lighting.
