A US-BASED mold remediation company recently a survey of its clients to find out what concerned them most about mold.
The survey was easy and contained only one question: “What concerns you most about mold?”
Here are the top three responses:
#1 – “It could make me and my family ill.”
This was the number one response by a big margin. Mold can cause or contribute to a variety of health problems. The company’s clients also commented that this was the compelling reason for enlisting the company to perform a mold inspection of their home or office.
#2 – “It will cause damage to my home or office and could cost a lot of money to remove.”
Mold and moisture problems left neglected can cause significant property damage that are expensive to repair. The best approach is early detection through a proper mold inspection and mold testing.
#3 – “Buying a new home or investment property with a hidden mold problem.”
Purchasing a new home or investment property is stressful. It’s a big commitment and one wants to make certain there are no hidden problems that could cost money in the future. Making a mold inspection part of the due diligence of a purchase will help ensure the home is free of moisture and mold problems.
Now, we haven’t conducted any surveys of our own but this seems about right. Many of our clients call us when the problem has become pretty bad – and therefore expensive to remove. Really it’s best to nip the problem in the bud. If you see something that could be mold, check in with us. We’re happy to give a free phone consultation.
