mold damage we buy houses

What are my options if I find mold in my house?

Mold can be a very serious health risk.  We hear and see more and more these day, families uprooted from there homes and spending small fortunes on mold testing and remediation. The facts are that mold, if left unchecked, can:

Grow and flourish on almost any surface in your home.

Go unnoticed until it reaches toxic levels.

Become airborne (spores) and cause numerous adverse health risks.

While mold is a very common substance and makes up 25% of all the biomass (mass of all living things on earth) when it gets confined and concentrated inside a home, where Americans tend to breath recycled air constantly, it become dangerous and can cause serious mold damage.

Mold tends to thrive in damp dark places.  It is generally causes by some sort of prior water damage that gives it a  good place to flourish.  The inside of walls, pipes and duct-work provide a perfect place for mold to grow unnoticed, especially in Jacksonville, FL where we tend to live in a warm humid climate all year round. You should always have you home checked regularly for mold damage and other safety hazards to the health of you and your loved ones.  BUT IF YOU DO find your home or rental property has a large amount of mold, and you don’t feel like dealing with the hassle… Freedom Home Buyers can help you unload the property with out the hassle of remediation and clean up.

Common Symptoms of Mold Exposure

While not everyone will react to even the most toxic mold in their homes many people will. Reactions vary from person to person even [among] family members. Here are some of the most common physical problems associated with mold exposure:

  • Eye irritation (red, itchy, watery)
  • Nose irritation (itchy, runny, bleeding)
  • Throat irritation (itchy, scratchy, hoarseness)
  • Dermatitis
  • Asthma
  • Respiratory infections or other problems including coughing up blood
  • Fever
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Liver damage
  • Impaired immune system function

All of these symptoms have been observed in individuals who were exposed to mold. Other symptoms may exist… Each person’s reaction to mold largely depends on their current state of health… If you or someone in your family has been suffering with these symptoms but have been unable to find the cause it may be time to consider mold as a factor. The first thing to do is to think about whether or not there have been any floods or leaks in your home before the onset of these symptoms. If so, check the area where the flood or leak was to see if you can visibly detect any mold.

So what’s can you do now?

While mold, if caught early enough, has a good chance of being cleaned up… If it is caught too late the mold damage may require a full renovation and treatment of the structural elements of the home.  If not completely removed, it can simply grow back… effectively wasting all a homeowners time and money to fix the mold damage in the first place.  Furthermore, it can provide additional headaches to landlords, who are  required to provide a safe and healthy living environments to their tenants.  more and more often we see mold infestations turn into lawsuits.
