How Mold Affects Home Value in Arizona
When you’re trying to sell your home, little things can make a big difference. Potential buyers may be turned off by some minor rot on a post in the crawlspace or a little mildew at the bottom of a bedroom closet. Or perhaps they don’t see any mold at all, but their noses tell them something is amiss.
The savvy home buyer, suspecting mold contamination, may ask for a mold inspection from a professional mold testing and remediation company. If serious mold contamination is discovered, it can derail the transaction or, at the very least, provide a reason for a reduced sale price.

Ways to prevent mold and keep it from coming back
Avoid the issue entirely by addressing your mold problem now. ServiceMaster Critical Recovery offers visual inspections, as well as testing for the presence of mold, and can outline a mold abatement plan for your home. We will isolate contaminated areas, sanitize, and then retest to be sure we’ve solved the problem. In addition, we’ll suggest other actions you can take to ensure the problem doesn’t recur. They include:
Don’t wait until you list your home to deal with the mold
If you suspect you have a mold problem, don’t wait until your house is on the market to fix it. Real estate agents recommend taking care of problems like this long before you begin price negotiations. They point out that you will likely pay more if you procrastinate. Not only may the problem worsen, but lengthy periods on the market invariably lead to a lower sales price than your house would otherwise deserve.
In addition, fixing a problem at the last moment typically costs more than having the job done beforehand – when you can negotiate the best price from a mold removal company. Besides, if you rid your home of mold now, you can enjoy your remaining time in your home knowing you’ve cleared the air of mold spores that can affect your health and the health of your family.
