Many Charlotte-area commercial building buyers are tempted to rush the inspection process and skip the mold testing in order to move forward quickly or to save some money. However, by cutting this environmental inspection, you could be missing important information in your building-buying process. Here are three reasons why the experts at America’s Choice Commercial Building Inspections, LLC recommend adding a mold inspection to your testing.
1. Protect Your InvestmentBuying a commercial building is a big deal. You want to safeguard your real-estate purchase by gathering as much information as you can about the property. Because mold can result in property damage, it’s important to get that information before you finalize your purchase.
2. Avoid Pricey RepairsNo one wants to buy a commercial building, only to discover a few months later that it has a mold issue (or possibly an even bigger issue, like leaks that are causing the moisture problem). You can save yourself a lot of money by checking for mold now and either renegotiating your contract or walking away.
3. Stay Healthy
The top reason we recommend a mold inspection is for your health and the health of potential employees or tenants in your commercial building. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, exposure to mold can have both immediate and long-term effects on your health. Mold is especially problematic if you or someone living or working in your building is sensitive to it.
The best way to avoid these concerns is to get a mold inspection before you sign the contract for your new building. Our mold testing process is thorough, and our inspectors work with you to get you the final report you need in a timely manner.
