Asbestos is a mineral that has natural properties that is excellent for insulation and fire resistance. As a result, it was commonly used from 1940s up till the 1970s. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause respiratory diseases and cancers. Asbestos was applied in pipe insulation, roofing, wallboards, flooring ceiling tiles, and thousands of different building materials. It might not be a problem if it remains in good conditions. However, if disturbed, the fibrous particles may be released into the environment and inhaled. If a home buyer discovers any adding asbestos material, or the buyer intends to renovate, an asbestos testing by professionals should be done.
Mold lurks in many places in a home. It can be found in floors, walls, ceilings, under the sink, under carpeting, and other sites. Mold thrives in moist areas such as in the vicinity of leaking pipes and previously flooded basements that did not dry. Mold exposure causes health problems such as asthma, allergies, and other serious health issues. A home inspector will look out for a musty odor or check for visible mold signs. If they do not see or smell anything, they will assume there is no problem. This is where a certified mold inspector makes the difference. If you purchase a home in winter, mold will be inactive until humidity and heat is present, and then the house will have a mold infestation.
