Don’t let these words hit your SELLERS Home Inspection Report.
“GROWTH” … “MOLD”
You know what a hassle it is to sell a property that the inspection report comes back with the words “GROWTH” on it describing the crawl space condition. I have heard buyers wanting entire duct systems cleaned if not replaced for just a few spots of mold seen on a crawl space joist!
The Sealed Solution Team wants to be your “Valued Business Partner” and want to increase your Buyers Agent Value Proposition by allowing Sealed Solution to due a PRE Home Inspection Inspection.
We can give you an honest opinion and if need be take care affordably any incidents that might trigger an inspector to have concern. Many times I simply move a few pieces of vapor barrier and put back in place and put up the few pieces of fallen insulation. I don’t charge a little assist which your Seller will appreciate. Many times it simply moving the temporary plastic back in place or possibly adding a few pieces of vapor barrier to ensure the inspector gives a thumbs up! At $.40 a sq foot most services like this are only $100-$200 investment at cost paying for labor and materials.
Maybe for lightly moldy crawls the Team can do a quick sponge wipe to eliminate the appearance of mold. Sometimes on more moldy crawls a simple sealing of the crawl floor (video) WITHOUT pulling the insulation and sanitizing and replacing insulation on the walls.
Some Selling clients who know their crawl is a humid moldy mess and don’t want that on the report to slow down the Buyers progress so they will do a complete sanitizing of the crawl, pulling all old moldy dirty insulation down and re-insulating the walls (video).
