How Mold Affects Home Value in Minnesota

Home Mold Value

Mold hurts value. Even clean homes can have mold, and finding mold could end a potential sale.

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 removal 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.

Complete Basement Systems of MN specializes in mold prevention in Greater Minneapolis. As the area's local company for mold inspection and prevention methods, we are well aware of the effects that a flood or fire can have on a property. If the problem is not dealt with in a timely manner, the threat of mold can become an issue.

If you recently had water damage or a fire in your home or business and are worried about a potential mold problem, or you think you may already have mold growth, contact the experts at Complete Basement Systems of MN today for a complete analysis on how to prevent mold in your home. We serve Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Rochester and the nearby Greater Minneapolis area of Minnesota.

Ways to prevent mold and keep it from coming back

We can suggest a number of ways to keep your home mold-free:

  • Disposal of materials that support mold growth
  • Waterproofing your basement or crawlspace
  • Installation of an effective and automatic basement or crawlspace dehumidifier
  • Insulation of pipes and ducts to reduce condensation
  • Improved ventilation at sources of moisture, including kitchen and bathroom vents
  • High performance HVAC filters and whole-house air cleaners

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.
