Discovering mold during a home inspection can be unsettling, but understanding what happens next can help you navigate the situation smoothly.


Here’s what you need to know:

  • Assessment

The inspector will identify the presence of mold and determine its extent and severity.

  • Report:

You’ll receive a detailed report outlining the findings, including the location and type of mold.

  • Recommendations:

Based on the inspection results, the inspector may suggest further evaluation by a mold specialist.

  • Negotiation:

If mold is found, it’s common to negotiate with the seller for remediation or a reduction in the home’s price to cover the cost of treatment.

  • Remediation:

Once an agreement is reached, the mold remediation process can begin. This involves removing the mold and addressing the underlying cause to prevent future growth.

  • Re-inspection:

After remediation, a follow-up inspection may be necessary to ensure the mold has been effectively removed.
