Rain, rain, go away...

As the rainy season continues in Kansas City, you may end up with some water in your basement. Regardless of how the water found its way into your home, just sucking it up or drying it out may not be enough for your family's health.

Moisture often leads to the development of mold, even in the cleanest of homes. You can't clean what you can't see, and if water has gotten in behind paneling, drywall, or in the attic, you may not even know that it is there. Wet carpeting, wet drywall, and other items damaged by incoming water can develop mold spores. And that can end up sickening your family.

Once the water has been dried, it's a good idea to do a mold test. The test itself takes only a couple of minutes and you'll have a complete result report back from the lab in just a few days. It's a rather inexpensive way to get peace of mind regarding your family's respiratory health.

Housing Market

As today's housing market continues to rebound, a home inspection becomes even more important for your peace of mind as you buy a property.

Foreclosures may offer you a great deal, but the condition of the property often deteriorates rapidly as the house is offered for sale. Water in basements is common as the home is left unattended. Vandalism often occurs as the previous owners vacate the house. And hidden problems that arise from the house being vacant often don't show up until utilities, such as the water, are turned back on.

To get an idea of what kind of a "deal" you are actually getting in today's market, let us completely inspect the property for you. Then you will know the condition of the house at the time of the inspection and understand exactly what you're getting into.
