The planning and construction of a new home can be as stressful as it is exhilarating. There are many important details to consider. From start to finish, it can take more than a year to see your plans materialize. Once your home is complete, building inspectors will assess your newly constructed dwelling and certify your home suitable for occupancy.
Since everything in the home is new and installed by industry professionals, most owners of a newly-constructed residence assume their long-awaited home will easily pass that final inspection. More often than you might realize, building inspectors discover mold in newly constructed homes. It's important to be aware of the fact that mold infestation can occur during any phase of the construction process. Since spores are always present, construction projects allow ample opportunity for mold to thrive.
