Cleaning mold out of a house can be pricey. Like termites, it is usually not just one small part of the house. It could have grown all throughout depending how long it has been sitting there. If it is mold just on the surface of course you can take care of it on a Sunday afternoon. If the problem is much bigger than a Sunday afternoon then it’s time to hire an expert. It will be worth the high cost. Make sure you get in writing after a thorough inspection that all the mold is gone. Use extreme caution during this process using masks, gloves and the proper cleaning equipment to prevent from getting ill if you try it on your own but that is highly not recommended. Avoiding the risks of doing it yourself may be worth it alone in hiring a professional.

If you are considering listing with an agent consider the types of buyers you’ll attract. Most will be looking for a place that is move in ready. Meaning no repairs or work will be needed when buying. Have a full inspection and/or an appraisal done to disclose all necessary repairs and before anyone looks at the house, buyers must be aware there is mold present. Your Realtor should assist with this to make sure trouble doesn’t come back with any legal or health issues to anyone coming in and out of the house.
