Rochester MN Home Inspector Uncovers Mold In Basement

In this HomePro home inspector video you will see an example of mold in a basement of a relatively new home. The mold and high moisture was confined to the surface of the front wall of the basement. As I arrived at this home inspection I noticed that there was a large pond built into the landscaping next to the front wall, as well as settling and poor soil slope. These conditions resulted in the wet basement walls. The recommendation to the homeowner was to properly landscape the front of the home to allow for water to flow away from the home. In addition, I recommended that they have professional mold remediation and testing done to resolve the issue.
