Home Buyers and mold in Charleston

Buying a home? Congratulations! Buying a home can be a daunting task, but those with health concerns, asthma or allergies, particularly mold allergies, should be cautious.

The Lowcountry is a wonderful place to live, but environment is conducive to indoor mold. Add in an HVAC system that may or may not properly regulate humidity, a naturally ventilated crawl space and/or attic, or ductwork located in the crawl space and/or attic, and you have a recipe for mold.

Almost all mold situations can be effectively addressed with permanent long-term results, but it is better to know before you buy. GLS Engineering can perform a pre-purchase mold screening to give you peace of mind to move forward; or if a concern arises, allow you to address the situation with the seller and our professional guidance.

If mold or moisture has been discovered during a home inspection, and recommendations were made to have the situation investigated further or evaluated by a qualified professional, GLS Engineering is here to help.

If you are looking for South Carolina mold testing, call GLS Engineering at 843-881-4803, or fill out our online request form.
