If you happen to look in an attic and it looks like someone painted all the framing, you may have had mold remediation done.
After mold remediation is done, most remediators spray on a mold retardant to help prevent the mold from growing back.
A word of caution though, this is not always mold remediation work. Sometimes it is fire/smoke remediation which is an entirely different problem. Be sure to get proper documentation from the sellers as to what happened.
I see a lot of stuff on home inspections - leaking roofs, structural issues, environmental issues, and electrical hazards (just to name a few). But a missing door knob?
We obviously put it in the report, but when I find something like this on a home inspection, that usually means there are a lot of small issues like this one. And what does that do? It makes for a really long home inspection report that is full of smaller stuff like this.
If you are a seller, and you want to make the home inspection run soother, be sure to correct items like this and make the home inspection report a lot shorter.
