Question: A contractor bought a former grow house. He has it up and now wants to sell it privately. I have an interest in this home. Is there anyway to ensure that it is safe to live in and will not pose any future health risks? The house was cleaned off mould by a professional company, but because the contractor has done renovations to the home can you still get samples for testing the air, insulation, drywall etc? I guess my concern is that he may be covering up something, and that even though the mould was cleaned up can it re-grow?
Answer: If the house is structurally sound and the mould was properly cleaned up, then it’s unlikely that mould could pose future health risks. You can hire an independent professional to assess the house for mould.
Mould can only re-grow if there are moisture problems that are not corrected on time.
