Mold and Asbestos
Mold can be anywhere - both in the new properties and in the old ones, regardless of the nature of the use of the property: residential, commercial, institutional, etc. Moisture caused by lack of ventilation or water leakage creates ideal conditions for mold growth. The only way to deal with mold is to determine where they are, what may cause them, how much damage they cause and how to clean them completely.

The results of these tests and recommendations will be contained in a report that will be provided as a result of the inspection process.
