Gerard Dunn answered:
The mold inspection report of the property I inspected shows a high spor count in the air, eventhough no trace of mold in ceiling/wall.
Check with the firm that did the test to get an explanation.

There are many types of mold - and spore counts can be misleading.

EXPERT advice is important - check with the pros.

Does curb appeal affect resale?
Needhome,

You bet, curb appeal is the next step of getting people into the home after PRICE and location. No price, no location, no curb appeal equals........no sale!
