Red alert! The sellers have an unsightly mold problem. Give them the dirt on whether they can eliminate it themselves or need to hire a pro. Share the free November “Get Rid of Mold: DIY or Hire a Pro?” article from the November “Indoor Air Quality: VOCs & Mold” theme now available at the REALTOR® Content Resource. Here’s some of the insight:
Everyday solutions. If you can see it, you probably can get rid of it with a little elbow grease, soap, and water. More stubborn forms usually succumb to a solution of 1:9 bleach-to-water.
Problem mold. If you find spores growing on drywall, studs, and subflooring—especially if the area exceeds 10 square feet—you’ve got a bona fide mold problem. Don’t bother buying a hardware store petri-dish kit, which claims to help identify airborne mold: It doesn’t. Your best bet is an independent consultant with credentials. With new enhancements to the REALTOR® Content Resource, you can now share the “Indoor Air Quality: VOCs & Mold” articles with consumers via Facebook, Twitter, and email directly from the REALTOR® Content Resource.
