What is the real Purpose? Buyer beware!
Along with my basic business of performing residential home inspections and structural pest inspections in Chelan and Okanogan area I also sub-contract to a few agencies and companies to do various other inspections.
This includes foundation certification for manufactured homes, relocation inspections, draw inspections, bank auditory inspections and more.
I had a curious inspection a while back. While working for a relocation company I was performing a moisture/moisture intrusion inspection.
During that inspection I found some fungal growth (mold). The company needed mold samples and the mold re-mediated.
But here is my dilemma , I was hired for a very specific purpose and my contract was for just that. But what was the real purpose of what I was performing?
I found an issue I report it, they re-mediate the mold but do not correct the condition that is causing it.
This is an example of what I found. A bathroom exhaust vent to a gable vent. Mold was occurring because the vent can not exhaust the moisture when air pressure is moving into the attic space. The moist air can not escape the attic and condensates on the sheeting and/or joists/trusses.
So what was the purpose and who does this protect? This is just a case of doing something from a check list and not truly evaluating the situation.
If anyone is relocating I highly recommend that you hire a competent independent home inspector to perform a thorough inspection to ensure you have all the information available to make an informed decision.
