I just got off the phone with someone and a large portion of our conversation was about radon and mold. Unfortunately, they are pretty common in Colorado, so I just wanted to give you a quick insight about what happens when either of these problems come up in a home you own or a home that you’re trying to buy.

We once worked with a seller who had a sealed-off basement crawlspace. They never went down there. But once we had a full-priced offer on the home and had the inspection done, they found that the crawl space was full of water and we had no idea how long it had been there.  

Our high elevation causes problems with radon.
They opened it up and we found the sump pump wasn't working. We had to pump all the water out, find the leak, and test for mold and radon. We ended up finding some mold and the radon levels were fairly high as well. We had to put a vapor barrier over the dirt and install a radon mitigation system to make the house sellable and inhabitable.

The reason why problems like this aren’t at all that rare here in Colorado is because of our high elevation. Radon can cause lung cancer, so you’ll have to install something to fix it if there are elevated levels in your home.

As for mold, some of it is very harmful to breathe in, while some is not. Make sure you do your research if you ever have mold in your home. We had four bids for mold cleanup that ranged from $1,500 to $10,000. Not only do you have to be aware of mold, you have to be aware of hiring the right company too.

If you have any questions for me about radon, mold testing, or anything else related to buying or selling a home, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
