I am looking at the possibility of buying and rehabing a brick veneer home
that was closed up for about 5 years. During this time there was a
plumbing leak which resulted in water standing on the wood floors in
several rooms to the extent that the floors, sub floors and joists need to
be replaced. We are estimating 150,000 in repair costs exclusive of mold
remediation which I know next to nothing about. I do not know to what
extent there may be mold in the walls.
The home is now dry, but of course there was a lot of mold. Can a
situation like this be remediated? How do I find a reliable contractor do
do the remediation work after we replace all floor, etc. that needs to be
replaced. Is there any kind of a certification program?
What kind of problems could I get into by selling the house (after doing
the remidiation work) the buyer finds there is still a mold problem?
Many thanks for your help.
