GreenWorks is a certified mold remediation, not a realtor. But that did not stop us from helping to clear the path for a home purchase in Wall, Monmouth County in 2011.
We completed a mold remediation project on time and demonstrated to the home seller and buyer that mold problems had been resolved. The deal moved ahead, and the buyer and the seller were happy with the outcome.
Mold Damage May Be Chasing Away Home Buyers
Visible mold damage to your property may be chasing away buyers and preventing you from getting the market price for your home. As our work in Wall shows, mold remediation can help you sell your home faster and at a higher price.
The Situation in Wall
A homeowner was unable to sell his home because of excessive mold growth. The mold growing in the house was feeling the air with mold spores and threatening the health of the buyer and his family.
Mold represents a potentially dangerous threat inside a home. Indoor air quality is negatively impacted by mold that can lead to respiratory conditions and potentially unhealthy air in the home.
The situation was so bad that initially the buyer almost pulled out of the deal.
Then, GreenWorks, a certified mold remediation in the state of New Jersey, was brought in to assess the situation and resolve the mold issue.
We were able to remediate the mold and provided post-remediation sampling, demonstrating to the home seller and buyer that the issue was resolved.
That pushed the deal ahead. The buyer and the seller were content with the outcome. What happened to the homeowner in Wall may be happening to you.
Don’t let mold or other environmental issues scuttle a home or property purchase. As soon as those issues surface, contact GreenWorks for a thorough assessment of the situation and a complete cleanup solution that will get the transaction back on track.
We can help you sell your home faster and for a higher price.
Benefits of Certified Mold Remediation for Home Sellers
Two benefits of letting a certified mold remediation examine your home:

That’s where having a firm like GreenWorks by your side will pay dividends for years to come.

Mold Remediation Assures Buyers Your Home Is a Safe Place to Live
Mold spores can quickly grow and produce allergens and irritants, jeopardizing your family members’ health. We have written an entire article on the health hazards of black mold. Make sure to check it out, because home buyers usually do plenty of research before taking their lives’ biggest investment decision.
In a more recent blog, we list the effects of mold growth on human health. Here are some of the conditions of unregulated mold growth.

What happened in Wall is more of a rule than an exception. Mold can disillusion home buyers and reduce your property’s value. Let a certified professional complete a mold remediation project to sell your home fast and for a higher value.
