You Have Allergies.

Your House Is in a Flood Zone.
If the residential property is in an area prone to flooding, you may want to get mold testing. Even if the previous owner didn’t experience any flooding, problems could exist from years prior. Your best bet is to pay for the test and be on the safe side.
You See Signs of Water Damage.
During a walk-through, did you notice signs of past water damage? Maybe you observed a slight mustiness in the air? The house could have had a one-time leak that was properly cleaned up, but it could also have sustained ongoing exposure to moisture. If that’s the case, the property could have a mold problem, and you may not even know it.
You Like to Cover Your Bases.
You’re the type of person who likes to make an informed decision. The more information you can gather about the property, the better you can proceed in purchasing your new home. if that’s the case, go ahead and get a mold inspection so you don’t have to wonder whether mold is lurking unseen.
