Does it smell musty in your home or office? Are you having difficulty breathing? Or, are you experiencing headaches and sneezing frequently? If so, mold could be the culprit. In this case, an indoor air quality test is necessary. Sometimes, however, the test may not be that necessary. This is often the case where the cause of the mold growth is pretty obvious. For example, when your home’s roof is leaking. What constitutes a need for a mold testing is not knowing whether or not there is mold in your Orlando home. If you’re purchasing a home, having the air tested for mold presence is in your best interest. This is because the outcome of the mold test could alter the decision to continue with the transaction or the terms of the real estate transaction. Purchasing a home and then discover...

Common Causes of Mold Here are some of the common causes of mold: (Gainesville, and Ocala, FL) Humidity: If you live in a humid climate, the possibility of mold is very high as this fungus thrives in humid places. In places like Gainesville, The Villages and Ocala, Florida, where it rains constantly, the humidity is naturally high, which is why you may need a mold assessment. Leaking Pipes or Roof: More often than not, it’s a water leak within the structure of the house resulting in mold formation. A leaking pipe is the most common reason for mold behind drywall and under the sink. Also, if the roof is damaged and leaks water, it can also cause mold on the roof and even the floor. Winter Condensation: In winters, a condensation layer can form on surfaces because of fluctuation in temper...

Why a Commercial Mold Inspection needed? Most lawsuits allege that mold problems could have been avoided, so commercial real estate owners need to show due diligence by investigating any suspected mold problem. We can document your due diligence in investigating mold issues and determine whether they exist at all. We also can provide expert witness testimony. Toxic molds, commonly referred to as black mold, are more dangerous than ordinary molds because their spores contain poisonous mycotoxins. In concentrated amounts, mycotoxins can cause skin blistering, nosebleeds, asthma symptoms, or chest pains, among other things. In extreme situations, they can even cause shock and death. Unfortunately, there is no cure for a mold allergy, but there are ways to reduce the symptoms. While a chan...

Applying for a mortgage won't be the only time you hear the term "hard credit check"; applying for any loan may result in one. You may also hear the term "soft credit check." Unlike a hard credit check, a soft credit check typically does not affect your credit score and may be used for things like background checks. #thehelpfulagent #home #houseexpert #house #listreports #homeowner #themoreyouknow #realestate #realtor #realestateagent #icanhelp #finances #happyhome #happyhomeowners

Thomas Tarrant lost his job during the start of the Covid crisis. He decided to open his own business, bringing handmade fresh baked cookies with unique and interesting flavors to your doorstep. I discovered his business and the story behind it after the Gainesville Sun did a feature on him: https://www.gainesville.com/business/20200416/sweet-turn-gainesville-man-loses-job-starts-cookie-bizBeing spotlighted by the local newspaper was a boon for his business and cookie orders started to come in. I placed my first one immediately for a dozen cookies. Thomas was friendly with great communication when I contacted him with a few questions. He arrived the next day, donning mask and gloves, and delivered my cookies to the front door. The process was entirely contactless. You purchase and pay f...

Ichiban Sushi has relocated to 4928 NW 39th Ave, Gainesville, FL 32606, in the Magnolia Park shopping center. The new location is more spacious and features an updated decor with cozy and private booths, dim mood lighting, saltwater aquarium, focal-point bar and attractive new menus. We recently tried the new location for the first time and were pleased with the atmosphere and friendly service. I prefer booths to open concept seating and I was very happy to see they invested in a lot of booth seating. There are chairs for people who are uncomfortable in booths and these may be removed for table to be accessible to wheelchairs. I've been a patron at Ichiban for about 20 years and while I love their sushi, I was not a fan of the atmosphere and decor at the previous location. I've been pla...
