Property Buyers in Puerto Rico Turn to Zimmetry Environmental to Identify Mold & Other IAQ Issues
Zimmetry Environmental provides indoor air quality testing and consulting services to identify and resolve air quality issues in all types of buildings.
Water damage, mold and other IAQ issues can be obvious at times, but that is not always the case.
While some residential and commercial property buyers and investors may look for a property that is in need of major repairs, many do not want to deal with anything more than minor cosmetic fixes. There are few things that can cause a bigger headache or drain on the wallet for a new property owner than discovering water damage and mold growth after the sale is complete.
To prevent any unexpected surprises due to existing water damage and mold, anyone buying a property should schedule a thorough inspection. For residential properties, buyers often turn to home inspectors. While some home inspectors may have experience with mold inspections and indoor air quality (IAQ) issues, others may not offer this service or have been properly trained in this field. Fortunately, there are consultants who specialize in mold and indoor air quality inspections and testing and the leading firm offering these services in Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean is Zimmetry Environmental. In addition to residential mold and IAQ services, Zimmetry also provides these services for commercial and institutional properties.
“Water damage, mold and other IAQ issues can be obvious at times, but that is not always the case,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “Indoor moisture can quickly result in mold growth due to structural problems and leaks, faulty plumbing, poor ventilation, drainage issues, elevated humidity levels or past flooding events. Even brand new construction may have mold issues, elevated levels of volatile organic compounds and some properties built over areas with contaminated soil or groundwater may have issues associated with vapor intrusion. Older properties also frequently have concerns associated with lead-based paints and asbestos. It takes a trained and experienced professional to know what to look for and how to properly identify its presence.”
