Offset Mold Removal Costs with Ontario New Home Warranty
Posted in Mold Removal, on April 27, 2022
A mold outbreak can catch you off guard. While mold removal in Toronto can be affordable with the right remediation services, it's often not budgeted for when moving into a new home, which is already cost-intensive. On top of your home’s mortgage, there are also other fees that you have to worry about, such as moving costs, renovations, utility bills and more. How much you spend on mold removal costs can be suprising, but it’s still necessary for the health of your new home and its occupants.
While do-it-yourself mold removal is an option, it isn’t typically the safest approach, and it doesn’t guarantee that your property is completely clear of any mold. Mold removal services at Canada’s Restoration Services ensure that your new home is mold free. Our comprehensive approach reduces the risk of a repeat mold infestation by addressing any contributing factors to the outbreak. And while such services are costly, there are ways that you can offset such expenses with a new home warranty.
Why Is Mold Removal Important?
If you’re dealing with a mold outbreak, mold removal in Toronto is integral to the well-being of your home and your own health.
As mold grows, toxic spores are released into the air and can travel to other places of your home. When these spores are inhaled, you can experience a variety of severe health risks. Common symptoms are allergy-like – sneezing, coughing and eye irritation. You may also even experience nausea, dizziness, headaches, respiratory infections and even depression. In addition to health risks, mold can compromise your home’s structural integrity. Mold can eat away at the wood used to build your home, insulation and even your furniture.
The money you spend on mold removal cost can be high, but professional help can successfully stop mold from spreading. Canada’s Restoration Services will do a full inspection of your home and check mold friendly rooms. We kill a mold outbreak from worsening by controlling any contributing factors to its growth and limiting the amount of moisture present.
Ontario New Home Warranty & Mold Removal
Tarion Warranty Corporation, which was previously known as the Ontario New Home Warranty program, will protect new homeowners from damage expenses from defective workmanship and materials. They also cover homeowner’s fees when the Ontario Building Code in constructing a new home is breached, specifically when a construction company fails to fulfill its statutory warranty. Mold removal expenses, in some circumstances, can be covered.
If a homeowner finds that defective workmanship or materials (i.e. using mold-infected construction materials) have resulted in mold on their property, any damages to the home would be covered by Tarion. Poor workmanship or materials that lead to water leakage and then a mold outbreak would also be covered. A major structural defect, such as a substantial crack in the basement foundation that leads to a mold outbreak, is also covered under Tarion.
