Prolonged mold exposure can cause severe health issues from respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, plus many others.
All molds have the potential to cause health effects. Molds can produce allergens that can trigger allergic reactions or even asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. Potential health concerns are an important reason to prevent mold growth and to remediate/clean up any existing indoor mold growth. Some types of mold can produce chemical compounds (called mycotoxins), although they do not always do so. Molds that are able to produce toxins are common. In some circumstances, the toxins produced by indoor mold may cause health problems.

During a home inspection our inspectors run a lot of water at multiple fixtures to do what we call a hydro test of the plumbing system. Even with our thorough inspection we are still not able to see the interior of the sewer line. ( This is why the underground sewer lines are excluded from all professional home inspection standards and by all home inspection companies ) We also are not flushing toilet paper, doing laundry or washing food down the garbage disposal which can get caught on tree roots or deteriorated drain lines and cause a backup of the sewer line into your newly purchased home. To see these underground drain lines you need a sewer scope inspection.
