New Homes Are Often Mold Infested 
Before the New Buyer Even Moves In!

Newly-built homes, plus houses under construction [such as the mold contaminated custom-built Richardson, Texas, home shown in the photographs below], are often mold contaminated even before the new homeowner moves in because of many home builder construction errors and mistakes such as: 

          (1) moldy building materials are received from the builder’s supplier---today's timbers are not kiln-dried as in earlier times, and thus contain a high internal moisture content that makes mold growth possible in the timbers---read about the 2005 $22 million dollar settlement by a California lumber yard in favor of a California family whose whom was ruined by toxic mold from moldy lumber provided by the lumber yard for the construction of the family's home;
         (2) the home builder and its supervisors, employees, and subcontractors fail to do quality control to inspect for, and, thus, prevent moldy building materials from being used in the home’s construction;
        (3) the builder stores the inventory of building materials directly on the outside ground [allowing water to wick up from the ground into the building materials] with no covering plastic sheeting to protect the building materials from rain [which thus supplies the necessary water to enable mold to grow in and on the materials] and high humidity [also enables mold to grow];
        (4) the construction crew fails to cover the entire home under construction with plastic sheeting at the end of each construction day to protect the building materials from rain [which thus supplies the necessary water to enable mold to grow in and on the materials]. The roof and side walls need to be protected against rain until the entire roof shingles, siding, windows, and doors are totally installed to seal out rain; 
         (5) the builder fails to inspect and test the home for mold growth while it is being constructed and at the home’s completion; and
       (6) use of modern building materials like chip wafer boards, drywall (plasterboard), & plywood--- all of which molds love to eat.

The home pictured below was stopped during construction in 2001 because the home buyer was rightfully upset about mold growing in hundreds of locations inside this Richardson, Texas, $600,000 home being built by one of the largest Dallas builders of luxury homes. Also visit
More Photos to see more photo's of this very moldy home. Ultimately, the home builder refused to remove the mold, cancelled the buyer's purchase agreement, refunded the buyer's home deposit to the prospective buyer, completed the home without doing any mold remediation, and sold the mold-laden home to an unsuspecting buyer who was unaware of the severe mold contamination contained in the wood timbers of the house.

To prevent mold during new home construction---

Regardless of what season you build your home, make sure your builder is contractually obligated to do the following: (1) construct a mold-free home [except for very low levels of non-harmful molds];  (2) inspect lumber and building materials used, and to reject moldy lumber and building materials from being used in the construction of your home; (3) keep jobsite inventories of building materials off the ground and covered with plastic sheeting; (4) at the close of every work day, to cover the entire home in clear plastic sheeting (e.g., visqueen) to protect it against rain and snow until the roof is completely shingled, the exterior siding is completed, and the windows are installed and closed; (5) permit you to do mold inspection and testing (at your expense) during the construction process so that you can monitor whether or not the home is being built mold-free; (6) remove any mold contaminated lumber or building materials discovered during your mold inspection and testing; (7) use exterior house-wrapping [explained below]. To do the testing, you can use Mold Inspector's do-it-yourself mold testing services or a Certified Mold Inspector.

         More information on building a mold-safe home is available at Mold-Safe Construction.
