I was called to this site because the other home inspector reported evidence of mold in the basement. He couldn't be sure it was mold without testing.

I did a visual test and confirmed mold. He wanted 145.00 to test.

Gary,

nearly every repo (40,000 in mid-Michigan) has the power turned off. Most houses have basements and about 60% have sump pits and pumps.

No power = no pump = flood.

Almost all older basements will flood to abt 42" during the wet times of the year, if there is no pump.

This info is anecdotal based on my knowledge and experiences.

Where is Walter J when I need him?

That's not just a doll. It's Howdy Doodee!

Well, maybe it ain't Howdy Doodee, but I could test him for freckles if you like. [:)]

It is a crying shame to see damage like that, with no shortage of skilled and knowledgeable people that could have prevented it, given the chance. All those evictions ended up costing the banks big time, IMO.
