14 Costly Problems of Old Homes You Should Watch Out For

Mold removal

Mold and pests can pose a serious risk to one’s health, given that they can go undetected for quite some time before they make their presence (and damage) known. Minor mold removal works can cost around $500 while major works can go as high as $6,000.

Lead paint removal

Anyone who’s ever had their home interior painted knows this work does not come cheap. On average, it can cost around $2,007 but the work might be more than necessary if your current paint contains traces of lead. It can happen quite often.

If ingested, lead can cause long-term harm in adults. You might not be licking the paint off the walls but guess what…children might find it quite enjoyable. For everyone’s safety, you need to seal the paint with a new coat of paint (without lead) or remove the existing paint, especially if it shows signs of deterioration.
