I am looking at a home of my dream but it has a few problems, so I'm not sure if its worth pursuing.
This is a single family wood frame house built in early 1990's that has suffered some water damage. There is a stench in the entire house, the floors on the 1st level have bubbled, and water damage in the basement. It seems that the house was purposefully flooded through the 1st level. Besides soaked carpet in the basement and damaged drywall, I am trying to get an understanding of what else may be affected, and if the house is salvageable so any word of advice is appreciated.
What affect does mold have on the studs? perhaps the interior can be dried out, what are mold's long term effects on health?
