When bidding to remediate mold - Ignorant ASS!
When bidding to remediate mold.........there is an assumtion between the bank and contractor that alleged "mold" was caused by this or that. Why would a contractor not want to tarp a roof, spray the walls/ceilings/cabinets with bleach or zep eggshell and get paid well to do it? The reaason for remediation is to pin point the source and monitor progression. Not to drop the whole wad to a wanna-be expert with an online certificate that has one interest only, sucking every penny out of the situation he/she can. thats why the bank will send out different inspectors/contractors to the same property so that they have quality control over who is a real contractor and who doesnt know what their doing. As soon as that mold "expert" tests and verifies mold at a property then its got to go on the properties legally binding discloure form forever and the house and subsequent neighborhood around it drops in value. The bank can instead pay a few hundred bucks and get the spores bleached and monitor for further progression once a dehumidifier is in place and the source of humidity has been repaired. At that time they are sure to have a qualified professional test and remediate if the mold growth continues to spread. There is a really good reason the banks want pictures. i have $100 resirator mask and a few packs of white disposible jumpsuits, they have made me money. I put disclaimers that remediation will not kill mold behind walls and ceiling tiles and thats further inspection will be necessary.Yes common sense does apply, i know when i am whooped by a horrid situation and i bid appropriately (a whole lot) and live to see another day.
