This could be big

Was just speaking with a disgruntled contractor. They are in the middle of getting in touch with almost every (or as many as they can) health departments in New York and New Jersey.
According to them, they are giving the addresses of houses where they know the old treat with bleach and kilz has been used.
Guess who this will come back on? Yup the dumb asses who insisted on doing the crap the wrong way just to get the money. Guess a lot of contractors are going to be singing the blues real soon.

It can't cover mold..... Since mold (discoloration is considered a hazard then it has to be written through a Pollution Liability Policy.

And you probably cannot get that unless you are CERTIFIED.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

If you dig a little deeper you will probably find out it does not cover work for anyone but SG. You need a second policy for that. Want another beer?

Exactly, that's why I never bought into that scheme. Soon as they told me that I was outa there!!!

I am no mold expert and I've always turned down and walked away from "discoloration" jobs, but I was told a long time ago that when bleach comes in contact with mold it releases spores into the air and just causes a bigger problem??

SG insurance carriers don't have a premium, they just charge you a yearly downpayment for future claims.
