Coverups

Found this today on a mold job we are correcting for a large Gov Agency. P&P company did their little paint and cover job. Neighbor came over and informed us 320,000ga of water went through this home (verified with City Water Dept) and showed us where the breaks "were located". Couldn't tell since new drywall was installed over the breaks and the prior "contractor" put popcorn texture on the ceilings and the walls in an attempt to cover the problem up... Did a great job of covering it!

Unfortunately all the broken pipes were capped off (not fixed) and drywalled over

Pic is of 1 of the capping jobs and some of the "missed" black stuff....

I recall some 400k+ homes in the Chicago area that had sat so long unattended that there were holes in roofs and fuzzy mold from basement to 2nd floor ceiling fans, and yet neighbors would jump on anyone who pulled into the drive to find out if and when the property would be going up for sale. I just talked yesterday to a broker who has a listing about 40 miles south of St Louis in a gated community. The property just had 63K worth of mold remediation completed in late November, and he can't even get anyone to drive by. The house is stigmatized, and personally, if I was writing a check for a half million house to put my kids in, and knowing some of the shoddy work that is being done, I wouldn't want anything to do with it either.

There are still crews going into mold jobs with no suits, no respirators, no air handlers or hepa vacs, etc. Just bristle brooms, bleach and a drywall knife. And there are still companies contracting that kind of work.

It's supposed to be preventive maintenance.

Exactly. That's our competition.

A new 1st for me

The Gov Agency has turned a claim into the Ins carrier for the P&P Company that completed the work. I get to meet them Friday a.m.

This is going to be fun

MTMTNMAN: YOU know this company real real good...BPWY does too
