Bleach and Kilz Rafters

Hello,
I'm curious how others calculate the square footage when bidding to bleach and kilz rafters. There is obviously more area treated than there is floor area but are you only bidding by the room area?
Thanks

As a general rule...i usually just double the square footage and make a note of that in my bid.

I'm glad to see I'm not alone on this. Unfortunately I'm being backcharged the difference of this and the room area. It seems the national thinks that anything over the room area is considered excessive and will not pay.
This is another, learn the hard way for me and I'm not sure how I will go about bidding in the future. Obviously they are wrong in backcharging for this and I have the to option to not work for them but that's not the direction I want to go. It seems once they make up their mind on a backcharge, no amount of explaining will change their mind.

I'm sure this is why they no longer refer to mold but discoloration when having bleach and kilz done.

What these guys are trying to tell you is it doesn't matter what you or the service company calls it, the eventual homeowner is going to call it mold - or maybe something else - and it's making them and their children very sick. The previous house owner (bank, HUD, etc.) is going to look & see that they paid you to take care of that problem and backcharge you &/or your insurance (you pay the deductable) to have the remediation done correctly.

So, no matter how you choose to measure those rafters or joists or whatever, it will not add up to enough $$$ to accept all the liability.

Iíve already told you more than I know.
