Received a new WO yesterday to remove fallen ceiling tiles from property and BATF. Sounds simple huh. Not so fast my little friend. This is what I walked in on.

Mineral Rock Metal Aluminium

Floor Room Flooring

Ceiling Beam Wood Mold Room

this was a 100 x 125 ft 3 story apartment complex. You dont even want to see the basement. Needless to say I put in reverse and and bid to have a company come in for an estimate.

I hope you were wearing the proper PPE while in there. That "discoloration" will make you sick in a quick hurry!

Yep as soon as I opened the door the smell hit me like a mack truck. Back to the truck to get the suit and face gear. Here is the "discoloration" in the basement.

re

My recommendation has always been 5 gallons of gasoline and a road flare. What is your solution?
I wish that freddy/fanny would get it that sometimes tearing it down IS the best option. A guy I knew did a job like that last summer. It was a farmhouse in the middle of a field but it only owned like 2 aces. The house in great shape was worth MAYBE $30k I think he said they spent $40 getting the drywall cleaned up and the house was still a dump.

Do not allow them to alter, ammend, cut corners or numbers on your bids. These days, when you do mold work for these clowns, you are walking a plank. Do the jobs on your terms or not at all.

I concur and add you are not only doing the work for them but the future owners. The banks will NOT Hesitate on thrioowing you under the bus if the new owners get sick and have to strip down all the units. I'd bid to have a mold remediation company do the work and become an additional insured on their GL policy then you have 2 layers of protection and MAKE SURE you have proper insurance coverage with your policy !!

Anyone here do mold remediation? I know a GC with the state certs for Florida that is interested in working with me on this type of work.

Just trying to get a feel for it to see if it is worth pursuing.
