Well today I was "informed" by a Hygentist that they have been doing Clearance testing for 2 "very large" banks on their foreclosed properties that contractors did the "bleach treat and cover with kilz".

27 out of 28 failed indoor air quality testing.

They are then having to tell the professional mold company (the real ones with the certifications and training) what the scope of work is to remediate the problem.

This "real company" is then bidding to fix the Service Companies Contractors non-compliance clearance failing work.

DO YOU KNOW WHO IS PAYING THE PROFESSIONAL COMPANIES COST?:whistling

At least I'm doing the bidding!!!:thumbsup:

I am so glad I never did a mold removal (as far as the company) and always sub-contract to a license pro who does that type of work for a living. And we never ever just did a kilts over anything, never would we deal with mold, I wouldn't want my kids living in a house that I clean the mold on so I never did it.

Amen!! Same here. I treat these homes as if my family would move in. I still can't believe these banks want us to clean out moldy refrigerators.

The banks only care about one thing. CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I've only done 2 of those kilz jobs. I protested loudly the entire time.
What a crock it is what they accept for some thing so serious that is going to cost them A LOT more down the road to do it right.

The banks were very important just after WWII when they were lending large amounts of money on properties that were questionable. The banks were a strong force in procedure, codes and materials in an effort to protect their investments/donations to the returning G.I.s.

Later, the marketers and some manufacturers got involved and upped the annual cost and investment, so the banks took a back seat. Now the banks just protect their arse on loans, but support the new EXISTING codes and standards.

It is amazing what advertising, gimmick names or a cuddly pink cat can do.
