WHY SHOULD I SCHEDULE A MOLD INSPECTION BEFORE BUYING< SELLING OR REMODELING?
Many remodelers do not understand that they could be risking not only your Health but their own and those who are working for them. After attending a recent tradeshow I was alerted to the fact that many home remodelers that I ask what they do when they find mold responded "Oh we never find mold or if we do we handle it ourselves!
ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS TO PERFORM MOLD TESTING OR MOLD REMEDIATION?
Texas and Florida are among the strictest for enforcement and require a list of pre-requisites be met prior to even permitting you to apply to attend state classes, followed by State proxied exams and an FBI Background check. Once licensed you are required to carry Mold Pollution Liability and E & O Ins as well as General Liability and take on going CEU's to renew your licenses every two years.
HOW CAN I Prevent FUNGAL COLONIES?
After a Water Event the source of the problem MUST BE RESOLVED quick as possible. If 72 hours has passed, it's likely too late to call an Emergency Disaster Recovery Specialist.
WHY IS IT TOO LATE TO CALL A RESTORATION COMPANY TYPICALLY AFTER 72 HRS OF THE WATER EVENT?
That is just about how long it takes for fungal structures to begin forming. When the area begins to smell and the substrates begin to dry on their own "Naturally" it is also likely that the water/moisture has been absorbed into porous substrates such as bedding, mattresses, draperies, carpet, padding, sheetrock, ceiling and ceiling tiles. These will need assessed for proper procedures to protect your health and property properly.
