Total Mold Scam
In the past six weeks, I have had five clients that were all burned by the same company. This company will come out to your house and inspect for mold, then collect air and surface samples and will promise you a protocol (scope of work for remediation). Their protocol is actually an estimate for them to do the work. If you try to contact them to get more info... good luck. The only thing they're interested in is getting the job! Thats highly unethical, to say the least, but what makes it worse is that they also read their own samples. The lab report says "reviewed by (I really cant print their name) Laboratory", but they're actually doing the lab work themselves. In 4 of the 5 cases where I followed after this company, I did not find a mold problem at all. Why is it that they found so much mold? Is it because they wanted to create a job for themselves? So, how will you know if you have been burned by the same company? Well, if the guy hands you a business card and there is no name on it (except the company name) then you should worry. If your report isnt actully signed by a person, and does not reference a persons name anywhere in the report, then you have hired the wrong company. If they claim to be "Industrial Hygienists", "Certified Microbial Consultants", and "Remediation & Restoration Project Managers", yet they do not list the names of any employees on their web site, their reports, or their business cards, I would be very careful about hiring them.
