“Questions linger over mold tests” (Article)

Interesting article about air test results from a prior remediation cleanup. According to the article Stachybotrys was found in the indoor test but was still cleared. It unfortunately does not say how many spores were found. Many inspectors will pass a containment when one to two spores of Stachy are present.



Mold remediation companies tested in Arizona. (Article)

mis-120604-self-in-crawlspace_small.jpgHere is another story of a local news station going undercover and checking out mold remediation companies. The key to the story is located in the last line..  “Consumers who think they may have mold should first have it tested. The test usually costs between $100 and $400 and it takes a couple days to get the results back.” I couldn’t agree more… having a third party inspector out to inspect and test who also DOES NOT PROFIT from remediation is the best way to protect yourself as a consumer.
