Mold found at Fort Eustis – Photos sent to me from member of US Military stationed there.

Original Post; https://mold101.wordpress.com/2008/05/10/mold-found-at-fort-eustis/

I’m posting a follow up to the article I posted in May about mold found at Fort Eustis. A member of the military stationed there was kind enough to send me photos via email of mold he observed in his living quarters.

He told me.. “These photos were taken in October / November 2002 at Fort Eustis.  I cant remember the barracks name but it was the second old building behind the 6th Battalion HQ barracks.”

He further explained to me in the email that he is now allergic to virtually everything and has had major sinus issues along with a number of surgeries. He complained a number of times to commanders and nothing was done.

Thank you Simon for sending along these photos and sharing your experience. To serve your country and then be asked to live in these conditions is unfortunate and downright despicable.

“When it all falls down” (Article)

A good lesson to be learned by this post.. avoid unsecured deposits. Read the entire article which also includes mold claims against this particular builder whom the article is about.

I’ve had a water loss in my home.. should I contact my insurance company?

This is a good question that I’m often asked on site or on the phone with clients. My answer… tread carefully and think it out before you pick up the phone.  Reporting a loss can land your home in the CLUE (Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange) database raising premiums or worse dropped coverage. For a more detailed explanation of this database and it’s effect on your insurance coverage, check out this article by Liz Pulliam Weston.
