Being in the business as a mold remediator for as long as I have means I’ve come across different situations and problems. The career of a mold remediator comes with a lot of responsibility, this isn’t a career in which you can get by with mediocre work, mold is a sensitive matter, my ultimate goal is to help individuals have a safe mold free home or work space. It is important to remember that mold is a type of fungus that occurs natural in nature and acts as a decomposer. Mold outside in nature is needed but in one’s home or work place mold can act as a health hazard and as a decomposer destroying the property. The important fact to remember about mold is that if its growing inside it must be removed as quickly as possible. Recently, we were contacted by Tracy, a single mother in Los Angeles, she called to schedule an appointment for our $85 mold inspection. The very next day we went out to her home where she directed us to a bathroom covered in mold. As we turned to speak to her she broke down crying, telling us she knew it was mold and had gotten two other companies to go out to her property only to rip her off. Both companies test to determine if it was indeed mold, which was necessary because if you are a mold remediator and you see an infestation like this testing isn’t needed. Both companies presented astronomical estimates to fix the issue. Tracy hired the less expensive one in hopes to save money but she says all they did was wiped the wall down with something and within two day the mold started growing. As Tracy continued to break down she explained she didn’t have money to be throwing away, she knew the mold problem had to be fixed but she couldn’t afford the ridiculous $6000 estimate she got from the other company. Hearing that number shocked us for $6000 we could tear down her bathroom and build her a new one! We presented Tracy with a reasonable bid to remediate the mold. Our expert advice is to do you research in regard to who you hire to repair your home especially with such a sensitive matter. There are companies out there that are reasonable in their pricing and will work with you. If you are in need of property services we will do our best to assist you or refer you to someone who can.
