Marco Island Mold Remediators

 A comprehensive detail inspection report is the first step in correcting a mold problem

For the best Marco Island mold remediation, cleanup company must have a detailed inspection report that identifies the location and extent of a mold contamination.

Report will also include cleanup protocols so that when clearance inspection is performed everyone knows what should have been remediated. Inspections must be performed by independent licensed mold assessor.

Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) does not license companies for mold assessment or mold remediation.  By Florida law they only license individuals for mold assessor (inspection) or mold remediator  (removal)

Humidity Bloom

High Humidity in a home often occurs when HVAC system is not working properly resulting in mold growth on furniture, cabinets, clothes and even carpet. Many homes on Marco Island are vacant for part of the year, hence we see many "humidity blooms' every fall when seasonal residents return.

High humidity in vacant homes promote mold growth

Marco Island mold remediators must licensed by the state of Florida.

Remediators cannot do the inspection and then cleanup the mold problem on the same job within 12 months.  An independent inspector is required by Florida law to protect the consumer.  Many feel cleanup companies always find something to cleanup. You do not determine a home has a mold problem based solely on air sampling.  Air sampling is often used to determine the need for further investigation or the extent of a mold problem.  Home Inspectors or mold remediators must also be licensed mold assessors if they are: "Advertising or representing oneself to be a Mold Assessor."  OR are "Taking samples for purposes of testing for the presence of mold.

Your Marco Island Mold Remediator usually has to operate  “air scrubbers” when cleaning up a mold problem.  During mold removal, while hepa vacuuming and damp wiping and demolition of affected material these scrubbers remove air borne particles including mold spores.  These air scrubbers should be turned off and capped for 24 hours before any air sampling is performed as part of clearance inspection.  Often we see inexperienced Mold Remediators turn off the air scrubbers and not cap the opening causing mold spores to be introduced back into the cleaned area. In this type of situation the area cleaned must be hepa vacuumed and damp wiped again; adding time and expense to the mold remediation project.

7-1-2012“Problem is, even if a HI can take a mold sample (and the ruling is not out yet), a HI can not make one single comment about mold. You can't identify it, say it is mold, mention the word mold, recommend any treatment/mitigation, comment on health concerns, comment on how the mold was formed or the extent of it. A HI can not recommend removal of flooring, drywall or any structural component. I would not want to be a HI involved in a lawsuit who does not have authority to conduct mold sampling per the FL DPBR/CILB. Without having authority from the DBPR as a Mold Assessor or CGC, I don't know how a lab can accept, analyze or issue a report to the HI as the HI is not qualified to discuss the report.

Until this is clarified, in my opinion, a HI should stay away from mold and at the most, maybe sell the HO a cannister type kit which they use and send to the lab themselves; of course, these kits are basically worthless.

I applaud Nick's effort to allow HI's to conduct mold sampling and I think they should be able to with training and I read he is willing to defend FL Hi's in any legal issue. I hope that doesn't ever occur.

A HI wants to sell mold sampling to provide a complete service to the client and add a revenue stream but HI's, particularly newer HI's, should be cautious and really think about this as experienced mold assessors and contractors know finding and eliminating all detectable mold sources can be a challenge. There are many lawsuits over mold which pops up months after remediation and clearance. HO's and insurers are not happy to find out the new drywall put in 9 months ago now has to be torn out again and now the HO remembers that the baby has been sick for months and it is probably the result of the incomplete mold job. The Dad is irritable and Mom has lost any interest in cosortium. The 14 month old baby will never be a world class pianist due to breathing mold. The home is sick and has lost 90% of its resale value.

And your defense is, I belong to InterNachi. No, I don't qualify to take the State of Florida Mold Assessor test. No, I don't have E&O insurance to conduct mold assessment. No, I don't have any experience or background in mold assessment, sampling or remediation. No, I can't really explain why I took the sample there or there or at that height or duration.
Why did I tell the client they needed a mold screen? It looked like mold and I wanted to make $50.

A word of unsolicited advice: If you take mold samples and you forward the results of the lab to the client, you should very clearly advise the client to seek the services of a licensed Mold Assessor if your sample shows detectable levels, disengage yourself and move on. do not discuss the why's and whyfore's as you don't know.”
 

Mold remediation on Marco Island or Naples is done step by step. Preliminary mold inspection by independent licensed mold assessor then cleanup by licensed mold remediator; must be a different company, Florida law.    

Your Florida licensed Marco Island Mold Inspector (Certified Indoor Environmentalist) will write recommendations for cleanup of any mold problem as part of their inspection report based on nationally accepted industry standards. This allows client to get proposals from any licensed mold cleanup company based on a report that identifies source of mold problem and the extent of problem.

Cape Coral Mold Remediator (mold removal) must have a Lee County “business tax receipt” (occupational license).
Lee County requires an occupational license (now called a business tax receipt) for Mold Remediators (mold removal).   This is for the individual not the company as in the past.
