BLACK MOLD ??  

Posted on May 23rd, 2006. About .

I have a confession to make! As a Specialty Remodeling Contractor for most of the last 20 years, I have been guilty many times of spraying a bleach solution on mold and painting over problems that I never knew could be life threatening!

No one knew!

Mold has been around for Millions of years and as a Home Improvement Professional, I chose, as I thought I should, to Tear out what I could see, Clean the Area and ASSUME that all was well!

I had never heard of Mycotoxins before in my life!

Then My Grand-Daughter, who was on vacation with her Mom at a friends’ house for a couple of weeks, became seriously ill with breathing problems when she was only a few months old. The Doctor in the Emergency room had No-Idea what caused it!

Suddenly, everyone in our friends’ house was becoming ill and Mold began to show up in the house from water intrusions and a faulty roof installation !
( The house has since had $135,000 + in Remediation and a years + worth of inconvenience to everyone involved! )

My Grand-Daughter never experienced any breathing problems after she came home and I wondered if the Mold that I had heard so much about on television and newspapers could have been the cause!

After a TON of research and adding MORE and MORE Toxic Black Mold Info to the site over the last few years, I have had 10′s of 1000′s of emails, posts in our forums and phone calls from home owners and renters, with NO CLUE what to do about Mold in their homes and that have stories that would make those of you with a heart cry along with me!

To this day, I am absolutely ASTOUNDED at the Ignorance that accompanies Toxic Black Mold!

Most Doctors are completely baffled by it!

Insurance Companies refuse to admit it exists, but have been paying Millions in the last few years to Remediate it! Until it became TOO expensive of course! Now they’re heading for the hills. Hmmmmm!

But folks continue to be sick when exposed to it!

We are now the LARGEST TOXIC BLACK MOLD Education and Solution site on the Internet and feel that we have helped many 1000′s of people take steps in the right direction to avoid having Toxic Black Mold take over their lives.

So, Let us Help You!

Toxic Black Mold is a REAL Risk and can cause health problems for YOU and your loved ones. Especially young children, the elderly and those with respiratory problems.

The Good News is that it can be Avoided and/or Cleaned Up!

BEFORE YOU HIRE A HOME CONTRACTOR

CONTACT INFORMATION
It seems obvious, but make sure that you include in the contract the contractor’s name, physical address, phone number, insurance company and account and license numbers. If there is a dispute, you need to know where the company is located (you can’t serve a subpoena if you don’t have a physical address – a post office box number won’t do!), the company owner, the name of the insurance and bonding carriers and the way by which you can reach all involved parties.

SCOPE OF WORK
Require a complete description of the work to be done. This includes the overall scope of the work as well as individual aspects of the project; from foundation and framing to all finish work required. The type and quality of all materials should be spelled out, including manufacturers, brand name, quantity, weight, color, style, and size. Be sure allowances for fixtures, floor coverings, etc. are sufficient to provide you with the level of quality you require. In addition, indicate all equipment, such as scaffolding or cement mixers, which will be used over the course of the project. If you have architectural plans, include them in this section as well.

If you decide to change the scope of the work during the job by either adding or subtracting items, you should make sure there is a written change order, with project cost and timing changes signed off on by both the contactor and homeowner.

PROJECT SCHEDULE
Clearly define the project’s start date, and …………………………………..
