Don't do it, but do know that you better be properly insured before tackling this type of work, a lot of insurance companies will not cover you for this .

You live in NY and you ask a dumb ass question like that?? I saw in last weeks paper there is a cleaner avaiable at most hardware stores all you do is wash and spray? How much a sq. ft. is that worth?

We do mould remediation.
What is the protocol for the remediation?
What are you cleaning?

First time I've really disagreed with you D is Okay.
Mould remediation is a serious business for anyone I know in business.
PAPRs, HEPA vacs, Neg air/HEPA air scrubbers, full containment, full PPE and most importantly a protocol by an IEP.

There's a ton of guys who do water & mold and this is how they do it.

(1) suck out the water with ninja
(2) spray benefect
(3) throw down an air mover
(4) get the credit card info
(5) go to Mississauga Tavern or House Of Lancaster have a seat, enjoy the show and wait for pager to go off for next flood.

The scarey thing is that they probably do more than the legit companies that the insurance companies don't want to pay for? The same adjusters that attend Lee's seminars are real good at saving their company money??

It's also all about the home owner with little or no insurance waiting to get the least done to get by with the least amount of money.

Remove the sheetrock
paint the wood with mold resistant paint.
Fog out with antimicrobial
Leave air scubbers and dehumidifiers

Yo..hold up wait a minute...let Steamer put his 2 cents in it.
 
MOST customers are clueless...most adjusters are clueless...no one knows what they are paying for.
 
Do we have national standards ????
 
This has nothing to do with Lee's insurance....Lee's insurance has just become aware for the dangersDead

Steamer there are standards. and a industrial hygenist is also need to set the scope and take readings if it is large enough?

There is a whole protocol involved. thats where the hygenist comes in. Now that also depends of how many sq. ft. of effected area you are working on. Do you need containment are you wearing the proper ppe is there excess to an exit or do you have to build a contasinment to get the junk out without affecting the rest of the non effected area. There is alot of variables, a little more than R&R and leave a N/A machine?

  This is how it's suppose to be done... but 99% of the time it's not.  I think it would only be done this way if it was IICRC headquaters...LOL
 
To tell you the truth ...most times the insurance only wants to pay for a band-aid job.... most times thats what the insurance adjuster authorizes you to do.
 
the standars are put out the window.....the customer knows no better....the guy who's doing the job smiles...and the insurance company saves money
 
Big smile

Steamer IICRC did not write the protocols they were mostly already in existance they copied them like everything else?

I believe that most insurance companies want mould remediation done properly.


Posted By: doug
Date Posted: 04/February/2007 at 8:27pm
The key word here is "MOST" Unfortunately you are never insured with one of them when something go wrong?

I've been to a house where the state farm adjuster told the lady to "SIMPLY HAVE THE CARPETS STEAM CLEANED".....I could smell the mold....I pulled back the carpet to show the customer the underpad...
 
 
ewwwwwwwww
 
believe it or not the insurance still wanted her just to steam it.....I told the woman sorry I can't touch it and gave her Lee's number...LOL
 
I could tell you 5 stories just like that one....
